The Centre undertakes collaborative interdisciplinary research in applied health economics and health service delivery. It has strong relationships with a large number of academic, NHS and private sector partners across the UK and internationally and has attracted multiple research grants for evaluative studies from NIHR, European, charity and industry funders. Members of SHEC work closely with other researchers in the Department of Clinical and Experimental MedicineSurrey Clinical Trials Unit, the School of Veterinary Medicine (on a global One Health One Medicine agenda), and the wider University. SHEC leads the health and social care economics for the NIHR Research Design Service (RDS)  and the NIHR Applied Research Collaboration (ARC) in Kent, Surrey and Sussex. It has an established reputation of publishing in leading health-related journals.

This post provides the opportunity for a suitably experienced candidate to contribute significantly to the strategic development and management of SHEC. The successful candidate will be expected to attract substantial external funding to support research activity and have an outstanding track record of achievement in scholarship and research. The person appointed will contribute, where appropriate, to existing SHEC research activities, including the RDS and ARC.
