Applications are invited for a Senior Health Economist, a new post created to grow health economics at Nottingham
The role holder will be accountable to the Professor of Health Economics, Professor Marilyn James, and will work with colleagues across the School of Medicine (SoM) and with external research partners. Experience in health economics within clinical trials is essential and experience in health economic modelling desirable.
This is an exciting opportunity to contribute to the growth of health economics at Nottingham.
NCTU’s mission is to conduct high quality, high impact multicentre trials to improve health and well-being. NCTU has a broad portfolio of studies to evaluate drugs, devices and complex interventions and design and conduct methodological research in trials. Results from our research is published in high impact journals such as the New England Journal of Medicine and the Lancet.
The applicant will have a PhD in health economics. The role holder will lead on some of the existing portfolio in health economics, in multiple health areas including orthopaedics, paediatrics, and mental health. Studies are mainly funded by NIHR, including Programme Grants for Applied Research, Health Technology Assessment and Efficacy and Mechanisms Evaluation research programmes. The role holder will be expected to apply for funded research as a co-applicant and to mentor junior staff in the unit.
Some of the current NIHR-funded projects include: (1) CAUTI, Catheter Against Urinary Tract Infection Trial, a randomised trial of antimicrobial-impregnated urinary catheters for long-term indwelling urinary catheter users; (2) POINT, A multi-centre randomised trial of surgery versus non-surgical splint treatment for proximal phalanx shaft finger fractures in adults; (3) ROWTATE, Multicentre Research Programme to Enhance Return to Work after Trauma.
The post will enable career development and the chance to develop clear management and analytical skills to improve the role holders’ career. The candidates must have the ability to communicate well with researchers who have little or no knowledge of health economics.
The post will be offered on a full time or part-time (minimum 29h per week), fixed-term contract for a period of 24 months with possibility of extension.
