University of Oxford
Following considerable success in the award of new research funding in the area of health economics, we are seeking to appoint to three new positions as Research Fellows. You will join an expanding group of health economics researchers based at the University of Oxford’s Nuffield Department of Primary Care Health Sciences (NDPCHS).
Post one (BZ23013) will involve working with mathematical modellers on a portfolio of economic evaluations of interventions targeted at infectious diseases in England.
Post two (BZ23014) will focus on the delivery of economic evaluations in the orthopaedic, lung disease and sleep disorder contexts, funded by the UK National Institute of Health and Care Research.
Post three (BZ23015) will focus on the delivery of economic evaluations in the maternal and child health contexts, funded by the UK National Institute of Health and Care Research.
For all three posts, you will be encouraged to train further and develop skills to undertake high quality empirical and methodological research in health economics. There will also be opportunities to participate more broadly in the NDPCHS’s portfolio of health economics research and teaching activities.
You will have a DPhil/PhD in health economics or one of its cognate disciplines (or be close to submitting your thesis), or have equivalent experience. A good understanding of health economic evaluation concepts and methods and experience of using statistical software (e.g. STATA, R or SAS) is also essential, coupled with the ability to produce high quality research relevant to the health sciences.
You will be based in the Radcliffe Primary Care Building, Nuffield Department of Primary Care Health Sciences, Woodstock Road, Oxford, OX2 6GG as your normal place of work, but there will be the opportunity for occasional remote working.
All three positions are fixed term until 30 April 2026 in the first instance and offered on a full-time basis. Part-time hours [no less than 0.60 FTE (22.5 hours)] will also be considered.
Please indicate clearly on your supporting statement which post(s) you would like to be considered for by quoting the BZ reference(s).
The closing date for applications is 12 noon on 24th March 2023.
Interviews will be held during the week commencing 3rd April 2023.
Informal enquiries are welcome and should initially be directed to Professor Stavros Petrou,
or (0044) 1865 289503.
