The role

This post offers an exciting opportunity for an individual with training and experience in health economics, who has an interest in randomised controlled trials and analysis of routine data, to develop their career as an academic health economist. You will join the Musculoskeletal Research Unit (MRU) to work in a myriad of research projects in trauma and orthopaedics, analysing large datasets for costing and modelling and performing economic evaluation alongside surgical trials in joint replacement. You will work closely with the wider Health Economics at the University of Bristol (HEB) research group, a network of health economists at Bristol spanning three departments and two Schools.

What will you be doing?

You will contribute to the Unit's portfolio of high quality clinical and methodological research by using varied health economic methods to generate and synthesize evidence based on randomised controlled trials and routinely collected data. You will have the opportunity to widen and deepen your knowledge in a range of health economic methods according to your interests, write journal articles, travel to conferences, teach in post-graduate courses, and contribute to future grant applications. We welcome applications from experienced candidates looking for part-time or flexible working time positions. You will be appointed to a level commensurate with your experience and skill. Funding is available for a minimum of 3 years initially, with the possibility of extension into the longer term.

You should apply if
  • You enjoy working in multidisciplinary teams and would like to contribute to applying a range of health economic methods to the portfolio of research studies at the musculoskeletal research unit, Bristol Medical School.
  • You have an interest in analysis of large databases and randomised controlled trials and experience in performing statistical or econometric analysis of data, costing of healthcare resources, and/or conducting trial-based economic evaluation.
  • You are highly numerate and hold a post-graduate degree in health economics, economics, econometrics, or related discipline.
  • You want the opportunity to further your training and your skills by linking to a myriad of leading methodology research groups in health economics, statistics, evidence synthesis, and epidemiology at the Bristol Medical School, and accessing our continuous development short-course programme.
  • You are a clear and concise communicator, both orally and written, and have attention to detail.

We welcome applications from all members of our community and are particularly encouraging those from diverse groups, such as members of the LGBT+ and BAME communities, to join us.
