R&T4 MED 100720 available for 1 year in the first instance.
The School of Medicine at Nottingham is expanding Health Economics at Nottingham and seeks to recruit two new health economics positions within the School of Medicine. This is an exciting opportunity to contribute to the growth of health economics at Nottingham.
Applications are invited for 2 posts within the School of Medicine Nottingham –
a Senior Health Economist (RTF 5 - £35,845 - £57,418) and
a Health Economics Research Fellow (RTF 4 - £30,942 - £44,045).
The new posts will be accountable to the Professor of Health Economics, Professor Marilyn James. Based in DRAW/NCTU, they will work across the School of Medicine (SoM) and with external research partners. Experience in health economic trials is essential and experience in health economic modelling desirable.
For the senior post the applicant will have a PhD in health economics. The role holder will lead, on some of the existing portfolio in health economics, including NIHR programme grants, HTAs and EMEs, in multiple health areas including orthopaedics, paediatrics, and mental health. They will be expected to apply for funded research as a co-applicant and to mentor junior staff in the unit and assist the Chair of Health Economics.
The Health Economics Fellow will have or be near to completion a PhD in health economics or equivalent professional experience. They will have a key role in assisting the Nottingham University Hospital Trust research teams with the application for NIHR grants and the design and execution of the health economic components of NIHR grants. The role holder will in addition, have the opportunity to actively work on university wide health economic studies and to gain valuable experience in the undertaking of economic evaluations supervised and managed by Prof James.
The successful candidates will work on a range of projects both new and existing. These include but are not exclusive to a new EME study: CAUTI: Catheter Against Urinary Tract Infection Trial: a randomised trial of antimicrobial-impregnated urinary catheters for long-term indwelling urinary catheter users; an existing EME: Brightmind : Randomised double-blind controlled trial of connectivity guided theta burst transcranial magnetic stimulation versus repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation for treatment resistant moderate to severe depression: evaluation of efficacy, cost effectiveness and mechanism of action; a new HTA: SATURN: Stimulant Medication for ADHD and Tics - Understanding Response versus Non-stimulants: a randomised trial of the clinical and cost effectiveness of methylphenidate versus guanfacine for ADHD in children and young people with a co-existing tic disorder and existing HTA:POINT : A multi-centre randomised trial of surgery versus non-surgical splint treatment for proximal phalanx shaft finger fractures in adults; and a programme grant: ROWTATE: Multicentre Research Programme to Enhance Return to Work after Trauma.
The full range of opportunities in economic evaluation are encompassed from project inception and design to bringing work to successful completion and analysis. The candidates must have the ability to communicate well with researchers who have little or no knowledge of health economics.
The Fellows post is an ideal post for a health economist who wishes to gain career experience and a track record in publications. The Senior post will enable career development and the chance to develop clear management and analytical skills to improve the role holders’ career.
The posts will be offered full time or part-time, fixed-term contract for one and two years in the first instance with opportunity to extend.
