This is an exciting opportunity for a researcher with a PhD in statistics, biostatistics or a related quantitative subject to join the research team at the national MRC-PHE Centre for Environment and Health (http://www.environment-health.ac.uk/). The post is based within the Department of Epidemiology and Biostatistics and will be line managed by Dr Marta Blangiardo.
The post holder will work on the MRC methodology funded grant: “A general framework to adjust for missing confounders in observational studies” to develop a Bayesian statistical approach to integrate different sources of data and to use the propensity score for missing data imputation in the context of epidemiological observational studies. This is a collaborative project between Imperial College, LSHTM and Cambridge MRC-BSU.
You should have a thorough working knowledge of Bayesian modelling and some experience of working with spatial statistics and of analysing epidemiological/biomedical data.
