Research Associate in Obstetrics and Gynaecology
University of Cambridge Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology
United Kingdom

The Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology is looking to recruit a Research Associate on a part time basis (0.5FTE).

The role will involve statistical analysis of data from the POPStar project, with additional elements of data management and linkage. The POPStar project is a data linkage project investigating how conditions in the womb can predict the future health of mothers and their children. We have a remarkable opportunity to study the health of ~4,000 mother-child pairs who participated in the Pregnancy Outcome Prediction Study (POPS). POPS recruited pregnant women at the Rosie between 2008 ¿ 2012 and collected very detailed information on pregnancy outcomes, growth, and development in the womb. The information collected during pregnancy, from interviews, blood samples and extra scans, is unique and has been used to draw important conclusions about the immediate health of mothers and babies.

The ideal candidate will have a PhD or equivalent research experience within a relevant field, as well as being able to display advanced data analysis skills.

Conversations about flexible working are encouraged at the University of Cambridge. Please feel free to discuss flexibility prior to applying (using the contact information below) or at interview if your application is successful.
