Speeding up the evaluation of prostate cancer therapies: Statistician post available

21 Mar 2018

The Unit's Meta-Analysis Group has been at the forefront of systematic reviews and meta-analysis for more than 20 years, in particular those involving individual participant data (IPD). 

We have an exciting new opportunity for a statistician who will play a key role in an international, collaborative programme to speed up the evaluation of treatments for advanced prostate cancer. This comprises:

  1. Timely systematic reviews and network meta-analyses, to evaluate current therapies;
  2. Identification of early surrogate outcomes for survival, to reduce the duration of future trials;
  3. Development of a repository of IPD from around 45 RCTs and 20,000 men, as a resource for the prostate cancer community.

The successful applicant will be responsible for the management and analysis of IPD from trials collected for the repository.  They will also have the opportunity to make a key contribution to systematic reviews and network meta-analyses, and to the development and implementation of novel methods in real-world settings.

We are looking to recruit a suitably qualified statistician with a solid grounding in randomised controlled trials, and the desire and ability to handle a large repository of trial data with meticulous care.
