“Committed to equality and valuing diversity”
The University of Surrey, Guildford, UK

The University of Surrey is a global university with a world-class research profile and an enterprising spirit. The School of Economics at Surrey (www.surrey.ac.uk/economics) enjoys a strong profile in research and teaching, exemplified by a successful 2014 REF and NSS scores. We have recently invested heavily to recruit staff whose innovative work is having a large impact on international research agendas.

The School of Economics is seeking to appoint a Research Fellow to work on a new project funded by The Health Foundation “Retention of clinical workforce in English NHS hospitals: variations, trends and effects on patient outcomes” (https://www.health.org.uk/funding-and-partnerships/programmes/retention-of-the-clinical-and-ambulance-workforce-in-english-nhs-hospitals).

This project is motivated by the observation that a decade of austerity has led to negative effects on the working conditions of the NHS’s large workforce and the ‘haemorrhaging’ of some groups of permanent healthcare staff. These positions must be covered by temporary staff at higher cost or left unfilled to the detriment of patient care.

The project will use large scale micro-economic data to investigate two questions:

What are the determinants of variations in NHS workforce retention, in both acute care and mental health hospitals?

What are the impacts of poor workforce retention on patient’s health outcomes?

Our results will be important for understanding the effects of lowering NHS staff turnover and for identifying policies that NHS employers and other policy makers can use to effectively improve staff turnover.

This position would be suitable for the holder of a recently-completed PhD with expertise in health and/or labour economics or applied econometrics, or a valid PhD candidate within the final year before their PhD thesis submission. The successful candidate will have considerable experience of data management and analysis using Stata (as well other econometric software, e.g. R) and an interest in using research to shape policy. Preference will be given to candidates who are knowledgeable and interested in applied causal inference. The appointment will be on a fixed term basis for 42 months, the remaining duration of the project.

The post-holder will have to work and interact with the investigators of the project, colleagues in the School of Economics and in the University, academics in other institutions, as well as healthcare managers and healthcare policy leaders. He/She will also be involved in the lively academic life of the School of Economics, with the opportunity to attend weekly research seminars and workshops in applied micro, econometrics and economic theory. There may be also opportunities to carry out teaching activities where there is a fit between the needs of the School and the interests of the successful applicant.

The post-holder will be supervised by the Principal Investigator of the grant, Dr Giuseppe Moscelli, working closely also with the other co-investigators (Dr Jo Blanden (Surrey), Prof Chris Bojke (Leeds), Dr Ioannis Laliotis (City University)), and is expected to contribute to deliver the project outputs including the interim and final reports, peer-reviewed publications and the organization of project meetings.

The project budget includes funds to cover research expenses and to attend local and international conferences and seminars to disseminate research findings, as well as to cover training workshop expenses aimed at capacity building for the post holder.

For an informal discussion regarding this position, please contact Dr Giuseppe Moscelli (g.moscelli@surrey.ac.uk) or Dr Jo Blanden (j.blanden@surrey.ac.uk) via email.

To apply, please use the following link: https://jobs.surrey.ac.uk/Vacancy.aspx?ref=081419

Please note, it is University Policy to offer a starting salary equivalent to Level 3.6 (£31,866) to successful applicants who have been awarded, but are yet to receive, their PhD certificate. Once the original PhD certificate has been submitted to the local HR Department, the salary will be increased to Level 4.1 (£32,817).

Aquarius Population Health, London, UK

Aquarius is working with a client on a rare disease which is not well-understood from a clinical and disease progression perspective. We are looking for someone to join the team immediately on a fixed-term employment contract or freelance basis. They will be required to analyse raw clinical trial data to inform an understanding of the natural history of the disease and clinical management, with the end goal of informing a health economic model. As this disease is not well understood, there is an opportunity for contributing to new metrics in understanding the disease characteristics and publishing results in peer-reviewed journals. There may also be opportunities for someone who has experience in health economic modelling to work on the follow-on modelling project as well.

The suitable person will have proven ability and demonstrable evidence that they can independently design and carry out a comprehensive and thorough data analysis from start to finish.  This will include developing an analysis plan, writing the analysis script, running analyses, interpretation of results and write-up. They should be very comfortable with exploratory analyses and different methods of regression analyses, working closely with a team of researchers with different backgrounds, and clients who have had ongoing involvement in the project.

Start date: immediate – early September (candidates will be considered as they apply, and interviews will be conducted immediately on a rolling basis)
