Current opportunities

  • We wish to recruit highly motivated and qualified economists with particular strengths in health economics, including the economics of health technology assessment, health care systems, and/or the life sciences industry.

    We are particularly interested in strengthening the areas of:

    • Health econometrics and real-world evidence
    • Market access and policy
    • Industrial Organisation and Microeconomics of health and pharmaceutical markets
    • Patient Reported Outcomes
    • Stated Preference techniques such as Discrete Choice Experiments
    • Economic modelling, including cost-effectiveness analysis
    • Impact evaluation of health care and health policy interventions in High-, Low-, and Middle-Income countries

    The economist will contribute to all three of the OHE’s core activities:

    • peer-reviewed research
    • research consultancy

    OHE’s work covers a broad range of analyses into the economics and policy of four related areas:

    • measuring and valuing outcomes – for example, valuing health using stated preference techniques such as discrete choice experiments
    • judging value for money and improving decision-making – for example, assessing the value of health care through the use of cost-effectiveness thresholds
    • incentivising quality – for example, assessing how incentives, payments and reimbursement mechanisms can influence quality, behaviours and performance or the effect of digital healthcare technologies on health outcomes
    • economics of innovation – for example, understanding how new pricing models can affect innovation and speed up patient benefit

    The main purpose of the economist’s role is to undertake and present analyses on topics in one or more of our areas of specialism. This involves working with OHE colleagues, academic collaborators, and other clients and with external stakeholders.

Equal opportunities

In accordance with the Equal Opportunities Act 2010, OHE wholeheartedly supports the principle of equal opportunities and dignity at work. We believe passionately that employing a diverse workforce is central to our success and we value the differences that a diverse workforce brings. We oppose all forms of discrimination against employees, members, customers,  stakeholders,  job applicants, suppliers and members of the public on the grounds of the following “protected characteristics”; gender, gender reassignment, sexual orientation, marital/civil partnership status, pregnancy/maternity, religion, religious belief, age, disability or race (which includes colour, nationality, ethnic or national origins).

Employees should not discriminate against, harass or victimise another colleague, customer, stakeholder, supplier, a job applicant, or any third party or any member of the public on the grounds of any of the protected characteristics listed above.

We believe that it is in the OHE’s best interest and that of all those who work for us to ensure that the working environment is fair and inclusive and  encourages all employees to fulfil their potential, based on performance and ability.

Every possible step will be taken therefore to ensure that individuals are treated equally and fairly and that decisions relating to recruitment, selection, appraisal, terms and conditions of employment, training, promotion, career management and employment termination are based solely on objective and job related criteria.
