Economists – Research and Consultancy

The Office of Health Economics ( wishes to recruit well-qualified, highly motivated and energetic junior economists, with particular strengths in health economics, including the economics of health technology assessment, health care systems and/or the life sciences industry.  

The Office of Health Economics is particularly interested in strengthening the areas of:  

  • Health econometrics and real-world evidence
  • Industrial organisation and microeconomics of health and pharmaceutical markets
  • Patient reported outcomes
  • Stated preference techniques such as discrete choice experiments
  • Impact evaluation of health care and health policy interventions in high, low, and middle-income countries 

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

  • Peer-reviewed research
  • Consultancy
  • Advising the Association of the British Pharmaceutical Industry (ABPI)

OHE is a London-based, not-for-profit, economic research and consultancy organisation, founded in 1962. Our scope is international and our client portfolio spans all three sectors: public, private and charitable. OHE’s work covers a broad range of analyses into the economics and policy of four related areas:

  2. Judging value for money and improving decision making: for example, assessing the value of health care through the use of cost-effectiveness thresholds    
  3. Incentivising quality: for example, assessing how incentives, payments and reimbursement mechanisms can influence quality, behaviours and performance
  4. Economics of innovation: for example, understanding how new models of innovation can help streamline development, reduce costs and speed patient benefit
