An exciting opportunity has arisen for a research post as part of a National Institute for Health and Care Research (NIHR) funded project – Public values, Universal Basic Income and health.

The Yunus Centre for Social Business & Health was founded in 2010 and is named in honour of Professor Muhammad Yunus, winner of the Nobel Peace Prize for his efforts to advance social and economic opportunities of the poor through work on microcredit. There are 19 academic and research staff and 14 PhD students based in the Centre, 7 Centre members based in Glasgow Caledonian University’s Schools and a further 9 PhD students co-supervised. Our research cuts across the three main societal challenges listed in Glasgow Caledonian’s University’s Research strategy: inclusive societies, healthy lives and sustainable environments.  Focusing on social innovation, health, wellbeing and inequalities, we aim to transform the lives of communities through pioneering research in the following areas:

  • Social economy
  • Economics of health and wellbeing
  • Community development, citizenship and participation

We are looking to appoint a researcher on the ‘Public values, Universal Basic Income and health’ NIHR project. The aim of this mixed-methods project is to develop and test methods to elicit public values for Universal Basic Income and comparator policies in relation to their impact on population health and health inequalities. Methodologically the project combines stated preference questions (e.g. Contingent Valuation, Discrete Choice Experiments), focus groups and qualitative interviews. The team includes experts on these methodologies from across three universities: Glasgow Caledonian University, University of Aberdeen and Newcastle University.

The successful candidate will be responsible for literature searches and stakeholder discussions to identify and describe basic income and comparator policies, developing policy scenarios for valuation via stated preference questions, contributing to the design of stated preference questions to elicit public values, collecting data via focus groups, stated preference questions and qualitative interviews, and analysing data.  

We are looking for a candidate with experience of collecting and analysing primary data via qualitative interviews.  Candidates with relevant interests in health economics, economics, social science, social policy and public health are encouraged. Candidates should have excellent interpersonal, communication and project management skills and work well in a team environment. Ideally candidiates would have experience of using stated preference questions, a track record of publications and be proficient in use of qualitative (e.g. NVivo) and/or quantitative software packages (e.g. Stata, R) but this is not essential and training will be provided.
