Senior Research Fellow in Health Economics (79182-127)

University of Warwick - Warwick Medical School, Clinical Trials Unit

Following considerable success in the award of new research funding in the area of health economics, we are seeking to appoint to a new position at Senior Research Fellow grade. You will join the Warwick Clinical Trials Unit (WCTU), Warwick Medical School, and will contribute to the development of a portfolio of new trial-based and modelling-based economic evaluations.

This will include a trial-based economic evaluation of inducing labour at 39 weeks’ gestation to prevent shoulder dystocia and birth injury in pregnant women with predicted macrosomia, a feasibility study of early positive approaches to support for families of young children with intellectual disability, and the development of a UK evidence based pathway for the management of chronic constipation in adults.

You will be encouraged to participate more broadly in the WCTU’s portfolio of health economics research and teaching activities. You will also be strongly encouraged to develop or integrate novel methodological research into the work programme. Training will be provided to develop skills to undertake high quality applied and methodological research across a number of different study designs.

You will have a PhD in health economics or related field coupled with a track record of producing high quality health economics research relevant to the health sciences, as evidenced from publications in high-impact journals.

This post is also being advertised as a Research Fellow, with one appointment to be made.

Informal enquiries are welcome and should initially be directed to Professor Stavros Petrou, or 0044 2476 151124 or Professor James Mason, or 0044 2476 151853.
