University of Strathclyde - Centre for Health Policy based in the Department of Management Science
Salary: £30,434 to £37,394
Hours: Full Time
Contract Type: Contract / Temporary
Placed on: 3rd March 2015
Closes: 2nd April 2015
Job Ref: 15253
Contract Type: Fixed term 5 years
This important post sits within the University of Strathclyde’s International Public Policy Institute and its research-based Centre for Health Policy. The Centre for Health Policy, chaired by Sir Harry Burns (formerly Chief Medical Officer of Scotland and a member of the Scottish Government’s Council of Economic Advisers), focuses on three key health challenges: how to fund healthcare delivery set against increasing expectations and demand; how to reduce health inequalities while improving population health; and how to design and deliver healthcare to meet the needs of key groups (e.g. children, young adults, older people). The successful candidate will add a strong analytic perspective to the work of the Centre and integrate work across the Centre’s policy challenges. The post holder will work with members of the Centre to identify and analyse policy interventions that meet the challenges, critically and rigorously appraise evidence and live policy interventions to help inform and influence policy. Such interventions might be early-years interventions, helping children from disadvantaged backgrounds to live flourishing and productive lives; or ones that enable health and social care to work together to more effectively and efficiently to support people with multiple complex needs. Successful candidates will: combine analytic rigour with an ability to communicate policy findings succinctly at the highest levels of government; be comfortable working in a multidisciplinary environment; have the intellectual maturity to work productively with members of the Centre from different disciplinary perspectives. Although rooted in Scotland, the Centre is international in outlook and has several international collaborations with universities such as NYU and Yale in the US, with the WHO, and with leading European centres, such as the Centre for Health Economics Research at the University of Southern Denmark; the successful candidate will be expected to build on and strengthen these relationships.
Applicants are required to complete an application form including the name of three referees who will be contacted before interview without permission, unless you indicate that you would prefer otherwise.
