Job summary

We are seeking a talented epidemiologist or quantitative public health researcher who is familiar with the analysis and interpretation of population-based studies. You will be part of a multi-disciplinary research group and you will have the opportunity to develop expertise through collaboration with neuroepidemiologists, public health and primary care academics. For this specific project our team at Imperial College will collaborate with neuroepidemiologists based at University College of London and the University of Manitoba in Canada.

The Research Assistant post is funded by the UK MS Society to test the performance of commonly used vascular risk calculators in people with multiple sclerosis (PwMS) as compared with people without multiple sclerosis, and to recalibrate the vascular risk scores to improve performance. This project will both improve our understanding of vascular risk in PwMS, and performance of vascular risk prediction calculators in MS. The project will ultimately lead to guideline development for the management of vascular risk in PwMS as tools to impact disability progression.
