A 50:50 split is envisaged between the PsyMaptic-A project and the BSG work.

Candidates should hold or be close to submitting a PhD (or equivalent qualification) in Statistics/ Medical Statistics. It is essential that the successful candidate has experience of working as a statistician in a health research environment, previous involvement in clinical trials and/ or observational studies in health research and strong organisational and communication skills.
