Summary: We are seeking to appoint an Econometrician at either Research Associate (Grade 7) or Research Fellow (Grade 8) level. The post is within the Health Economics and Decision Science (HEDS) section of the School of Health and Related Research (ScHARR). You will be managed by Dr Monica Hernandez. You will work as a specialist in the econometrics of health, supporting a range of projects that each aim to develop and apply new and existing econometric methods to a range of health economic and public health topics. You will be responsible for contributing to this programme of methodological and applied work, developing, testing, refining and applying a range of microeconometric techniques. 

A key project you will be involved in involves modelling spatial and temporal variations in alcohol consumption typologies using non-randomised data, but other applications include modelling health state utility values and joint modelling of wellbeing and utility measures. You will be actively encouraged to develop your own methodological interests and to provide specialist support to public health analysts, health economists and decision modellers across ScHARR. This is an opportunity for a very technical applicant to work on high impact studies in the area of health economics. We welcome applications from those currently involved in other areas of econometrics and will provide training to those coming from outside the health field. Ideally you will hold PhD in microeconometrics or have similar experience. 

We build teams of people from different heritages and lifestyles from across the world, whose talent and contributions complement each other to greatest effect. We believe diversity in all its forms delivers greater impact through research, teaching and student experience. This post is fixed term for 3 years working full time.
