The University of Manchester wish to appoint a Research Associate in Medical Statistics and Data Analysis to join the Digital Health Research Theme within the NIHR Applied Research Collaboration for Greater Manchester (NIHR-ARC GM), based at the University of Manchester. This position offers the opportunity to contribute to the implementation and evaluation of innovative digital interventions in health and social care across Greater Manchester, aimed at disease prevention; self-management; integrated and personalised care; and healthy ageing. Alongside qualitative /ethnographic studies, quantitative research methods will play a key role in understanding how these interventions are being used; whether they are safe and effective; and how they could be optimised.
The NIHR ARC-GM (funded for 5 years) is collaboration between the University of Manchester and the health and care system of Greater Manchester. Our work is directly informed by the needs of both this system and the local population. Our over-arching goal is to improve the health of the GM population and the quality and sustainability of the health and social care they receive. We will achieve this by co-producing excellent research in areas prioritised by the system and by enhancing its impact through supported implementation into policy and practice.
The successful applicant will work with Prof Niels Peek (Line Manager) as well as other members of the Digital Health Research Theme and will be based in the Division of Informatics, Imaging and Data Science in the Faculty of Biology, Medicine and Health. This is a full-time post and the post-holder will be office-based at the University of Manchester campus on Oxford Road.
Candidates will need a PhD in statistics, computer science, epidemiology or related discipline; experience in manipulating and analysing electronic health record data; significant statistical modelling and programming experience and experience in researching complex digital interventions in the NHS.
