Founded in 1845 as Queen’s College Belfast, we became an independent university in 1908. Today, we’re a member of the Russell Group, combining excellence in research and education with a student-centred ethos.

The post will entail the establishment and analysis of the dataset for this age group from all paediatric and transitional diabetes clinics in NI.

This post is available until 28 February 2019 and will be based within the Centre and will involve undertaking both desk-based statistical analyses and meeting clinicians and potentially patients as well. There is likely to be some travelling involved to relevant clinical sites.

Our five core values (Respect, Integrity, Excellence, Ambition, Connected) have been developed by staff and students. They express our shared understanding of what we believe, how we aim to behave and what we aspire to be as an international organisation.

The successful candidate must have:

  • Completed or about to complete relevant undergraduate education.
  • Relevant experience in ophthalmic or other research.
