Senior Research Associate in Health Economics

£33,797 to £40,322 per annum

Applications are invited for a Senior Research Associate to join the Health Economics Group (HEG) in the Norwich Medical School, the NIHR Applied Research Collaboration (ARC) East of England as part of its Health Economics and Prioritisation Research Theme, and the NIHR PHIRST (Public Health Intervention Responsive Studies Team).

This post provides an excellent opportunity to join one of four newly formed UK NIHR PHIRST teams, providing policy-relevant guidance to public health departments across the UK.  You will spend 50% of your time supporting and undertaking economics components of research commissioned as part of one of the PHIRSTs. 

The role also provides a synergistic opportunity to join the NIHR Applied Research Collaboration (ARC) for the East of England and you will spend the other 50% of your time working with the ‘Health Economics and Prioritisation’ Theme of the ARC, which is led from UEA.

The post is ideally suited to an individual with a background in health economics, or similar field with a major quantitative component.  Applicants must have abe familiar with methods of health economic evaluation, decision modelling, outcome valuation/preferences and/or econometrics.  Experience of economic studies in public health would be advantageous.

Many UEA research staff are currently working from home in response to restrictions implemented to help manage the pandemic. However, once the pandemic restrictions ease, the post will require some travel across the East of England. In particular, the postholder will be based one day per week from the ARC East of England offices in Cambridge providing health economic advice to the wider ARC East of England team.

This full-time post is available immediately on a fixed term basis until 30 April 2022. It is anticipated the post may be extended (subject to confirmation of funding being available).

Closing date:  12 April 2021
