Job vacancies: Two Research Fellow posts in global health economics, CHE, University of York, UK
CHE is seeking to appoint two research fellows – one at Grade 6 and the other at Grade 7 – ideally with experience in global health, with a particular focus on low- and middle-income countries, as well as expertise in health economic evaluation and an interest to apply and develop this expertise in the context of the evaluation of population- and system-level interventions.  The people appointed will be working on a recently awarded long-term project, led by CHE (Prof. Marc Suhrcke), in collaboration with partners in Brazil, South Africa and Indonesia. 

The research fellows will be expected to:
•	contribute to and/or lead on the production of research outputs and research outcomes
•	communicate the results of research to different audiences (academics, policymakers and the general public) through written reports and papers, presentations at conferences, workshops and other forums
•	assist in the identification and development of potential areas of research and the development of proposals for independent or collaborative research projects
The people appointed may be required to undertake some, or all, of the following duties:
•	liaise with local research teams in the partner countries (Brazil, South Africa and Indonesia) as necessary throughout the project, for data analysis and interpretation of results
•	prepare, analyse and interpret research data
•	critically review relevant literature
•	write-up research results and disseminate research findings through publications, seminar and conference presentations, including public engagement with non-research specialist organisations using other appropriate media
The Grade 7 research fellow may be expected to:
•	supervise the research activities of less experienced colleagues, providing expert advice and guidance
•	participate actively in the planning and management of research projects more generally (e.g. communication with relevant stakeholders)

A Master’s degree in health economics or similar quantitative subject is essential for both roles, and a PhD in health economics or relevant experience is mandatory for the Grade 7 role.  Strong quantitative skills and experience in health economics and outcomes research, as well as the ability to write-up research work for publication in journal and presentation in public dissemination is required for both roles.  Applicants to the Grade 7 role are required to have skills and experience in applying advanced econometric methods relevant for policy impact evaluation in health.  Candidates are expected to possess an enthusiasm to work in health economics/economic evaluation in global health.
