Senior Research Associate Opportunities in Health Economics and Preference-Based Outcomes Research
Applications are invited for enthusiastic and talented Senior Research Associates to work with the Health Economics Group UEA and the NIHR Applied Research Collaboration (ARC) East of England as part of its Health Economics and Prioritisation Research Theme.
Full time, fixed-term for 2 years, £33,797 to £40,322 per annum. This post can be considered for flexible-working arrangements
Part-time up to 0.6fte, fixed-term for 1 year, £33,797 to £40,322 per annum, pro rata. This post can be considered for flexible-working arrangements
The successful applicants will take a key role in developing and delivering applied economics input to health, social care and public health research across the East of England. You will contribute to the delivery of various ARC-related projects, including a project funded through an NIHR Public Health Grant investigating the feasibility of asset-based walking programs to address health inequalities, which incorporates a discrete choice preference study. You will actively engage with health and social care providers to develop their research capacity, and will pursue opportunities to secure and deliver related research contracts. You will contribute to providing research training and development for early career researchers, research students and health care professionals.
The successful candidates will hold, or be close to completing, a relevant postgraduate degree (preferably a Masters level degree with a substantial health economics component and/or a PhD) and will have research experience proportionate to the level of post applied for. Previous experience in preference-based outcomes research or a willingness to develop this expertise would be an advantage.
The full time post will primarily be based at the Health Economics Group at UEA in Norwich but will spend (at least) one day per week based with the ARC core research and administration team in Cambridge.
The role involves providing health economics advice and collaborating with multidisciplinary teams of researchers, clinicians and representatives from other universities and health and care organisations across the ARC East of England, so some travel within the region is likely to be required.
Seeking to promote an equitable representation of men and women among its staff, the School encourages applications from women and those from minority ethnic groups. Appointment will be made on merit.
Closing date: 27 February 2020
