We are looking for a highly motivated statistician with leadership skills or potential to join the Pragmatic Clinical Trials Unit (PCTU). The post will involve taking responsibility for all statistical aspects of major trials and other studies contributing to design and oversight of analysis, including liaising with other chief investigators and other researchers within and outside the Centre for Primary Care and Public Health as required. You would also be expected to undertake a small amount of advisory work under the auspices of the Research Design Service London as required and do some teaching.

The post requires an ability to liaise with staff at all levels, undertake specific leadership roles related to the running and development of the unit, line manage junior staff and make significant contributions to the field of pragmatic clinical trials both nationally and internationally. It is essential that the post-holder can work independently and supervise, support and develop junior staff.

The Pragmatic Clinical Trials Unit leads and supports clinical trials in which the primary question of interest relates to intervention effectiveness: whether an intervention works under real-life conditions. It currently leads or supports 38 pragmatic trials or other well-designed studies, including pilot and feasibility studies. The unit additionally conducts methodological research particularly related to cluster randomised trials, pilot and feasibility studies, innovative trial design and good practice in the design, conduct and analysis of pragmatic trials.
