st: FW: Support and training manager (Stats software)
I am copying this from the UK-based allstat
list, as it may interest proficient Stata users in
or near the UK who are not members of Allstat.
Naturally, if you are interested in this job,
please follow it up privately, and _not_ to the list
and _not_ to me, as I have nothing to do with this.

SUPPORT AND TRAINING MANAGER (STATISTICS SOFTWARE)
The National Centre for Social Research (NatCen) is Britainís largest
independent research organisation with approx. 240 staff and an
research income of over £25m.
We are looking to recruit a graduate with significant experience in
more statistical software packages to act as Support and Training
to the NatCen quantitative research group. Currently most of NatCenís
researchers (of which there are about 80) analyse data in SPSS and the
postholder would be expected to offer advice and support to current
and to train new users. However, we are planning to make STATA the
analysis package, and a key role of the postholder would be to train
research staff in the use of STATA through an series of short courses,
to offer ongoing advice and support. The postholder will be expected
promote the use of STATA within NatCen and to define and document good
practice and quality control procedures.
Candidates will need to demonstrate good knowledge of at least one
statistics package. A degree in Statistics or a closely related
would be an advantage but is not essential. Previous teaching
and/or helpline or support experience would be an advantage.
The post is based in NatCenís head office in London EC1. The
candidate will join a team of researchers and statisticians in the
Methods Unit. The Unit provides advice and support to the quantitative
research teams - mainly on design and analysis issues - as well as
carrying out original methodological research, data analysis and
Initial salary is dependent on experience but is likely to be in the
£23-£30K depending on experience. We also offer generous holiday
entitlement, a pension scheme and every other Friday off.
