This NIHR Fellowship provides an exciting opportunity for a talented graduate to start a career in health research, undergoing two years of research training in the application of statistical methods to the design and conduct of clinical research and the analysis of the resulting data.

The fellow will develop their knowledge and skills by attending formal postgraduate level training, and by making an important contribution to the work of their supervisors' research groups.

This fellow will be based within the Clinical Trials and Evaluation Unit, Bristol Medical School, University of Bristol. The unit has strong links with the Bristol Centre for Surgical Research and the MRC-funded Conduct-II Hub for Trials Methodology Research.

The fellow will receive advanced training in clinical trial design and medical statistics and will undertake projects, drawn primarily from the research portfolio of surgical trials. It is envisaged that projects will be focussed around the design, implementation and analysis a study-within-a-trial (SWAT). Involvement in this project, from design through to completion, will allow the Fellow to put into practice the theory and methods learnt through formal training. The Fellow will also have the opportunity to contribute to the analysis and reporting of other studies managed by the Trials unit.

Towards the end of the Fellowship the Fellow will be encouraged to apply for a doctoral research fellowship and will be given support in the writing of the application and in preparation for any interview.
