Location: Liverpool, UK
Contract type: Permanent / Full Time
Closing date: Fri, Sep 30, 2022
This leadership role is for a highly experienced scientist in evidence synthesis who will lead the further development of evidence synthesis, as part of the Global Health Trials and Synthesis Unit, and across the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine and its partners.
The Department of Clinical Sciences is a global leader in evidence synthesis providing an excellent platform for translational research from concept through discovery and clinical trials to evidence synthesis, teaching, policy change and eventual health impact.
Why join the department of clinical Sciences in this leadership post?
The post arises with the retirement of the Director of the Evidence Synthesis in Global Health Centre. It provides a great opportunity for an academic with experience in the area to develop and shape their own portfolio of methods, reviews and collaborative links with researchers and policy personnel. There is an existing infrastructure, with high quality and experienced grant managers, search specialists, a statistician, and post-master staff, and has funds and programmes of work running to April 2024.
The Cochrane Infectious Diseases Group enabled pivotal reviews that led the evidence-base underpinning impregnated mosquito nets, artemisinin-based combination treatments, and a change in the formulation or oral rehydration salt solution. The work has been conducted as part of global collaboration within Cochrane and our own emerging evidence ecosystem.
