8) Research Fellow: Health Equity Group, CHE, University of York, UK

Research Fellow: Health Equity Group, CHE, University of York, UK
The Centre for Health Economics (CHE) wishes to appoint a Research Fellow to conduct quantitative research on distributive justice and early years development, funded via a NIHR Senior Research Fellowship to work within the CHE health equity group.  
Candidate Brief 
You will have a strong interest in distributive justice and early years development, the ability to think independently, and a masters degree with a substantial economic or quantitative component.  

The current methods of economic evaluation used to inform public sector decision making focus on costs and benefits for a mythical ‘average’ citizen rather than providing information on who gains and who loses from decisions in terms of health and wellbeing. This research aims to develop new methods for using economic evaluation to analyse the impacts of cross-government policies on lifetime wellbeing and distributive justice.  The focus will be on illustrating these methods by helping to design, parameterize and use a decision analytical model of the long-term impacts of early years education policies on individual health, income and wellbeing over the lifecourse.
The post is offered in the salary range £31,076 to £38,183 a year on a full-time basis (although applications for flexible or part-time working will be considered). The post is available on a fixed-term contract for 15 months.
Informal enquiries:  For research enquiries contact the supervisor Professor Richard Cookson ([log in para visualizar]), and for enquiries about the Centre generally contact Trish Smith ([log in para visualizar]).
