The Institute of Cancer Research, London, is one of the world’s most influential cancer research organisations, with an outstanding record of achievement dating back more than 100 years. We provided the first convincing evidence that DNA damage is the basic cause of cancer, and discovered many of the early chemotherapy drugs. Today, The Institute of Cancer Research (ICR) leads the world at isolating cancer-related genes and discovering new targeted drugs for personalised cancer treatment.

The ICR is ranked as the UK’s leading academic research centre. Our unique partnership with The Royal Marsden and ‘bench-to-bedside’ approach allows us to create and deliver results in a way that other institutions cannot. Together we are rated in the top four cancer centres globally.

The ICR is committed to attracting, developing and retaining the best minds in the world to join us in our mission – to make the discoveries that defeat cancer.

The Institute of Cancer Research, one of the world’s leading cancer research centres, is looking for statisticians to join the Clinical Trials and Statistics Unit (ICR-CTSU) and Prostate Cancer Targeted Therapy Group (PCTTG) / Drug Development Unit (DDU) at its Sutton site in Surrey.

You will be a motivated statistician with an interest in clinical trials and experience in correlative science who enjoys the challenge of working with complex datasets and is looking for opportunities to apply your statistical knowledge across a number of therapeutic areas in oncology. This is a joint post with 3 days/week working on the statistical development, oversight and analysis of a number of multi-centre phase II/III clinical trials at ICR-CTSU, and 2 days/week working on associated translational biomarker research and drug development studies with PCTTG/DDU.

The successful applicant will have a post-graduate qualification in statistics or a first degree in statistics and practical experience in medical statistics, a sound understanding of randomised controlled trials and experience with survival analysis methods and applying statistical methods to real data.  

Good communication skills, including excellent written and spoken English, are essential to liaise with multi-disciplinary team members across multiple studies. You should also be happy to work individually as well as part of a wider team. In addition, working knowledge of statistical software (e.g. Stata, R) is required.

Appointment will be on a fixed term contract for 2 years in the first instance, with the potential for renewal thereafter. We consider all applications on merit and have a strong commitment to enhancing the diversity of our staff.
