Researcher in Health Economics

Nuffield Department of Primary Care Health Sciences, Radcliffe Observatory Quarter, Woodstock Road, Oxford, OX2 6GG

Grade 7: £32,817 to £40,322 per annum

Following considerable success in the award of new research funding in the area of health economics, we are seeking to appoint to a new Researcher. You will join a rapidly expanding group of health economics researchers based at the University of Oxford’s Nuffield Department of Primary Care Health Sciences (NDPCHS).

You will primarily focus on two recently funded programmes of work. The first, funded by the Australian Government’s Medical Research Future Fund, will involve close working with Australian and British researchers on the development of tools to value health change in paediatric populations. . The second programme of work, recently funded by the National Institute for Health Research, will evaluate the cost-effectiveness of current and alternative care pathways for Long COVID.

You will also be expected to disseminate the outputs of your research in the form of reports to the funders and publications in peer-reviewed journals. You will also be encouraged to continue developing skills to undertake high quality applied and methodological research across a number of different study designs. There will also be opportunities to participate more broadly in the Department’s portfolio of health economics research and teaching activities.

You should have, or be close to completion of, a DPhil/PhD in health economics or one of its cognate disciplines, experience of cost-effectiveness modelling techniques, experience of using statistical software (e.g. Stata, R), coupled with the ability to produce high quality health economics research relevant to the health sciences.

You will be based in the Radcliffe Primary Care Building, NDPCHS, Radcliffe Observatory Quarter, Woodstock Road, Oxford, OX2 6GG.
