PhD opportunity to work on the NIHR Applied Research Collaborations (NIHR ARCs), Health Economics, Evaluation and Equality Theme (HEEE). The studentship will be based at the University of York, within the HEEE team. The closing date is 9 August and interviews take place on 4 September.
We are the PhD opportunity in one of the following three topics.
1. Older Peoples Theme. Develop a system level approach to model the economic impact of implementing interventions to prevent/improve frailty and delayed transfers of care (DTOC) for older people with complex and heterogeneous needs, explicitly recognising the supply side impact. We will also explore the equity impact of frailty interventions and implement the new E-QALY.
2. Early Life and Prevention Theme. Implement value of information methods to prioritise further data collection in existing studies focusing on evaluations for interventions in childhood obesity and healthy schools, in order to strengthen the evidence and develop methods for cross sectoral evaluation and distributional effectiveness and cost-effectiveness analysis.
3. Mental and Physical Multimorbidity Theme. Using econometric models, analyse the relationship between environmental factors, such as blue and green spaces and air quality, on mental health, utilising routine and linked data (CPRD, HES and the Mental Health Services Dataset (MHSDS)) in people with serious mental illness.
