GRADE 7 RESEARCHER IN HEALTH ECONOMICS
Closing date: 12pm on Wednesday 20 December 2023
OXFORD POPULATION HEALTH (NUFFIELD DEPARTMENT OF POPULATION HEALTH) OLD ROAD CAMPUS, HEADINGTON, OXFORD
The Nuffield Department of Population Health (NDPH) contains world renowned population health research groups and provides an excellent environment for multi-disciplinary research and teaching. Based within NDPH, the Health Economics Research Centre (HERC) is a well-established group involved in a wide range of methodological and applied research projects, both national and international. This post provides the opportunity to conduct health economic research on a wide range of large data sets collected as part of clinical trials, registries and administrative databases.
We are seeking for a researcher to join the existing HERC group. You will be working on quantifying and explaining disparities in infection incidence and outcomes, as well as modelling the potential health-economic impact of interventions aimed at reducing these disparities. The researcher will mainly work on the BALANCE and HPRU project. BALANCE is a project estimating the health economic burden of AMR in pediatric and adult populations in both low-, middle-, and high-income countries. This large prospective study collects socio-economic, demographic, epidemiological, clinical, and microbiological data from hospitalized patients from various low-, middle-, and high-income countries.
Through the HPRU project the researcher will work on various datasets from the UK to evaluate which groups are at most risk of infection and worse infection-related outcomes, and exploring which interventions could reduce potential disparities.
To be considered you will hold a relevant Master’s degree in health-economics or a related quantitative subject. You will also have substantial relevant work or research experience. Strong data analysis skills, especially in statistics/econometrics are essential for this post. Experience with mediation and decomposition analyses as well as a relevant PhD (or close to completion) would be desirable.
The post is full time (part time considered) and fixed term for 2 years in the first instance.
You will be required to upload a CV and a cover letter as part of your online application. The cover letter should clearly describe how you meet each of the selection criteria listed in the job description.
