The Southampton Health Technology Assessments Centre (SHTAC) is part of the Wessex Institute, within the Faculty of Medicine at the University of Southampton. SHTAC is inviting applications for the post of Research Fellow in Health Economics.


SHTAC is a national centre of excellence in health technology assessment and one of nine Technology Assessment Review (TAR) teams commissioned to assess the clinical effectiveness and cost effectiveness of health technologies for the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) and other national policy customers. Our research portfolio includes evaluations of drugs, medical devices, diagnostics and procedures, and other health and public health programmes. Members of SHTAC have expertise in health economic evaluation and decision modelling, systematic review and evidence synthesis, information science and broader health services research.

With the continuation of our TAR contract and expansion of other grant funded research, we are looking to appoint a researcher with excellent analytical and quantitative skills. Working as part of a team, the post-holder will: critically review submitted cost-effectiveness evidence and decision models; develop new models; explore alternative scenarios and uncertainties; write reports and papers; and interact with NICE, committees and other stakeholders.

The appointment will be for three years in the first instance with good prospects for extension, subject to performance and funding. The closing date is Thursday 14th July. More information on the post is available on the University of Southampton recruitment pages.
