The Department of Economics (part of the University’s School of Economics, Finance and Management) is seeking to appoint a Post-Doctoral Research Associate/ Senior Research Associate in Health Economics on an open ended basis with fixed funding (32 months for Senior Research Associate, 36 months for Research Associate).
