Job in HEDS: Research Assistant in Health Economics

The School of Health and Related Research (ScHARR) is looking to recruit someone with an economics or economics-related background for an NIHR Methods Research Fellowship in Health Economics. This Fellowship is aimed at highly talented individuals who are either in their early post-graduate career or returning to the work place after a career break, and who are looking to change the focus of their career.

The Fellowship provides 2 years of dedicated time to undertake methodology training and gain research experience in health economics, econometrics and cost-effectiveness modelling. The Fellowship will focus on the development of cost-effectiveness models in which well-being is the outcome measure.There is increasing policy interest in the potential use of well-being in the economic evaluation of health and social care interventions. The Fellowship will explore this new development.

You will be supervised by Professor John Brazier, who is a leading expert in the measurement and valuation of health and well-being and has published over 100 papers on the subject in peer reviewed journals. You will also be supported by Dr Tessa Peasgood, who has an interest in the measurement and determinants of well-being.
