We are seeking to appoint a Research Associate to join the SIPHER (Systems science in Public Health and Health Economics Research) consortium. Preventing ill health related to the “social determinants of health” requires well-coordinated policies across many sectors. SIPHER will deliver novel evidence of the costs and benefits of the complex, interlinked and long-term consequences of policy decisions. For further details of SIPHER, see https://sipher.ac.uk/. The Research Associate will be part of Work strand 6 (WS6) of the SIPHER consortium. 

This work strand concerns social valuations of cross-sectoral outcomes and equity implications, to provide insight into how people value different policy outcomes (e.g. increased income versus improved health) and different distributions of outcomes(increased total income versus increased income inequality). The work will include: designing discussion group sessions with members of the public and policy makers, preparing research ethics applications, leading discussion group sessions, qualitative analysis of the transcripts, helping to disseminate research findings and helping to prepare funding applications
