Closing date: 17 September 2018
We are seeking to appoint a Research Associate (G7) in Health Economics and Statistics. The post is within the Health Economics and Decision Science (HEDS) section of the School of Health and Related Research (ScHARR).
You will work as a specialist in health economics and statistics and must have relevant qualifications and/or experience in both areas. You will conduct research on methods for undertaking economic evaluation alongside clinical studies and work on existing studies with colleagues in HEDS to make existing approaches more efficient, identify new areas of investigation and develop your own research program in this area at the interface of health economics and statistics. You will also conduct cost effectiveness analyses for a number of funded projects, typically as part of randomised clinical trials. Depending on experience in this area we will offer on the job training from senior HEDS staff and access to relevant aspects of our taught Masters courses. Finally, you will provide specialist advice and support in the area of statistics, and potentially health economics (depending on experience at the time of appointment), to researchers and research teams who are drawing together funding applications.
This position offers an opportunity for a technically competent applicant with a strong background in or a closely related subject, to develop skills in applied economic evaluation whilst also developing research interests in related methods work. A PhD with a strong element of both statistics and health economics is essential for this post.
The post is funded from research grants held by HEDS staff and the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) funded Research Design Service Yorkshire and the Humber (RDS YH).
