The Division of Health Research (DHR) within Lancaster University’s Faculty of Health and Medicine is seeking to appoint a Senior Research Associate to join the Health Economics at Lancaster group, to support the NIHR School for Public Health Research LiLaC collaboration, specifically as part of the Efficiency and Equity theme.   

LiLaC is one of eight leading academic centres with excellence in applied public health research which make up the NIHR School for Public Health Research (NIHR SPHR).  LiLaC is The Liverpool and Lancaster Universities Collaboration for Public Health Research. It was founded by Professor Jennie Popay and Professor Dame Margaret Whitehead in 2012. LiLaC’s mission is to produce evidence on how to tackle inequalities in health through action on the upstream causes of inequalities – these are the conditions in which we live or work and where children grow up or people grow old.  This position will be responsible to Professor Bruce Hollingsworth, working as part of the Efficiency and Equity theme.  

You must have a PhD in a relevant discipline, and ideally have research experience in health economics, as evidenced by a track record of publications, relative to opportunity. Experience in a health-related area is preferred but not essential. 

The Faculty provides an environment that strongly supports the individual needs of each employee, promoting a healthy work-life balance. We are committed to family-friendly and flexible working policies on an individual basis, as well as the Athena SWAN Charter, which recognises and celebrates good employment practice undertaken to address gender equality in higher education. 

The position is 0.5 fte available from 1st January 2021 and we are open to discussing flexible working arrangements including working week and days/hours worked, flexible start and finish times or condensed hours. 
You will join us on an indefinite contract however the roles remain contingent on external funding which at this time is due to come to an end on 31st January 2022.  

Please direct informal enquiries to Professor Bruce Hollingsworth 

We welcome applications from people in all diversity groups.
