This vacancy is for a 24-month fellowship in health and care economics within the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) Applied Research Collaborative (ARC) South London. The post will be principally focussed on applied research and analysis relating to the economics of social care (adults and children). The work programme will be varied though the expectation is that a substantial component will focus on the economics of social care and the interface between mental health and social care delivery, specifically undertaking collaborative research and analysis with colleagues at the London School of Economics (LSE). The post-holder will also be encouraged to support and collaborate with other research themes within the ARC South London - examples include the Children and Young People’s and Public Health and Multi-morbidity themes.
The post-holder will be based at King’s Health Economics (KHE) at the Denmark Hill Campus of King’s College London under the guidance of Dr Andy Healey, who jointly leads the Economics and Biostatistics theme for the ARC South London. KHE is based within a large multidisciplinary department (Health Services and Population Research) at the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology and Neuroscience.
