Role Description

We are seeking applications for a National Institute of Health Research (NIHR) Research Methods Fellowship to be based at the Centre for Health Economics (CHE) at the University of York.  The aim of the Fellowship is to support the development of a talented individual, especially someone who is not currently working in a health-related field, by providing the necessary support and training to become a specialist methodologist in health economics.  The Fellowship will provide training and research experience in the specific area of economic evaluation and health technology assessment. 

We are looking for a highly-talented individual who is either in their early graduate career, has completed a master’s degree in a quantitative subject or is returning to the work-place after a career break, and who is looking to change the focus of their career whilst still utilising their previous training.

We will provide dedicated time (2 years full-time; or 3 years part-time at 66% full-time equivalent (FTE)) for the Fellow to undertake structured training in research methods relating to health economics, and to gain experience in a high-quality research environment relating to that field.  We are offering one Fellowship post and depending on qualifications and experience we will appoint at the relevant level of salary. 

In addition to the salary the Fellowship includes research/training costs of £1000 per annum and tuition fees for either a Master’s degree or short courses.
