This is a 12 month fixed term maternity cover position. Full time or part time will be considered.

We are one of nine Technology Assessment Review ( TAR ) teams contracted to provide independent health technology assessments (HTAs) for the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence ( NICE ). We also have an active programme of other research, including systematic reviews for Cochrane, National Institute for Health Research (NIHR), and cost-effectiveness analysis in the clinical trials, statistical data analysis and decision analytic modelling.

We are looking for a researcher to join a cohesive research team working on evidence synthesis to answer major policy questions concerning the effective use of drugs, devices, procedures, diagnostics, public health programmes and other health interventions.

If you have the relevant background, this is an exciting opportunity to join a growing team developing an influential research programme. We would expect a PhD or equivalent qualification in a relevant discipline (health technology assessment/epidemiology/public health/health promotion) and/or relevant research experience. You would be encouraged and supported to develop your knowledge, skills and research interests, to publish high quality research reports and papers and to present findings at local, national and international conferences and meetings. Opportunities for further training are encouraged and supported.

Applications for Research Fellow positions will be considered from candidates who are working towards or nearing completion of a relevant PhD qualification. The title of Research Fellow will be applied upon successful completion of the PhD. Prior to the qualification being awarded the title of Senior Research Assistant will be given.
