2) 4-year PhD studentships at the University of Birmingham studying mental wellbeing investments
 
Location: Health Economics Unit, Institute of Applied Health Research, University of Birmingham
Funding: Tax-free stipend starting at £22,859 p/a in year 1 and rising over the course of the PhD
Closing date: July 9th, with interviews on July 21st
 
Applications are invited for two 4-year Wellcome Trust PhD Studentships starting at the end of September 2021. The appointees will be integral to the Wellbeing Investments in Schools and Employers (WISE) programme; a 4-year Wellcome Trust award held by Prof Hareth Al-Janabi. They will be part of a large post-graduate community  in the Institute of Applied Health Research.  
 
The WISE programme of work seeks to establish how schools and workplaces invest resources in mental wellbeing. The research will generate models of decision-making processes, establish how schools and workplaces can be best supported to make equitable and efficient decisions, and develop new research methods for studying investment decisions in organisations.
 
PhD 1 will focus on studying decision-making in large workplaces.  The student will apply ‘process-tracing’ using in-depth primary and secondary policy research, to understand how and why workplaces allocate resources to mental wellbeing. The PhD will be supervised by Prof Hareth Al-Janabi and Dr Rebecca Johnson.
 
PhD 2 will focus on studying the different viewpoints individuals hold about mental wellbeing investment in schools and workplaces.  The student will identify and analyse perspectives using qualitative research and Q-methodology, focusing on perspectives held by workers, policy-makers, and the public. The PhD will be supervised by Prof Hareth Al-Janabi and Dr Sarah-Jane Fenton.
 
These are excellent opportunities for a doctoral student to work on an innovative Wellcome Trust-funded study on mental wellbeing investments. The appointed students will play an important role in ensuring the programme delivers real research advances.  The studentships offer the post-holder the chance to develop policy research skills in an environment where they will be well-supported with training and development opportunities. UK PhD tuition fees are covered.

6) PhD Scholarship at University of Aberdeen


Health Economics Research Unit (HERU), University of Aberdeen

We are advertising a University of Aberdeen Elphinstone Scholarship for PhD research in HERU on 'Valuing the benefits of oral health interventions for use in economic evaluation'. 

Supervisors: Professor Marjon van der Pol (HERU), Dr Ekta Gupta (Dental Education, University of Aberdeen) and Dr Dwayne Boyers (HERU).

Economic evaluations provide crucial information to different stakeholders including policymakers to ensure efficient resource allocation. Decision-making bodies provide guidance and recommendations on the reimbursement of new and existing interventions within healthcare systems based on clinical and cost-effectiveness evidence. Cost-effectiveness analyses in health typically use generic preference-based measures (PBM), such as EQ-5D or SF-6D, to calculate quality adjusted life year (QALY) to measure the benefits of treatments. Whilst these measures work well in most clinical contexts, they may not adequately capture oral health related quality of life (OHRQoL). Generic measures of health might not be sufficiently sensitive to capture the outcomes of care that are of greatest value to dental patients as they do not cover all relevant dimensions specific to dental care. Several validated OHRQoL instruments exist, however none of them are preference-based, meaning that they are not amenable for use in health economic evaluation. Hence, health economic evaluations in oral health research often use direct valuation methods such as willingness to pay (WTP), or a generic PBM such as EQ-5D.

Despite these concerns, little research has been conducted to measure the benefits of dental health interventions, or to determine appropriate health state utility values, for use in health economics evaluations, particularly in adult dental care. There are several research questions that can be addressed in this PhD:
•	Should a dental specific QALY be developed, and would existing oral health related quality of life (OHRQoL) measures such as the OHIP-14 be suitable for this? If so, the PhD could develop a preference-based measure of OHRQoL and generate valuation tariffs using surveys to enable calculation of dental QALYs.
•	How do we best value acute dental health states (for example, tooth ache due to caries) that are short in duration?
•	Should we generate societal willingness to pay tariffs for important dental health outcomes that could improve the interpretation of cost-effectiveness analyses or could inform development of cost-benefit analyses.
As part of the project, you will utilise data collected alongside existing and ongoing randomised controlled trials of interventions in adult primary dental care, including decision models, to implement and test the valuation approaches you develop. This will include investigating the impact of the methods you develop on the results of existing economic evaluation studies. Throughout the project, you will be encouraged to identify and develop your own methodological research questions to improve the valuation approaches.

There are further details of the PhD and the application procedure at the 'FindAPhD' site.
The deadline for applications is 29 July 2021.

Note that this is a competition funded PhD project. The project is funded by a University of Aberdeen Elphinstone Scholarship. An Elphinstone Scholarship covers the cost of tuition fees only, whether home, EU or overseas. Please note, no stipend is available for this project.
