As a member of the CRSU, the Research Associate will support senior team members in providing methodological advice and support, primarily in network meta-analysis and associated methodologies (including the broader implementation of evidence synthesis in the context of economic evaluations), and developing and delivering bespoke training courses.

ii. Assessment of relative cost-effectiveness of different classes of drugs for Parkinson’s disease (PD MED) – this is an economic evaluation of long-term follow up trial data and data from Hospital Episode Statistics. The Research Associate will contribute to developing and undertaking appropriate analyses to determine cost-effectiveness.
