The Centre for Health Economics (CHE) at the University of York has a rich portfolio of applied and methodological research in Economic Evaluation and Health Technology Assessment (HTA). We are expanding and complementing our existing work in this field through a programme of high quality and rigorous methods and applied research of national and international policy relevance on the Economics of Stratified, Personalised and Precision Medicine. An important component of this research programme entails the use of novel quantitative methods to enhance policy decisions using quasi-experimental research methods, with increasing focus on the use of modern causal inference techniques and decision modelling. We are seeking to appoint a Grade 6 Research Fellow to contribute to this research agenda. The ideal candidate should have a strong background in quantitative methods, such as econometrics and statistics with emphasis on causal inference and an interest in developing and applying these methods for economic evaluation for HTA decision making.
The Research Fellow will mainly contribute to an ongoing, methodologically focussed EU-funded research project (watch this brief video). The project includes academic co-investigators from several European countries, national HTA agencies (i.e. NICE, TLV, ZIN) and patient organisations. The researcher will have training opportunities to develop their analytical skills in health economics evaluation and further their competence in the use advanced causal inference methods, by attending relevant summer schools and workshops.
