10) Fully funded PhD studentship, Department of Economics, University of Bristol, UK

Fully-funded PhD studentship in Health Economics
Department of Economics
University of Bristol

Applications are invited for a fully-funded studentship in Health Economics at the Department of Economics, University of Bristol. The project will explore the role of interactions between ‘nature’ and ‘nurture’ in creating inequalities in health and disease. It is one of the 69 projects advertised by the GW4 BioMed MRC Doctoral Training Partnership (DTP). We invite applications from eligible students for a studentship that would commence in October 2019.
The project
Summary:        The project will advance understanding of causal gene-environment interactions (GxE) in the formation of life course inequalities in health and disease. Combining methods from genetics and social science, it will test whether privileged environments protect against genetic susceptibility to risky health behaviours, such as smoking, drinking, and obesity.

Although GxE analysis is not new, only a few studies have attempted to take into account the possible endogeneity (i.e. unobserved confounding) of the environment. This studentship will exploit ‘natural experiments’ to deal with unmeasured confounding, using data such as the UK Biobank.

This studentship will link to a larger (NORFACE DIAL) award that started in March 2018, allowing the successful candidate to enjoy the many opportunities for training and collaboration through this wider network, and learn from many senior researchers, post-docs, as well as other PhD studentships funded through the project.

Training:           The PhD student will engage in genetic, epidemiological, economics, as well as econometrics training. This will allow the student to work and collaborate across disciplines. The project will provide a general framework to analyse GxE for health outcomes, based on solid empirical identification. 

Supervision:    The interdisciplinary supervisory team consists of Dr. Stephanie von Hinke (main supervisor; Department of Economics, University of Bristol), Dr. Rachel Freathy (Medical School, University of Exeter), and Professor Frank Windmeijer (Department of Economics, University of Bristol).
Funding & Eligibility
Funding:           The studentship would be funded through the GW4 BioMed MRC Doctoral Training Partnership (DTP). It consists of full UK/EU tuition fees, as well as a Doctoral Stipend matching the UK Research Council National Minimum (£14,777 p.a. for 2018/19, updated each year). The studentships would typically be a maximum of 3.5 years full-time or up to 7 years part-time, and can be longer where additional training is undertaken (e.g. a Masters). Additional research and training funding is available over the course of the programme. This will cover some costs, such as research consumables, courses, conferences and travel.

Eligibility:         The DTP welcomes applications from both UK and EU applicants, especially in areas of economics, social science, and statistics. Applicants must have obtained, or be about to obtain, a First or Upper Second Class UK Honours degree, or the equivalent qualifications gained outside the UK. For this project, we are looking for someone with strong quantitative skills, ideally in economics or a related discipline, though we are happy to consider applicants with other quantitative backgrounds.

To be eligible for a full award (fees and stipend) from a Research Council, a UK or EU student must have no restrictions on how long they can stay in the UK and have been ordinarily resident in the UK for at least 3 years prior to the start of the studentship.

An EU student who has not been resident in the UK for at least 3 years prior to the start of the studentship is generally eligible for a fees-only award from the Research Council: to be eligible for a fees-only award, a student must be ordinarily resident in a member state of the EU; in the same way as UK students must be ordinarily resident in the UK. The DTP has additional funding from the partner universities to support a limited number of EU students who do not meet the UK residency requirements, so long as they meet the criteria for a fees-only award; these studentship will therefore be fully funded (fees and stipend). ). For full details on eligibility, please refer to the Terms and Conditions of Research Council Training Grants.

Please note that negotiations regarding ‘Brexit’ will not affect recruitment of EU students for studentships starting in October 2019, 9, as per July 2018, the government announcement that non-UK EU doctoral students applying for courses beginning in the academic year 2019/20 remain eligible for UKRI support.

English:            If English is not your first language you will need to have achieved at least 6.5 in IELTS (and no less than 6.5 in any section) by the start of the programme.
More information
MRC GW4:       The ‘GW4 BioMed MRC DTP’ brings together the Universities of Bath, Bristol, Cardiff and Exeter. The DTP is awarding up to 18 studentships to the best applicants. Applicants can choose up to three of the 69 projects available across the GW4 BioMed MRC Doctoral Training Partnership, listed here. For an overview of the MRC GW4 BioMed programme, see

12) Two fully-funded PhD studentships at The University of Manchester, UK

The University of Manchester is advertising two PhD studentships in health economics, funded by the Medical Research Council.
Deadline for applications: Friday, 16 November 2018.
1. How effective are “Community Approaches” at protecting and improving health and well-being and reducing inequalities?
Supervisors Matt Sutton, Luke Munford, Ruth Lupton and Paul Wilson
This PhD will answer three research questions on the role of community approaches in improving health and reducing health inequalities:
i) Do community asset programmes reduce health and well-being inequalities?
ii) What are the health and well-being benefits of addressing financial indebtedness?
iii) Do social prescribing programmes reduce isolation and loneliness and improve health and well-being?
The student will use a range of linked survey and administrative data sources, including a longitudinal survey of older adults in Salford linked to health records from primary and secondary care, the UK Household Longitudinal Survey and the English Longitudinal Study of Ageing. The student will also work closely with the Greater Manchester Health & Social Care Partnership to obtain data on uptake and outcomes from the social prescribing programmes that are being adopted across Greater Manchester.
This PhD would be suitable for a candidate with expertise in economics and econometrics, interest in broader quantitative social science, and a commitment to undertaking socially-relevant research.
2. Identifying and quantifying the relative importance that patients attach to the outcomes of safe prescribing in primary care
Supervisors: Rachel Elliott, Katherine Payne, Gavin Daker-White
There are over 1.8 million serious prescribing errors in English general practices annually. Hazardous prescribing is associated with substantial healthcare costs, reduced quality of life and increased risk of mortality. Focussing on health status alone may underestimate the value of interventions to current and future patients and decision-makers. Qualitative work suggests that what people consider important in safety extends beyond health status and includes preventability and trust. Another component that may be important to patients is process utility, such as how the information about potential harms is communicated. 
The aim of this PhD is to explore the relative importance to patients of safe prescribing, capturing health status, non-health benefits and process utility. This PhD will use stated preference methods (discrete choice experiments (DCEs) or best-worst scaling experiments (BWS)) to quantify the stated preferences of patients for the relative order of importance of different consequences possible when a medicine is prescribed more safely as a result of a general practice based intervention. 
The PhD will have the following stages:
i) Carry out a literature review, critique and meta-synthesis of the published evidence
ii) Complete a qualitative interview-based study to develop the preference experiment.
iii) Design, execute and present analysis of a preference experiment.
If you are interested in one of these projects, please make direct contact with the Principal Supervisor to arrange to discuss the project further as soon as possible. You MUST also submit an online application form - full details on how to apply can be found on the MRC DTP website
As an equal opportunities institution we welcome applicants from all sections of the community regardless of gender, ethnicity, disability, sexual orientation and transgender status. All appointments are made on merit.
