The Clinical Operational Research Unit (CORU) at University College London is seeking to appoint a Research Associate to join a small team of researchers applying operational research to problems in health care.

If appointed, you will contribute to the development of mathematical and simulation models and computer software, lead the collation and analysis of data relevant to individual projects, and prepare research articles for publication.
