The purpose of this post is to undertake systematic reviews and support review development within
Cochrane Epilepsy and Cochrane Movement Disorders. This will include working with current reviewers to undertake or complete new reviews, or update existing reviews. This work is funded by a
new programme grant entitled ‘Clinical effective treatments for Central Nervous System disorders in the
NHS, with a focus on Epilepsy and Movement Disorders’, from the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR). This grant will fund a multidisciplinary team including systematic reviewers, statisticians, and
clinicians who will work together to deliver the programme of work. The team includes members of the Cochrane Epilepsy Group, the Cochrane Movement Disorders Group, the Liverpool Reviews and Implementation Group (LRiG) and the Department of Biostatistics. A number of epilepsy and movement
disorders reviews will be in methodologically challenging areas such as reviews using individual patient data,
network meta-analysis reviews and prognosis reviews.
Qualified to MSc (or equivalent) in a relevant subject area is essential, and experience of undertaking Cochrane systematic reviews is highly desirable. You will also have quantitative skills including the ability to manipulate and interpret statistical data and information with a good understanding of evidence-based medicine.
