The Centre for Reviews and Dissemination (CRD) at the University of York is recruiting a Senior Research Fellow to lead projects, provide advanced statistical guidance and develop methods for use in evidence synthesis.
CRD is a research department (https://www.york.ac.uk/crd) that specialises in evidence synthesis and conducts projects across a wide range of health areas to provide best evidence to inform policy and practice decisions. Our research spans health technology assessment, public health and policy and service delivery and organisation, all underpinned by a programme of methodological development and commitment to knowledge exchange and mobilisation.
Our research provides a fertile ground for methods development with many evidence synthesis projects generating data and research questions requiring methodological advances. The person appointed will be able to draw on CRD’s expertise including expert information specialists, systematic reviewers and early career statisticians, along with support from the departmental leadership team to help develop their own research interests.
CRD is a friendly and supportive department that embraces hybrid and flexible working patterns, enabling staff to work partly remotely (within the UK) according to project needs and their preferences. We are committed to diversity and equality and fostering an inclusive culture where we can all be ourselves. We welcome applications from all suitably qualified candidates and particularly encourage applications from people who identify as being from the Black African and Caribbean Heritage community, Asian or other ethnic background that is underrepresented at the University.
Interview date: Wednesday 17th & Friday 19th November 2021
