Research Associate In Health Economics

University College London - Department of Applied Health Research, Institute of Epidemiology & Health Care

The salary range will be Grade 6B: £30,316 -£31,967 per annum, or Grade 7: £34,635 -£41,864 per annum, inclusive of London Allowance.

This post will involve working on the Rapid Service Evaluation Team. The main duties of the successful applicant will be to undertake rapid economic evaluations of health and care service innovations.

The project will inform change in health and social care services and so excellent attention to detail and professionalism is required. Successful applicants are expected to have strong quantitative skills and experience and knowledge of health economics methods. Research interests in any area of health economics are encouraged, but given the duties of the post, candidates will require skills and expertise in undertaking economic evaluations of service innovations in health care.

Key to the success of this project is that it is undertaken in close collaboration with other researchers in the RSET, who come from a range of academic disciplines and backgrounds. Working on the RSET will also require working with NHS staff and other organisations, including the NT who are a close collaborator. The successful applicant will therefore be expected to communicate and work effectively with other researchers and collaborators from a range of health and social care disciplines.

Travel to meetings at NHS and other sites throughout the UK is expected, and there may be a requirement to spend some time working at the NT offices near to UCL. Occasionally this activity will necessarily take place outside normal working hours. Some aspects of the project may require necessitating criminal record checks.

Dissemination is a key activity of the RSET and the postholder will be expected to participate in dissemination activities. This will include writing peer-reviewed academic publications, presenting research findings locally, nationally and internationally, producing reports, and contributing to dissemination via social media.

The successful candidate is expected to have strong quantitative skills and experience and knowledge of health economics methods. Research interests in any area of health economics are encouraged, but given the duties of the post, candidates will require skills and expertise in undertaking economic evaluations of service innovations in health care. Candidates will require a PhD degree in health economics or equivalent research experience.

Please note: Appointment at Grade 7 is dependent upon having been awarded a PhD; if this is not the case, initial appointment will be at research assistant Grade 6B (Salary £30,316 - £31,967 per annum, including London Allowance) with payment at Grade 7 being backdated to the date of final submission of the PhD thesis (including corrections)
