The analysis is on our own platforms using R/R Studio and will always be varied and often new: for our supported healthdata research projects, for pharmacovigilance, for our support of hospitals quality improvement.  In addition, the Data Analyst/Statistician will support data capture by configuring our systems (currently REDcap and InfoFlex) for new projects. There will also be support in database management (MySQL databases using SQL and SQL stored procedures) and data management (scripting languages such as Python, XML, C#, JSON). This is a fantastic opportunity for someone with demonstrated learning ability to join an organisation with a purpose working at the leading edge of health data.  You will also be exposed to the £5M project work in the curation, transformation and linkage of the IBD datasets required for the Hub with the Cambridge data specialists- a rare opportunity.
