We have an exciting opportunity for two Postdoctoral Data Scientists to join a Pharmaco- and Device epidemiology research group led by Professor Daniel Prieto-Alhambra at the Botnar Research Centre, NDORMS, University of Oxford. The NDORMS Pharmaco- and Device epidemiology research group is involved in national and international studies to generate insights from routine health (aka ‘real world’) data.

As a Postdoctoral Data Scientist you will support research projects from inception to reporting and dissemination/publication. You will develop analysis plans, protocols, ethical (and similar panel) submissions, standard operating procedures, as required for ongoing and future studies. You will analyse OMOP-mapped real world health data assets and contribute to the programming of R packages and programmes for these analyses. You will also contribute ideas for new research projects, present papers at conferences or public meetings, and you will be involved in teaching and supervision of students.

You will hold a Doctoral (or be near completion) or MSc degree in applied/medical statistics, biostatistics, or health data sciences with BA degree in statistics, mathematics, or a related field. Demonstrable advanced skills and expertise in R programming, advanced skills in programming in Python, SQL, or similar languages and ability to work within multi-disciplinary teams and independently are essential. Experience in pharmacoepidemiology or real world evidence methods (e.g. propensity scores) and experience designing and conducting cohort, case-control, and similar studies are desirable.

This is a full-time fixed-term appointment for 2 years.

The closing date for this position is 12 noon on 17 December 2021. You will be required to upload a CV and supporting statement as part of your online application.
