2) PhD Studentship in Health Economics and early cancer detection based at Exeter University UK and Queensland University Australia.

PhD Studentship in Health Economics and early cancer detection based at Exeter University and Queensland University Australia.
Health Economics Group, Institute of Health Research
We are offering a prestigious PhD studentship in Health Economics that is generously funded with full tuition fees, stipend, a travel allowance and a research training grant. The successful students will be supervised by Anne Spencer and Willie Hamilton at the University of Exeter and Steve Birch and Geoff Mitchell at the University of Queensland. The student will spend a significant period of time in both the UK and Australia as part of their programme.
The project aims to develop the health economics framework in this area and to deliver new knowledge to support decision-making on early cancer diagnosis and co-morbidities by:
•         Using observational data available in the UK and Australia to develop health economics research/analyses to inform on benefits/outcomes of diagnostic testing for people with pre-existing conditions. 
•         Develop and implement a choice based approach (experiment) to explore if patient and practitioner preferences among diagnostic strategies (frequency, invasiveness of test procedures) and outcomes vary according to the presence/type of pre-existing conditions.
For more details see
We intend that the successful candidate will have the opportunity to join the Cancer Research UK CanTest international collaborative and the International School in Cancer Detection to produce transformative Health Economics research around the early detection of cancer (

8) PhD opportunity at the University of Leeds, UK

PhD opportunity within the Test Evaluation Group, Academic Unit of Health Economics, University of Leeds
Application Deadline Friday 18th May
In recent decades, the use of antibiotics has increased significantly. This has resulted in a rise in the number and type of bacteria resistant to currently available antibiotics. 

A large consortium of researchers at the University of Leeds have secured a 5 year MRC-funded programme grant to accelerate the development of infection diagnostics tools that are urgently required to stop the unnecessary use of antibiotics. The aim of the programme is to design, test and build a rapid point-of-care device for hospital doctors and GPs which can rapidly diagnose a patient’s infection. 

In this PhD project, you will use economic modelling to explore the characteristics of the new test required for it to be clinically- and cost-effective. This project will facilitate the development of strong economic modelling skills, experience in analysing routinely-collected healthcare data, and exposure to the laboratory validation of novel in-vitro diagnostic tests. There is some flexibility in the specific focus of the PhD, but it does need to complement the AMR programme. 

The successful candidate will also be embedded in the MRC Doctoral Training Partnership, Faculty of Medicine and Health, University of Leeds which will provide additional training opportunities and local student cohort activities.
