6) Nuffield Department of Population Health (NDPH), University of Oxford: Early/ Intermediate/ Senior Fellowships (closing 31 May 2021) & a virtual visit to the University of Oxford
The Nuffield Department of Population Health (NDPH) at the University of Oxford is currently offering a range of Fellowships for early (i.e. within 6 months of completion of a PhD), mid-career and senior researchers. These fellowships provide up to three years of support for suitably experienced individuals to develop an independent research area (including health economics) that enhances population health research in Oxford. The closing date for the Fellowship applications is 31 May 2021 and more details can be found here: https://www.ndph.ox.ac.uk/about/vacancies
The NDPH has more than 30 health economists primarily working in the Health Economics Research Centre (https://www.herc.ox.ac.uk/), or the National Perinatal Epidemiology Unit (https://www.npeu.ox.ac.uk/).
While not part of any formal selection process, it is often useful for those considering applying for fellowships to make contact with health economists within NDPH. This facilitates an understanding of the health economics research being conducted and to discuss the scope for future research collaborations, including during a Fellowship.
We would ask those interested to send a brief CV (two page), a full list of publications and a one-page proposal for a program of research that could be completed as part of a Fellowship.
We will make arrangements for a limited number of researchers that have a background and interests that closely align with health economists within NDPH to make a “virtual visit” in mid-May which will involve meeting with relevant staff. In order to be considered for a virtual visit, please send your CV and proposal to [log in para visualizar] by THURSDAY 29 APRIL 2021.
