Centre for Reviews and Dissemination
CRD is an academic research department (https://www.york.ac.uk/crd) that specialises in and is at the forefront of evidence synthesis and health technology assessment. Our systematic reviews and other evidence synthesis projects span a broad range of health and public health areas to provide best evidence to inform policy and practice decisions, and are underpinned by a programme of methodological development and commitment to knowledge exchange.
CRD is a friendly and supportive workplace that is part of a wider health and social care research community within the University of York. We support staff training and career development and embrace hybrid and flexible working patterns, enabling staff to work partly remotely (within the UK) according to project needs and their preferences. We value diversity, and are committed to equality of opportunity and fostering an inclusive culture where we can all be ourselves.

Following a top ten position in REF21 and award of a new NIHR Evidence Synthesis Group (ESG), we are seeking an experienced health economist to join our team. The person appointed will work mainly on health technology assessment (HTA) projects commissioned under our NIHR Technology Assessment Reviews (TAR) programme. This work informs National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) decisions about which new drugs and technologies are approved for use in the NHS. They will also contribute to ESG and other evidence synthesis projects more broadly across CRD research programmes and will be encouraged to develop their own research interests.
