Do you want to join a large, enthusiastic team of statisticians who help to save and improve lives through analysis and research? The NHS Blood and Transplant (NHSBT) Clinical Trials Unit has a vacancy for a Statistician to join the team and contribute across a diverse range of trials. We are UKCRC registered and conduct CTIMPs, non-CTIMPs, medical device trials and international trials across a broad clinical scope.

NHSBT is a Special Health Authority within the NHS, responsible for optimising the supply of blood, organs, plasma and tissues and raising the quality, effectiveness and efficiency of blood and transplant services. A two-year vacancy has arisen for a Statistician in the Statistics and Clinical Studies team, tenable at NHSBT's offices in Bristol (preferred), Cambridge or Oxford.

The Statistics and Clinical Studies team are a large, supportive team, with good development opportunities. We are engaged in novel design and analysis of clinical trials and other studies in organ and tissue donation and transplantation, blood donation and transfusion medicine.

This post is an exciting opportunity for someone with a degree or post-graduate qualification in statistics to be involved in extremely rewarding work in our Clinical Trials Unit. In this role you will be involved in study design, and the analysis and reporting of several clinical trials, with support from the team. The post will involve collaborative work with CTU colleagues, clinicians and others working in organ transplantation, blood donation and haematology, and so the individual appointed will have excellent communication skills. Previous experience of clinical trials is required as is the ability to work effectively to deadlines, both individually and as part of a team.

The normal working hours for this role are 37.5 hours/week, core office hours (this can be discussed at interview).
