OHE is Recruiting for Two Economists

OHE wishes to recruit two well-qualified, highly motivated and energetic economists, with particular strengths in the economics of health technology assessment, health care systems and/or the life sciences industry. 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's scope is international and our client portfolio spans all three sectors: public, private and charitable. Our 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
  • economics of innovation – for example, understanding how new models of innovation can help streamline development, reduce costs and speed patient benefit

The main purpose of the economist role is to undertake and present analyses on topics in one or more of our areas of specialism in all three core OHE activities, i.e. research, consultancy, and advice to the ABPI. This involves working with OHE colleagues, academic collaborators, the ABPI and other clients, and with external stakeholders.

Candidates must have:

  • a good first degree, majoring in economics, or
  • a postgraduate qualification in economics or health economics;
  • thorough knowledge of the application of economics to at least one of the four areas of specialism described above;
  • practical experience of research and/or consulting;
  • demonstrable ability to research, write and present clearly argued analyses in fluent English within tight deadlines.
