This post is an excellent opportunity for an experienced quantitative researcher to join a multidisciplinary world-leading academic group, with a track record in the design and evaluation of public health interventions across areas of blood borne viruses (BBVs), sexual health and substance use. The research is both methodological and applied, involves working with professionals from a wide-range of disciplines (epidemiology, health economics, infectious diseases, public health, and statistics, to name a few) and spans activities (including population-based surveys, surveillance initiatives, novel record-linkage studies, and statistical/economic modelling). This post offers a unique opportunity to contribute to the cutting edge development on the delivery and impact of new hepatitis C therapies. The appointment would support the delivery of two large research grants (£2.8million from NIHR and £1.8million from Health Protection Scotland(HPS)). The initiative with HPS is an established collaborative research agreement to inform on the effectiveness of interventions to prevent, diagnose and treat BBVs in Scotland. The post holder would also work on a new and related 5-year NIHR-funded grant called EPIToPe (Evaluating the Population Impact of Hepatitis C Direct Acting Antiviral Treatment as Prevention for People Who Inject Drugs), led by Professors Sharon Hutchinson in Glasgow and Matt Hickman in Bristol. The overall aim of EPIToPe is to generate robust UK empirical evidence on the ‘Treatment as Prevention’ hypothesis (i.e. does scaling up hepatitis C treatment among people who inject drugs reduce prevalence and transmission in this population). The post-holder will liaise with collaborators (Bristol University, Cambridge/MRC Biostatistics Unit, Public Health England and Tayside Clinical Trials Unit), coordinating the collation, and leading on the statistical analysis, of quantitative data on the uptake and impact of hepatitis C testing and treatment. More broadly, the post holder will develop and progress new epidemiological research studies to address research questions in relation to BBV prevention, diagnosis and treatment. The role requires: A PhD (or equivalent) in epidemiology, biostatistics, public health, or related discipline Excellent skills and demonstrable experience in epidemiological study design, implementation and analysis. Highly developed statistical analysis skills, with working experience of large complex datasets and specialised statistical software (e.g. R, STATA). Experience of writing scientific publications in high quality journals. Evidence of the ability to collaborate actively within an institution as well as externally to complete research projects and advance thinking. Evidence of ability to mentor and develop junior researchers. Further details are available by contacting Professor Sharon Hutchinson (0141 273 1949; sharon.hutchinson@gcu.ac.uk). As the University for the Common Good, we are committed to embedding equality and diversity, as well as our values in everything that we do. As such, we welcome applications from all suitably qualified candidates who demonstrate the GCU Values.
