Job description

Job summary

Salary: Advanced Research Fellow (£56,321 – £66,700);

Senior Research Fellow (in excess of £69,080)

The Centre for Health Economics & Policy Innovation (CHEPI) was established in 2017 and is currently one of the largest and most active research centres at Imperial College Business School. CHEPI’s mission is to research incentives and environments that encourage individuals and organisations to make health-enhancing decisions. CHEPI is currently participating in over 13 large scale funded research projects involving faculty across Imperial College London and other leading academic institutions.

To complement our existing faculty, researcher and student base, CHEPI is seeking to appoint an Advanced or Senior Research Fellow in Health Economics to lead and contribute to a number of multi-disciplinary research projects run by the Centre, requiring the use of a variety of economic analysis approaches and skills. Examples of the projects in which the appointed candidate may work include the following, all of which are in collaboration with Imperial College’s Faculty of Medicine and School of Public Health.

Children’s Places is a project funded by the Health Foundation aiming to explore how the health of secondary school children (aged 11 to 19) is influenced by the characteristics of the physical and virtual places in which they spend their time. The project involves assessing the relationship between measures of human capital and place-based economic and social outcomes building on theories and empirical evidence of human capital spill overs.

Public Health Impacts of UK’s Clean Air Zones is a project funded by the MRC aimed at exploring the health and health economic impacts of clean air zones in the UK, particularly in London and Birmingham. Researchers based at CHEPI will be responsible for identifying a suitable framework and measures for quantifying the economic aspects of these outcomes. Key dimensions include effects on individual welfare and productivity, impacts on businesses through changes in transport and consumption behaviours.

The work of the fellow will not be limited to these projects and it is expected the successful candidate will invest considerable time in supporting the development of CHEPI through advising research staff in the centre and leading the development of research grant applications, which can also be used to extend the duration of the fellow’s contract.

This full-time post will commence in January 2021 for a fixed term, but with a view to establishing a path for extending the duration of the appointment beyond the initial term, if the goals of the appointment are accomplished, and a career progression path in line with the longer-term aspirations of the appointee. The successful candidate will be based at Imperial College Business School, South Kensington with day to day supervision being provided by Prof. Franco Sassi (Director of CHEPI) & Dr Jack Olney (Manager of CHEPI).
