The Opportunity

Centre for Health Economics

With research staff of over 22 economists the Centre for Health Economics is an internationally renowned institution that contributes to academic research and public policy in the economics of health and health care. The contribution of our staff is evident in quality peer reviewed publicationsfellowships and editorial roles, and in our community impact.

We are also proud of the contributions our PhD students make to the Centre and the discipline.  For more information about the Centre and the work we do, please visit our

The Centre has close links with a number of researchers in health, public economics, behavioural and experimental economics, development economics, and econometrics located in the departments of the Monash Business School at Clayton as well as the Faculty of Medicine, Nursing and Health Sciences.

The Centre for Health Economics is currently seeking an enthusiastic Research Fellow with qualifications in an economics or quantitative health related discipline to join their highly motivated Health Technology Assessment group.

The primary focus of this role will be to prepare timely and accurate assessments of submissions to the Pharmaceutical Benefits Advisory Committee (PBAC) requesting subsidy of drugs under the Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme (PBS). You will be expected to work within a multi-disciplinary team to evaluate the cost effectiveness of new drug technologies and to contribute to a wider research program in health economics.

The evaluation of PBAC submissions is cyclical in nature and you will generally have to be available during those cycles. Peak periods are from early July to late September, early November to late January and early March to late May each year. On occasion, you may be required to travel interstate to attend relevant meetings or training workshops.

As part of a wider group of researchers in the economic evaluation of health programs, you will have the opportunity to extend your skills and also to contribute to a broader range of research activities at the Centre for Health Economics including

  • the socioeconomic determinants and dynamics of health and subjective wellbeing
  • measuring quality of life, health outcomes, and social preferences
  • preferences, choice, and behaviour in health
  • the economic analysis of health services and health systems and the evaluation of health programs.

In addition, you will have an opportunity to assist teaching programs in the areas of economic evaluation of health services and health policy in general, and pharmaceuticals in particular.

This is a full-time position; however, flexible working arrangements may be negotiated.

Your application must address the selection criteria. Please refer to "How to apply for Monash Jobs"
