4) Research Associate - Statistician (Fixed Term)

The MRC Biostatistics Unit is one of Europe's leading biostatistics research institutions. Our focus is to deliver new analytical and computational strategies based on sound statistical principles for the challenging tasks facing biomedicine and public health. The UKCRC Centre for Diet and Activity Research (CEDAR) is a partnership between the University of Cambridge, the University of East Anglia and the MRC. CEDAR studies the factors that influence dietary and physical activity related behaviours at the population level and the development and evaluation of interventions to help shape public health practice and policy.

We are seeking a statistician to contribute to collaborative work between the MRC Biostatistics Unit and CEDAR. This will involve developing Value of Information (VoI) methods by applying them within health impact assessment (HIA) models.

The work relates to the development of the ITHIM tool (, used in several research projects and policy applications in UK, USA and elsewhere in the world. ITHIM estimates health risks and benefits of transport related scenarios by taking into account changes in physical activity, injuries and air pollution exposure.

5) PhD Student: University of Rotterdam 

Description of the project
Developed countries spend an increasing percentage of their GDP on health care with the aim to improve population health. However, to what extent this goal is achieved has been surprisingly difficult to demonstrate in empirical research. Therefore, whether increased health care spending improves population health remains one of the most important research questions in the field of health economics. This project aims to answer this research question by taking as starting point changes in health care policies, which will be analysed as natural experiments using state-of-the-art econometric methods.

The project aims to analyse the population health consequences of some recent changes in Dutch health care policies (e.g. changes in hospital payment schemes, introduction of expensive new technologies etc.) using several large administrative datasets that have been linked by the Netherlands Statistical Office. It will investigate whether health care policies have their intended effects by not only focusing on the health benefits of new technologies but also on possible displacement effects within health care (what activities within the health care sector are given up as a result of policy changes?). Later in the project, substitution between different types of care (preventive, curative, long-term) and/or effects of health care policies outside the Netherlands may be explored.

Results of the project will inform several policy debates including the debate what the maximum price should be for new medical technologies that are publicly financed.

The successful applicant for this position is expected to have a master degree in (health) economics, applied econometrics or applied statistics. Applicants must have excellent communication and writing skills in English, and have a strong motivation for doing empirical research in the field of health economics. At least a basic command of Dutch is desired. Computer skills should include R, Stata or similar statistical software.

Appointment and salary
We offer a position as PhD student at EUR. PhD students are appointed for a period of 4 years, starting with a temporary contract for 1.5 years followed by a second temporary contract for 2.5 years. Remuneration will be in accordance with the PhD scale set by the Collective Labour Agreement for Dutch Universities (CAO NU). Fulltime work will pay € 2.191.- before taxes in the first year, going up to €2.801.- in the fourth year. EUR offers a set end-of-year bonus of 8.3% and there are generous opportunities for additional education. A minimal teaching requirement (about 0.1 FTE) is required.
