The closing date for applications is 03/01/17.

2) Research Fellow, Centre for Health Economics, Monash University, Australia

Vacancy, Centre for Health Economics, Monash University, Australia
•	Be part of a large internationally renowned health economics team
•	Work for a leading Australian university
•	Exciting opportunity with great employee incentives

If you're after a rewarding career, Monash University can help make it happen.  With leading academics and world-class resources, combined with a ranking in the top 100 universities worldwide, we offer all you need to build a brighter future.

Centre for Health Economics
With a research staff of over 22 economists the Centre for Health Economics is an internationally renowned institution that contributes to academic research and public policy in the economics of health and health care. The contribution of our staff is evident in quality peer reviewed publications, fellowships and editorial roles, and in our community impact.
We are also proud of the contributions our PhD students make to the Centre and the discipline.  For more information about the Centre and the work we do, please visit our
The Centre has close links with a number of researchers in health, public economics, behavioural and experimental economics, development economics, and econometrics located in the departments of the Monash Business School at Clayton as well as the Faculty of Medicine, Nursing and Health Sciences.

The Opportunity
The Centre for Health Economics is currently seeking an enthusiastic Research Fellow with qualifications in an economics or quantitative health related discipline to join their highly motivated Health Technology Assessment group.
The primary focus of this role will be to prepare timely and accurate assessments of submissions to the Pharmaceutical Benefits Advisory Committee (PBAC) requesting subsidy of drugs under the Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme (PBS). You will be expected to work within a multi-disciplinary team to evaluate the cost effectiveness of new drug technologies and to contribute to a wider research program in health economics.

The evaluation of PBAC submissions is cyclical in nature and you will generally have to be available during those cycles. Peak periods are from early July to late September, early November to late January and early March to late May each year. On occasion, you may be required to travel interstate to attend relevant meetings or training workshops. 

As part of a wider group of researchers in the economic evaluation of health programs, you will have the opportunity to extend your skills and also to contribute to a broader range of research activities at the Centre for Health Economics including 
•	the socioeconomic determinants and dynamics of health and subjective wellbeing
•	measuring quality of life, health outcomes, and social preferences
•	preferences, choice, and behaviour in health
•	the economic analysis of health services and health systems and the evaluation of health programs

In addition, you will have an opportunity to assist teaching programs in the areas of economic evaluation of health services and health policy in general, and pharmaceuticals in particular.

This is a full-time position; however, flexible working arrangements may be negotiated.

Your application must address the selection criteria. Please refer to "How to apply for Monash Jobs"

3) Data science and Health Economics MRC PhD Studentship

MRC Precision Medicine PhD Studentship
Cost effectiveness of patient-matched pre- and on-treatment biomarkers in cancer therapy response prediction
Supervisors: Dr Andrew Sims, Dr Peter Hall & Prof Dave Robertson
Centre/Institute:  University  of Edinburgh

New biomarkers are under development that may predict benefit from specific drug therapies for breast cancer. When used before radical surgery - the neoadjuvant setting - effective drugs may shrink a cancer, increase the rate of successful surgery and improve the chance of long term cure.

The evaluation of the effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of a new biomarker in a routine NHS setting is complex, relying on impact through clinical decision making and modifications of the clinical pathway followed by a patient (1). New modelling methods are in development for this purpose that rely on the analysis of healthcare datasets and incorporation of real-world clinical data into a mathematical simulation model. The novelty of this approach is in combining molecular biomarker data with clinical event and clinical outcomes and healthcare costs data within a Bayesian Generalized Evidence Synthesis framework as a basis for constructing a patient simulation model using methods such as semi-Markov state transition models or discrete event simulation.

The project will take as examples a number of biomarkers and genomic signatures arising from a research program in bioinformatics at the Edinburgh Cancer Research Centre. For example, we have developed a very promising method for accurately predicting response to pre-operative aromatase inhibitor therapy in early breast cancer using patient-matched pre- and on-treatment biomarkers (2). This method out-performs all established pre-treatment only assessment methods, but potentially modifies the patient’s clinical pathway. A patent has been submitted and we are working towards a prospective clinical trial. Similar studies of pre- and on-treatment prediction approaches with established and novel therapies are also underway. 

The aim of the project will be to develop an analytical and modelling platform for the comparison of the potential clinical effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of in-development biomarkers when used in a routine NHS setting to guide therapy prior to the surgical treatment of early breast cancer. The model will be used to assess the potential value to the NHS, academia and commercial funders of further investment in research and development of specific diagnostic tests (3).

Training Outcomes
The student will be based within the University of Edinburgh Institute of Genetics and Molecular Medicine where he or she will learn about the development and validation of biomarkers in the neoadjuvant treatment setting, relying on methods in bioinformatics and molecular oncology. In addition, the student will develop skills in Health Technology Assessment through the Usher Institute of Population Health Sciences including bespoke training in Health Economic modelling. Through joint supervision within the Farr Institute from the School of Informatics, the student will also develop expertise in cutting edge methods for the mathematical simulation of patient pathways based on routine NHS data
