Applications are invited for Researcher in Health Economics to join an expanding group of health economists at the Nuffield Department of Primary Care Health Sciences.

The successful applicant will be encouraged to train further and develop skills to undertake high quality empirical and methodological research in health economics. There will also be opportunities to participate more broadly in the group’s portfolio of health economics research and teaching activities.

You will have (or be close to completing) a DPhil/PhD in health economics or one of its cognate disciplines, and experience of conducting economic evaluations using suitable statistical software (e.g. STATA, R or Python) is essential. This should be coupled with the ability to produce high quality health economics research relevant to the health sciences.

You will be based in the Radcliffe Primary Care Building, Nuffield Department of Primary Care Health Sciences, Woodstock Road, Oxford, OX2 6GG as your normal place of work but you may be able to agree a pattern of regular remote working with your line manager.
