Applications are invited for a Senior Health Economist (based in NCTU, School of Medicine).

The role holder will be accountable to the Professor of Health Economics, Professor Marilyn James, and will work with colleagues across the School of Medicine (SoM) and with external research partners.

We are inviting applications for a Senior Health Economist, experienced in conducting economic evaluations alongside clinical trials, to be part of leading and developing our portfolio in health economics. This new role has been created as part of continued expansion of the unit and the health economics team. It offers an excellent opportunity for those looking to advance their career to the next step, further developing analytical and leadership skills in health economics and supporting the growth of early career colleagues.

Nottingham Clinical Trials Unit (NCTU) is fully registered with the UK Clinical Research Collaboration and is based in the School of Medicine at the University of Nottingham.  Our unit is committed to conducting top quality, high impact multicentre clinical and economic evaluation trials across a wide range of health topics and settings, including orthopaedics, ophthalmology, adult and children’s mental health, stroke, rehabilitation, and others. Results from our research is published in high impact journals.

Creation of a health economics team within the NCTU at Nottingham presents an opportunity to fully embed in an established academic clinical trials unit, whilst maintaining a clear health economic identity. In addition to collaborating on large randomised trials, the team will pursue topical research issues in health economics such as outcomes and the translation of health economics into health related areas. The post will enable career development and the chance to work with both health economists and experts in all aspects of clinical trials. The candidate must have the ability to communicate well with researchers who have little or no knowledge of health economics.

The post is offered on a fixed-term contract for a period of 24 months. Hours of work are 36.25 hours per week; however, applications are invited from candidates wishing to work part-time (minimum of 29 hours per week). Please indicate on your application the hours you wish to work. 

Informal enquiries may be addressed to Marilyn James, tel: 0115 8231600 or email Please note that applications sent directly to this email address will not be accepted.
