lowongan research associate, silah ditengok.
Senior Research Associate or Research Associate in Medical Statistics
Mathematics & Statistics
Salary: £25,251 to £35,938
Closing Date: Monday 15 October 2012
Interview Date: Wednesday 07 November 2012
This research position arises as part of the Roche Postdoc Fellowship Programme, and is funded for two years in the first instance. The problem to be addressed is that of finding better, faster and cheaper ways to conduct Multiple Ascending Dose (MAD) trials using Bayesian adaptive designs in combination with other emerging approaches to clinical studies. This research will bring together the long-standing expertise in clinical trial design at Lancaster University and the Roche experience (in the department of Biostatistics and Clinical Pharmacology) in the conduct of MAD trials in early drug development. The collaboration is expected to lead to significant improvements in the way that early clinical development is performed, leading to faster and more efficient identification of beneficial medical treatments. The project will involve the conventional analysis of data on three or four recently completed MAD studies, followed by the development of novel approaches and their evaluation via simulation.
You should have completed a PhD in statistics no more than 5 years prior to appointment and must have experience of statistical programming using software such as SAS and R. Experience in statistics methods for clinical trials, Bayesian statistics and trial simulations are desirable, but training on these aspects of the job can be provided.
Starting date: 1 January 2013 or as soon as possible thereafter.
