Job in HEDS

It’s a Research Associate/Fellow in Health Economics and Decision Modelling.  In summary:

“You will work within the Health Economics and Decision Science (HEDS) Section of ScHARR, undertaking health economics and decision modelling on a range of applied policy and methodological research projects. This work is funded through the Department of Health’s Policy Research Unit in Economic Evaluation of Health Care Interventions (EEPRU) (www.eepru.org.uk). 
Specific approaches used, as part of these projects, include decision-analytic modelling (e.g. Markov and discrete event simulations), econometrics and policy analysis. You will work with senior staff to design evaluations, develop methodological work, undertake cost-effectiveness analyses and disseminate findings in peer-reviewed journals. You will be encouraged to develop your own methodological research interests that are complementary to those within HEDS and contribute to Masters-level teaching and supervision. 
You should have a Master’s degree or equivalent in a numerate subject, for example, mathematics, operational research, statistics or economics. A PhD in a related subject is essential for appointments at Research Fellow level and desirable for Research Associate level.”

The closing date is 15th September 2016.  Further details can be found here.
