Founded in 1845 as Queen’s College Belfast, we became an independent university in 1908. Today, we’re a member of the Russell Group, combining excellence in research and education with a student-centred ethos.
The principal aim of the post is to undertake a series of epidemiological studies as part of a CRUK funded project. The project will involve systematically assessing the association between commonly used prescription medications and cancer risk to identify candidate medications which could increase or reduce cancer risk using recently developed methods. The study will also investigate replicating the observed associations between candidate medications and oesophageal cancer risk in an independent dataset. This post is available until 31 October 2020.
Our five core values (Respect, Integrity, Excellence, Ambition, Connected) have been developed by staff and students. They express our shared understanding of what we believe, how we aim to behave and what we aspire to be as an international organisation.
The successful candidate must:
- A primary degree in a health-related subject or mathematics/statistics.
- Have or be about to obtain a relevant PhD in Epidemiology, Public Health Pharmacy, or Applied Mathematics/Statistics.
- Recent research experience and skills relevant to this project e.g. database management, statistical analysis, working with large epidemiological datasets.
- Experience of using statistical packages such as SPSS or STATA.
- Major contribution to authorship of articles in international scientific peer reviewed journals, commensurate with stage of career.
