You will hold an MSc in health economics (or other closely related subject) and will have previous experience analysing resource use, cost or outcomes data. You will also have strong quantitative and excellent time management skills, allowing for the timely delivery of outputs for several projects at the same time. Experience using R, Strata or equivalent software packages, working with large routinely-collected data sets and experience estimating regression models would be desirable.
