Quantitative researcher in the Health Impacts of Climate Change
Nuffield Department of Primary Care Health Sciences, Radcliffe Observatory Quarter, Woodstock Road, Oxford, OX2 6GG
Grade 7: £32,817 – £40,322 p.a.
The Nuffield Department of Primary Care Health Sciences (NDPCHS) in conjunction with the Oxford Martin School is expanding its team of researchers, data scientists, programmers and statisticians who work with large primary care datasets. This post will be based in the Big Data group of the NDPCHS with a particular focus on understanding the health impacts of climate change in the UK, the likely costs for the NHS, and the use of air conditioning or other cooling practices to reduce the health burden of extreme heat, managing and analysing data arising from different datasets.
The post provides an outstanding opportunity to undertake high impact quantitative work using electronic health data. The post holder will contribute to writing papers and reports for publication and present their work at scientific and other meetings. They will also be strongly encouraged to develop their own research ideas. The Big Data group of the NDPCHS significantly contributes to teaching within the University, in particular as part of the MSc in Evidence-Based Health Care and MSc in EBHC (Medical Statistics). The successful candidate will also therefore have the opportunity to undertake teaching within the University at undergraduate and postgraduate level.
We are seeking to employ an enthusiastic individual with demonstrable experience in data management, quantitative analysis (applied health economics, medical statistics, epidemiology or a related discipline), with experience of working with large, complex datasets and an interest in understanding the impact of climate change on the delivery of health care.
