CHE wishes to appoint a research fellow to contribute to an Economic and Social Research Council funded project investigating the impact of commuting on well-being and health. The research is led from CHE (Prof Nigel Rice) in collaboration with colleagues based at the University of Sheffield (Prof Jenny Roberts, Economics) and the University of Manchester (Dr  Luke Mumford, Division of Population Health, Health Services Research and Primary Care). The research will focus on the analysis of individual-level longitudinal survey data using the software package Stata.  The research fellow will be expected to:

 

  •  Undertake analysis of  longitudinal data primarily from the UK Household Longitudinal Survey Understanding Society and  the Labour Force Survey, including managing and preparing datasets and undertaking empirical analyses;
  •  Lead on the write-up of research and preparation of working papers, journal articles and policy briefing papers;
  •  Disseminate the results of research to different groups including presentations at conferences and other forums and  liaising with potential policy makers;
  •   Assist in the identification and development of potential future areas of research and the development of proposals for independent or collaborative research projects.

The person appointed may be required to undertake some, or all, of the following duties:

 

  •     Developing theoretical or analytical models;
  •     Undertaking statistical and econometric analysis and interpretation of research data;
  •     Using appropriate research techniques and methods, including regression and other statistical analysis using  individual level data from various sources;
  •     Critically reviewing relevant literature;
  •     Writing up of research results and dissemination through publications, seminar and conference presentations and public engagement and outreach activities.

Strong quantitative skills are required together with knowledge of a range of relevant research techniques and methodologies.  The ability to write up research work for publication in high profile journals and engage in public dissemination of results is essential.  A Master’s degree in economics or health economics or quantitative subject (for example statistics, econometrics) is required. A PhD in in relevant quantitative area or equivalent experience is desirable.

The post is full-time and offered on a fixed term basis of 18 months.  The salary range is on the Grade 6 scale:   £31,076 - £32,958. The interviews for this post will take place on Tuesday 8th August 2017.
