1) Senior technical analyst (economic modelling)
 
National Institute for Health and Care Excellence
 
Location:	Manchester or London
Salary:	NHS Agenda for Change Band 8A: £44,606 - £50,819 per annum (plus high-cost area supplement for London)
Hours:	Full time, 37.5 hours per week
Contract Type:	Permanent
Placed on:	9 July 2019
Closes:	12 August 2019
Job Ref:	907-NICE833
 
This is an exciting job that presents a unique combination of opportunities: not only will you apply cutting-edge quantitative methods to conduct original, high-quality research, you will also present it to national policy-makers and contribute to their decision-making. You also get the satisfaction of knowing your work will directly improve health and social care in England. See our ‘week in the life’ document for an illustrative indication of what you can expect to do.

The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) is the independent organisation responsible for providing national guidance and advice on promoting high quality health, public health and social care.

The Centre for Guidelines is a world-leading authority in developing clinical, public health and social care guidelines. It provides recommendations for the NHS and local authorities on appropriate prevention, treatment and care options for people in England, based on systematic appraisal of the best available evidence of effectiveness and cost effectiveness.

We are recruiting a Band 8A Senior technical analyst (economic modelling). Working collaboratively within a small multidisciplinary team, you will provide advice and technical support to committees on economic issues during development and updating of guidelines. This includes systematically identifying and appraising economic evidence to address key health and social care questions and preparing structured summaries of the evidence.
 
You will also undertake the development of original, applied decision models and analyses that will be used to inform the deliberations of the guideline committee (comprising decision-makers who are predominantly clinical, public health, social care and patient experts with limited formal expertise in economics). 
 
Providing a quality assurance function, you will be involved in reviewing guidelines produced by other developers to ensure that they reflect the economic evidence appropriately. When undertaking quality assurance, the post holder will also ensure that economic modelling and statistical analyses produced by the developer have been conducted robustly, are in line with NICE’s methods and are free from technical errors. The post holder will also have the opportunity to mentor junior analysts. 
 
What you will bring to NICE:

The primary requirement for the position of Senior technical analyst (economic modelling) is demonstrable ability in the practical application of mathematical modelling to inform real-world decision problems:
•	You should have skills and experience in decision-analytic modelling, ideally gained in the context of economic evaluation for health, public health or social care.
•	Expert skills in the analysis and synthesis of quantitative data are essential, as is the ability to communicate the methods and results of complex analyses to a range of audiences, both orally and in writing.
•	At present, the team has a preference for models developed in MS Excel, R, TreeAge and/or WinBUGS; however, applications from candidates with experience in other platforms are welcome.
 
The post-holder will have the opportunity to extend their own skills in modelling and economics and contribute to methodological developments in the field. Our Senior technical analysts are supported to publish their research in high-impact journals and to present at international conferences. The post will be line-manged by a Band 8B Technical adviser (economics).
 
Why NICE:
 
Here at NICE we are passionate and proud of the work we do and the impact we make.
 
We can offer you a great place to work with good benefits, flexible working and a supportive, friendly and inclusive environment.
 
We have an academic culture committed to producing high quality work and we take collective responsibility.

3) PhD studentship, Centre for Health Economics & Medicines Evaluation, Bangor University, Wales

MRC-NIHR Trials Methodology Research Partnership Bangor University hosted PhD studentship
Bangor University - Centre for Health Economics and Medicines Evaluation - School of Health Sciences
Qualification Type:	PhD
Location:	Bangor
Funding for:	UK Students, EU Students
Funding amount:	£15,009 per annum
Hours:	Full Time
Placed On:	16th July 2019
Closes:	1st September 2019


A fully funded PhD studentship to start in October 2019 is available at the Centre for Health Economics and Medicines Evaluation in the School of Health Sciences, Bangor University. As part of the MRC-NIHR Trials Methodology Research Partnership, the 3-year studentship will cover the UK/EU tuition fee, provide a maintenance stipend in line with RCUK rates (£15,009 per annum for full time award holders) and funding for research costs. The primary supervisor will be Professor Dyfrig Hughes, with co-supervision from Professor Carolyn Young from the Walton Centre NHS Trust, and Professor Andrea Jorgensen from the University of Liverpool. 

The project
A number of mechanisms exist for the NHS to fund certain new medicines for which there is limited evidence for their clinical or cost-effectiveness. Patient access to promising new cancer treatments, for instance, is increasingly via managed access arrangements that specify data collection processes to address areas of clinical uncertainty. HIV Pre-exposure Prophylaxis is currently available in England only via the Impact Trial, following a legal dispute over funding arrangements. In 2002, when NICE did not recommend certain treatments for multiple sclerosis (MS), the MS risk-sharing scheme was set up to collect data to assess their cost effectiveness.

The optimal methods of studies that follow on from HTA decisions are not well established. Using data already collected on over 5,000 people with MS from the Trajectories of Outcome in Neurological Conditions (TONiC) study, this project will explore different study designs that may improve the efficiency of reducing uncertainties in the clinical and cost-effectiveness of new medicines. 

Funding
The studentship provides a stipend at current RCUK rates (£15,009 per annum) plus Home/EU tuition fees (£4,330 per annum). Full time (3 years) or part time study (up to 6 years, pro rata funding) is possible. Research costs are included. 

Requirements
A good degree in a mathematical or statistical discipline is required. A Master’s degree in a quantitative discipline would also be desirable. The ideal candidate would have a strong quantitative background, and demonstrate an interest in working in a multidisciplinary group. 

Training opportunities and student support
The student will be supported for their learning needs by their supervisors and postdoctoral staff at the Centre for Health Economics and Medicines Evaluation. Additional training will include attendance to specialist short courses. There will also be opportunities for the student to undertake taught modules at postgraduate level to provide the extra skills and knowledge needed to undertake postgraduate research, as well as attend workshops and courses provided for postgraduate research students by Bangor University’s Centre for the Enhancement of Learning and Teaching. 

How to Apply
Interested candidates are advised to discuss the project with Professor Dyfrig Hughes [log in para visualizar] Closing date for application is the 1st September 2019. https://www.bangor.ac.uk/courses/postgrad/research/apply_research.php.en 
Start date
Autumn 2019, ideally prior to 31st October 2019
