We are seeking a quantitative researcher with a background in epidemiology, medical statistics or health services research to join Professor Alastair Hay's Infection Group , based within the Centre for Academic Primary Care (CAPC) at the University of Bristol. The overall aim of the CAPC Infection Group is to improve primary care antimicrobial stewardship and reduce antimicrobial resistance.

We expect the post-holder to play a significant role in the CAPC Infection Group , building on successful collaborations within Bristol Medical School (including the NIHR Health Protection Research Unit (HPRU) in Behavioural Science and Evaluation), other University of Bristol infection researchers, and primary care infection researchers in the NIHR School for Primary Care Research. Funding for this post is provided through a prestigious NIHR Senior Investigator Award held by Professor Alastair Hay and the Research and Evidence team of NHS Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire Clinical Commissioning Group.

The post represents an exciting opportunity for a talented and enthusiastic individual with a promising reputation in epidemiology/ statistics/ health services research to join a thriving group within one of the UK's leading centres for primary care and population research.
