2) Aberdeen-Curtin Alliance - two fully-funded joint PhD studentships in Health Economics 

Internationally recognized experts in health economics from the Health Economics Research Unit (HERU) at the University of Aberdeen in Scotland and from Curtin University in Perth, Australia have been brought together under the Aberdeen-Curtin Alliance to provide a unique opportunity to study in Scotland and Australia.

There are two fully-funded PhD opportunities available. One studentship is based at Aberdeen: spending two years at the University of Aberdeen and one year at Curtin University. The other studentship is based at Curtin University for two years, with one year in Aberdeen.

PhD proposals in the following areas of Health Economics are welcomed:
•         Economics of health behaviours including behavioural economics (the role of time and risk preferences in health behaviour), economics of food choice (food labelling and habitual behaviour), alcohol (evaluation of policies such as minimum unit pricing) and healthy ageing (influence of health behaviours and self-management strategies on life satisfaction over the life-course).
•         The development and application of discrete choice experiments (DCEs) in health economics including: how individuals process information when completing; its use to enable shared decision making; and external validity of the method.
•         Economic evaluation of interventions which require broader measures of value (cost benefit analysis) including preventative dental care, fertility treatments and public health interventions.
•         Development of novel methods for utilising and analysing linked administrative health data to promote evidence-based care; reduce ineffective, wasteful or harmful care; reduce unnecessary downstream health care use and costs, and improve health outcomes for patients with a range of chronic conditions.

Further details on entrance requirements, funding notes and how to apply are available at the FindAPhD studentship advert.

Background:
The Centre for Health Economics & Policy Innovation (CHEPI) has received funding from the European Commission to participate in a project on innovative methods to support future policy decisions around rare diseases.
 
Foresight in Rare Disease Policy (RARE2030), is a two-year project involving eight partners across four European countries.

We wish to appoint a research associate to work within CHEPI to capture the complex interaction between multiple factors and drivers influencing rare disease governance, assess the impact and costs of different policy options, and evaluate the potential future dynamics of rare disease drivers at 2030. The research and development pipeline of the rare disease therapeutic market will then be mapped to identify potential gaps. The gaps can then be targeted by incentive policies to promote the development of new drugs.
 
The ideal candidate will have strong background in either health economics, econometrics, pharmaceutical innovation and the industrial organisation of healthcare markets; strong quantitative analytical skills; willing to work as part of an international multidisciplinary research team; and will be expected to travel to the various countries involved in the project.

Current opportunites
Applications are now being taken for a fully funded PhD studentship with the MRC Doctoral Training Program in Precision Medicine. Assessing the value of high-priced novel treatments in oncology in an era of precision medicine: methodological and policy tools. 

PhD project summary: 

Health systems around the world are struggling to accommodate the increasing cost of new cancer treatments. In the UK a new version of the cancer drugs fund has recently been initiated and both the European Society of Medical Oncology (ESMO) and the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) have recently published ‘value frameworks’. This PhD will explore both methodological challenges in showing value for new oncology products (such as: use of surrogate endpoints; the need for extrapolation; biomarker/subgroup analysis; adjusting for cross-over) and policy tools designed to improve the value of these new treatments to the health systems (such as: cancer drugs fund in UK; patient access schemes; outcomes-based contracting in US; use of value frameworks, application of stratified/precision medicine). A unique feature of this PhD will be the opportunity to collaborate not only within the University of Glasgow, but also with researchers at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York through international collaborative links with that organisation. Research into the value of cancer therapies is timely and this PhD represents a real opportunity to address a contemporary health care policy problem from an international perspective. 

Application deadline 7th January 2019
