Imperial College Business School has partnered with Bocconi University (Milan, Italy) in a European Joint Action on Cardiovascular Disease and Diabetes (JACARDI). As part of this project, a post-doctoral research position is being created. The successful candidates will be employed by Bocconi University and will be based partly at Bocconi and partly at Imperial College London (balance to be determined as a function of project needs and candidates’ profiles).
Prospective applicants should apply to Bocconi using the link at the bottom of this advert. Applications made directly to Imperial College are not permitted.
JACARDI, the Joint Action on CARdiovascular diseases and DIabetes is a European Joint Action (JA) funded through the European Commission’s EU4Health programme, involving 21 EU countries and 77 partners. Over 4 years, JACARDI aims at reducing the burden of cardiovascular disease (CVD) and diabetes (DM) in EU countries, both at individual and societal level.
The post-holder will join research teams at both Bocconi and Imperial College to lead a critical component of JACARDI, the health and economic evaluation of interventions aimed at preventing and treating cardiovascular disease and diabetes.
While formal employment will be with Bocconi, the appointed candidate will spend a significant proportion of their time in London working with the Centre for Health Economics & Policy Innovation (CHEPI) at Imperial College Business School. Working in London is subject to obtaining an appropriate visa.
Responsibility in the Project: Team member tasked with the following:
Job description: The candidate will be expected to contribute to the work of a multi-disciplinary research team engaged in the development of a microsimulation model of the future health and economic impacts of health policies. This model (Health-GPS) will be employed in the evaluation of interventions designed to prevent and treat cardiovascular disease and diabetes. In particular, the candidate will be expected to help develop and implement into the existing code base of the model (developed in C++) suitable mathematical algorithms that will reflect the epidemiological and economic dynamics associated with interventions that can modify cardiovascular disease and diabetes risk and outcomes. The position will involve close collaboration with a team of researchers based at Imperial College London, which will require the candidate to be based at Imperial College for at least part of the duration of the appointment.
Candidates will be expected to have:
