Research Fellow/ Research Assistants in Health Economics x2

Are you an ambitious researcher looking for your next challenge? Do you have a background in economics, econometrics, statistics, epidemiology or health data science? Are you interested in working with observational data to address policy-relevant research questions?  Do you want to further your career in one of the UK’s leading research-intensive universities?

We are looking to appoint two researchers at Grade 6 (Research Assistant) or Grade 7 (Research Fellow) in Health Economics and Health Data Science to contribute to recently funded research projects in the Academic Unit of Health Economics (AUHE), Leeds Institute of Health Sciences. The posts are available immediately and are for two years (post 1) or three years (post 2) in the first instance. However, AUHE has an excellent track record in securing the funding required to extend research post contracts.

This is an exciting opportunity to join a thriving team of researchers.  You will be part of a large team which has a wide portfolio of funded research projects involving a broad range of statistical, econometric and health economic evaluation methods.  We are committed to supporting and developing our team members, for example through attendance at conferences and access to training in contemporary statistical, econometric and health economic evaluation methods.  We will also support you to further develop your own areas of expertise and interests.

We would be very pleased to hear from you if you wish to have an informal discussion about these posts.   Please contact: Dr Adam Martin (
