CMVM / MGPHS / Usher Institute
Full time, 35h per week
Fixed term available from July 2021 to 31st July 2022
The Centre for Medical Informatics at the Usher Institute within The University of Edinburgh is looking for a Postdoctoral Data Analyst for the National Core Studies team.
The successful candidate will play a key role in establishing a centralised, responsive resource, linking data assets from a diverse range of longitudinal population studies with health, social and environmental records, with harmonised governance for processing and research interrogation. This post will contribute primarily to analysis and linkage of data in the EAVE-II (Early Assessment of Vaccine and anti-viral Effectiveness) dataset to provide insights into disease risks and consequences. The work will inform population health and social policy by providing evidence of the medium-to-long term consequences of COVID-19 infection, and of policies to control the pandemic.
The main focus of this role is to make best use of data linkage opportunities to explore questions relating to the pandemic. The post holder will be required to navigate data permissions for relevant datasets, working closely with data custodians where required. Significant collaboration is expected with analysts working on related research, in Edinburgh and other institutions, based on a “team science” approach. Results will be written up, presented and disseminated quickly in line with national priorities.
Informal enquiries may be directed to Dr Wendy Inglis Humphrey, Research Manager (email@example.com)
