The University of Exeter Medical School (UEMS) invites applications for an Associate Professor / Professor in Health Technology Assessment and Director of the Peninsula Technology Assessment Group (PenTAG).
As one of nine groups that evaluate the clinical effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of health technologies, PenTAG provides vital and methodologically robust evidence to national policy makers, notably NICE, with a clear pathway to impact. PenTAG is based in the umbrella group Evidence Synthesis & Modelling for Health Improvement (ESMI) within the Institute of Health Research, and has contributed greatly to the expansion and success of the Medical School over the last decade.
We are seeking to appoint an Associate Professor / Professor with a particular interest in health technology assessment. Applicants will not only have the skills and experience to deliver the current multi-million pound contract, maintaining our excellent reputation and high levels of impact, but also to lead the re-bidding process in 2019. We are particularly looking for a candidate with sufficient academic profile and ambition to capitalise on the opportunity PenTAG provides to leverage other academic grants and high profile publications; a strategic objective for UEMS. The new Director will spearhead the creation of an environment in which all members of PenTAG enjoy a balance between providing specific inputs to national policy development and traditional academic opportunities through close collaboration with other groups in the Institute. You are expected to be leading international figures and innovative researchers with a proven track record of research funding, leadership and international quality publications.
