Optical Express has an immediate requirement for a Biostatistician to be based in our offices in Glasgow city centre
The primary goal is to continually improve the quality of care we provide to our patients by meticulously and methodically analysing outcome data. We operate a ‘continuous quality improvement’ model which we accomplish through a number of activities: internal quality control and outcomes analysis, interfacing with leaders in the field of vision correction, and producing insightful and high-quality research.
The Biostatistician has responsibility for providing statistical and analytical expertise across Optical Express, devising statistical analysis plans and performing data analysis within Excel and SAS. The results feed into our world renowned International Medical Advisory Board (IMAB), and assists in developing our clinical governance protocol.
You will also be responsible for communicating the methodologies used and the results in both written and oral formats and you will typically be working on several projects at one time, as a result our output is significantly higher than any other ophthalmic business in the world today and we publish more data than any other business or organisation
The Biostatistician reports to the Clinical Services Director and will work closely with teams across all specialities to ensure any statistical elements of projects are completed to an exceptionally high standard, in a timely fashion and in line with Optical Express expectations.
Ideally we are looking for a degree or equivalent higher qualification in a scientific or mathematical discipline, although a Masters or PhD would be highly advantageous.
This new role represents an outstanding opportunity to fully explore new areas of ophthalmologic research and answer questions that are vital to the field.
Excellent salary, superb working conditions, access to some of the key opinion leaders in the ophthalmic world and the opportunity to contribute to highly valued research are just some of the benefits on offer.
