Job summary

We are seeking to appoint a Research Assistant to join the Respiratory Health and Clinical Epidemiology group led by Dr Jennifer Quint. The group focuses on projects in various aspects of Respiratory (e.g. COPD, bronchiectasis, asthma, ILD) and Cardiovascular disease (e.g. MI, heart failure).

Duties and responsibilities

This post is part funded by Chiesi (a pharmaceutical company) in response to an Investigator initiated Study submission. The aim is to develop algorithms that accurately differentiate primary and secondary care pneumonia events from exacerbations of COPD and acute asthma exacerbations, then to use those algorithms to investigate whether patients on ICS have an increased risk of pneumonia but decreased risk of exacerbations compared to those not on ICS.

The study will utilise large datasets of linked electronic health records and the postholder will carry out data management and analyses of these data. In addition, he/she will be expected to submit publications to refereed journals, prepare study reports and present the findings. You will also be expected to contribute to other projects within the group. You will work closely with and spend some time with collaborators at LSHTM. This position would suit an early career data/epidemiology scientist with an interest in further career advancement and or PhD.

You should have knowledge of UK electronic healthcare records and experience with the use of Stata or R. It is essential that you also have a BSc or equivalent in Statistics, epidemiology or other relevant quantitative discipline.
