Lecturer/ Senior Lecturer in Health Economic Modelling

 

We wish to appoint a Lecturer or Senior Lecturer (depending on experience) in Health Economic Modelling. The successful candidate will join the Health Economics at Bristol (HEB) research group (www.bristol.ac.uk/health-economics) within the School of Social and Community Medicine at the University of Bristol. The appointment is part of a strategic plan to further strengthen the School's research excellence in health economics and health technology assessment over the next 5 years.

 

Candidates are sought with outstanding decision analytical modelling skills, ideally applied within a health economics context. You will have a strong track record in independent research and will be expected to take a leading role on health technology assessment grant applications using cost-effectiveness modelling. The work will be multi-disciplinary and conducted alongside evidence syntheses, RCTs and observational study designs. There will be opportunities to develop your own methodological research. You will contribute to and further develop the School's CPD and postgraduate teaching.

 

The School of Social and Community Medicine is a leading centre for research and teaching in population health sciences, with staff coming from a wide range of academic disciplines and clinical specialties. The HEB research group has established a large portfolio of NIHR and MRC funded research projects. The HEB team has grown rapidly in the last 10 years and we now have more than 20 researchers and PhD students.

 

The post holder is expected to work closely with other evidence synthesis methodologists in the Centre for Research Synthesis and Decision Analysis within the School, including the Bristol Appraisal and Review of Research (BARR) group (http://www.bristol.ac.uk/social-community-medicine/research/groups/barr/) and the Multi-parameter evidence synthesis (MPES) research group. There are extensive opportunities for multi-disciplinary collaboration with other research groups including the Centre for Academic Primary Care (a founding member of the NIHR School for Primary Care Research), the NIHR School for Public Health Research, Bristol Centre for Surgical Research, the Centre for Academic Mental Health, the MRC ConDuCT II hub for trials methodology research and the NIHR Biomedical Research Centre.
