Role Description

The Centre for Health Economics (CHE), wishes to appoint a Research Fellow at Grade 6/7 to work on a long-term project awarded through the UKRI Collective Fund ‘Growing Capability’ Award titled: GCRF Thanzi la Onse (Health of All), in collaboration with project partners in the UK, Malawi and Uganda.  The project centres on supporting health and health care resource allocation decisions in sub-Saharan Africa, and involves collaboration with specialisms in epidemiology and modelling, as well as politics and governance. 

The main duties of the role are to conduct research under the supervision of senior colleagues and to contribute to the production of research. This will also include communicating the results of research to different groups through written reports and papers, presentations at conferences and other forums, and at workshops and other meetings. You will be required to assist in the identification and development of potential areas of research and the development of proposals for independent or collaborative research projects

In addition at Grade 7 the post holder would:

•           Supervise the research activities of less experienced colleagues, providing expert advice and guidance

•           Participate actively in the planning and management of research projects more generally (e.g. communication with relevant stakeholders)

•           Lead on or contribute to the leadership of the production of research outputs and research outcomes

•           Attend departmental meetings as required and undertake appropriate managerial and administrative tasks in connection with the research activity

A Master’s degree in economics is essential in both roles, with a significant focus on health economics; and a PhD or comparable experience in health economics is essential for appointees at Grade 7 and desirable for appointees at Grade 6.  Well-developed analytical skills, including a strong quantitative background and knowledge of relevant areas of economics to engage in high quality research is required.  Experience of conducting research in health economics, development economics with a health focus, public health or health policy, and within African health systems is desirable. Appointees to Grade 7 are required to demonstrate ability to source research funding and supervise research activities of less experienced staff.

The post is full-time, although applications for part-time working will be considered (minimum of 0.8FTE), on a fixed-term basis of 24 months (for appointees to Grade 6) and open contract (for Grade 7 appointees)

Informal enquiries may be made to Paul Revill ( or Trish Smith (
