We conduct high impact multi-disciplinary research. This has been recognised in the Research Excellence Framework, where Oxford was ranked top for the quality of our research, its infrastructure, and the impact we make on the world. We are able to do this because we are well supported by genuinely helpful research infrastructure and have an excellent training programme for clinicians and other scientists.
This inter-disciplinary department is home to clinicians, clinical epidemiologists, medical statisticians, social scientists and psychologists, working collaboratively on programmes to improve health and healthcare. Being a large department means we work hard at being a friendly one and are confident that we succeed. We ensure our department has progressive employment policies that value the careers of all our team and we are proud that we hold an Athena Swan silver award and are working towards gold. We aim to develop the careers of our early and mid-career scientists and to provide opportunities to form productive collaborations and develop high-level content and methodological expertise, which will enable all our team to grow their careers as scientists.
