We are looking for an aspiring early career researcher to join us at one of the UK’s best universities.

The successful candidate will be part of the recently established Centre for Health Economics at Warwick (CHEW) and will work alongside Dr Lazaros Andronis on an exciting new project funded by an NIHR Advanced Fellowship. The project will explore how best to measure and include the value of children and young people’s time in health economic evaluations.

Apart from working on a novel piece of research, the position will offer the successful candidate a first-class opportunity to train, develop and start building their career in health economics. The post holder will work with a multidisciplinary team of collaborators and prominent researchers based at Warwick and other Universities, co-leading different parts of the project. There will also be opportunities to learn and apply a range of qualitative and quantitative methods relevant to health economics and social science research whilst developing valuable research skills, including on survey and questionnaire design, focus groups and stated preference elicitation and analysis.

The successful applicant will be expected to talk about the study and disseminate findings through articles, seminars and presentations and develop and pursue their own ideas for further research on the broader topic.

In addition to enthusiasm and aspirations for a fruitful research career, good candidates will have a good first degree in social or medical sciences and, ideally, will have completed (or approaching completion of) a postgraduate/doctoral degree (MSc/MA, MPhil, PhD) in health economics, economics, or a similar relevant subject.

The post is available at 75% Full Time Equivalent (FTE) for a period of 4 years. However, it is possible for the successful candidate to work full time (100% FTE) by contributing to further funded projects at CHEW. In this case, familiarity with economic evaluation and strong statistical/quantitative skills will be essential.

If you have any questions or would like to have an informal conversation about this vacancy or suitability for the post, please contact Dr Lazaros Andronis: l.andronis@warwick.ac.uk, 02476 574490.

Interviews to be held week commencing 18 October 2021
