Hi all,
We are currently advertising a three year research position at Newcastle University. This would involve working with myself on methods for precision medicine clinical trials as well as working on our growing portfolio of real trials using innovative designs. 
This would suit someone who is interested in developing and applying novel methods for improving clinical trials for patients. The postholder would play an important part in the MRC/NIHR Trials Methodology Research Partnership Stratified Medicine Working group.
For appointment at the Research Associate level, the ideal candidate would have, or be finishing, a PhD in a subject that has statistical methods content (or have equivalent experience in research for candidates without a PhD) and would have some experience in working with real data.
For appointment at the Senior Research Associate level, the ideal candidate would have a good selection of published papers in statistical journals and applied journals together with evidence that they have strong potential to work independently to develop an area of research related to precision medicine trials.
The starting date would be flexible to suit the candidate, although preferably April 2020 or earlier.
