Job description

We are seeking an excellent researcher keen to help improve the efficiency of delivering health services for stroke patients and contribute to methodological development of efficiency analysis. The post holder will join a multi-disciplinary team on the NIHR funded programme, ‘Improving the lives of stroke survivors with data’. 

The programme aims to improve the lives of stroke survivors by improved use of data, and is strongly multi-disciplinary, including collaboration with statisticians, epidemiologists, social scientists, health economists, policy makers, and stroke survivors and their carers. We aim to improve patient care by allowing effective planning of services, personalised care, and reducing inequalities in access to care and outcomes after stroke. The post holder will have expertise in health economics and lead and contribute to these aspects in the Programme.

The post holder will be excited about the contribution and challenges of using and improving routine data to expand our understanding of health service use, cost and health outcomes.  This research will focus on the recovery journey over time from acute stroke, including a range of formal and informal care, with a view to the impact of multi-morbidity.  The research is embedded within our local population in South London, but with a view to national and international implications.

The candidate will handle large data sets proficiently, provide considered analyses to multi-disciplinary audiences on time, write clearly, and have excellent experience of health service use data.

We are keen to support someone through many of the excellent career development opportunities here at KCL.

King’s is committed to fostering an environment of equality, diversity and inclusion.

This post will be offered on an a fixed-term contract until 28/2/2025

This is a full-time post - 100% full time equivalent

Key responsibilities

  • Develop analysis plans and analyse 15 years of register data linking use of informal care to outcomes to identify efficient combinations of care
  • Develop new estimates of the cost of stroke care following the change from ICD10 to IDC11 coding of stroke in conjunction with project statisticians
  • Develop new approaches to assessing optimal care packages across secondary, primary, social and home-based care.
  • Support the writing, pre-testing, piloting and analysis of new survey questions on informal care costs for the South London Stroke Register
  • Support the analysis and interpretation of qualitative interviews on informal care received by stroke survivors
  • Provide regular verbal and written reports on progress to interdisciplinary audiences
  • Give conference presentations and write academic papers
  • As a research post, there are no formalised teaching requirements, although there are occasional opportunities to become involved in the Departmental teaching programmes (e.g. our MSc).
  • Support the development of research proposals as directed by line manager
  • Ensure the success of a multidisciplinary research programme, contributing and leading the conduct of all health economics aspects

The above list of responsibilities may not be exhaustive, and the post holder will be required to undertake such tasks and responsibilities as may reasonably be expected within the scope and grading of the post.
