The post-holder will be required to work on research programmes funded through a wide range of organisations including the UK Research Councils, the National Institute of Health Research, the Health Foundation and a number of charitable trusts and private corporations.
The successful candidate must hold a PhD in health economics or a related discipline. They will have experience of: developing econometric models, working with large databases, and conducting health economic evaluations including analyses of cost and outcome data alongside trials and evaluations. They candidate will have excellent knowledge of statistical packages commonly used in econometrics and economic studies (e.g., STATA, R).
The post is an exciting opportunity for an experienced researcher to contribute to an expanding portfolio of policy relevant research in a dynamic and growing team of academic staff committed to the evaluation of healthcare quality and outcomes.
The post is being made available to internal candidates only in support of our commitment to developing staff by providing opportunities for internal movement and promotion. Therefore we actively encourage applications from all staff across the University with the relevant skills and experience.
