Sim Julius

I initially studied English at the University of Durham, after which I gained an MSc (with distinction) in Sociology at South Bank Polytechnic, an MSc (with distinction) in Statistics at Sheffield Hallam University, and a PhD in Philosophy, supervised by David McNaughton, at Keele University.

Before coming to Keele in 1997, I had a brief but successful career with Pizza Express and a longer, but notably less successful, career in the National Health Service, after which I worked at Coventry University as a lecturer in social and health research.

I am a Chartered Statistician and Fellow of the Royal Statistical Society.

My principal interests are in methodology (particularly in the context of clinical trials and mixed methods research), applied ethics, and the sociology of chronic illness. I work in the Research Institute for Primary Care and Health Sciences and the Research Institute for Applied Clinical Sciences.

I was deputy chair on Sub-Panel 3 of the 2014 Research Excellence Framework, having previously been Chair of Sub-Panel 12 of the 2008 Research Assessment Exercise, and have served on the East Midlands committee of the NIHR Research for Patient Benefit funding scheme. Currently, I sit on the funding committee for the Research for Patient and Public Benefit scheme (Health and Social Care Wales). I am a statistical advisor for the Journal of Psychosomatic Obstetrics and Gynaecology, an associate editor (and previous editor-in-chief) of Physiotherapy Theory and Practice, and a member of the advisory board of Physiotherapy Canada.

I am currently the Director of the Keele hub of the NIHR Research Design Service (West Midlands) and Director of Postgraduate Taught Programmes in the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences.
