Research Assistant/Associate in Health Economics

An opportunity for a motivated health economist to join the growing number of health economists at the University of Cambridge. The post holder will be split 50/50 between the Centre for Diet and Activity Research (CEDAR) and the Cambridge Centre for Health Services Research (CCHSR), a joint venture between the University of Cambridge and RAND Europe.

The post holder will work on a number of economic evaluations and other studies with an economic or econometric component with a public health focus. The interventions evaluated by CEDAR are typically delivered outside of the NHS (for example in transport and urban policy) such that it is important to capture wider or multiple perspectives in terms of both costs and outcomes for different stakeholders.

This post will therefore suit someone aspiring to work at the forefront of economics, with a desire to work across sectors (including environment, health, transport, and education) and methods (including microsimulation, health impact simulation, transport economics, economic evaluation, multi-criteria decision analysis, econometric analysis) in the pursuit of improving public health in innovative ways.
