Job description

Job summary


The Department of Surgery and Cancer and the Institute of Global Health Innovation (IGHI) are seeking a Senior Lecturer in Health Economics in an exciting move to expand the research and education output in health economics. The candidate will contribute to the development of the portfolio of methodological and applied research in health economics and behavioural economics and will provide health economics expertise to multi-disciplinary projects. Areas of interest include health technology assessment, empirical policy evaluation, Big Data Analytics in Economics, digital health, patient safety and quality improvement. The candidate will join a dynamic, multidisciplinary team based in the Centre for Health Policy, in collaboration with the IGHI’s other key centres, including the Hamlyn Centre, HELIX Centre and the NIHR Imperial Patient Safety Translational Research Centre (PSTRC). The team of policy makers, clinicians, scientists, engineers and industrial designers, at these cutting-edge centres are focused on developing innovative processes, products and business models across surgical robotics and technology, healthcare design and policy formation. In conjunction with other leading academics across these centres, the candidate will produce high-impact and globally pertinent research outputs and innovations that strive to sustain and raise the international profile of IGHI and the Centre for Health Policy.



The Centre for Health Policy aims to promote innovative evidence-based policies among decision-makers worldwide. Often performed alongside government or industry partners, the Centre's applied policy analysis work concentrates on improving the quality of the evidence base available to policymakers grappling with specific health policy problems. This applied policy analysis seeks to bridge the gap between researchers and policymakers and to translate academic evidence into actionable proposals.


Duties and responsibilities

The key roles for the Senior Lecturer position are:
• Publication of high-impact methodological and applied health economics research
• Contribute to and help shape the wider Economic Theme within the Centre for Health Policy and the PSTRC
• Teach health economics and economic evaluation on the Masters in Health Policy and other relevant taught programs
• Supervise PhD and Masters students

The appointee will be expected to drive forward a research programme in health policy, patient safety and health services research with a focus on economics. This programme would be designed to syndicate and work in close partnership with key IGHI researchers and teams including those of the Big Data Analytical Unit (BDAU) and the Patient Safety Translational Research Centre (PSTRC). Expertise in economic evaluation, big data analytics and health technology assessment is strongly preferred for this role.


Essential requirements

All members of academic staff are expected to be active in research, publishing papers in leading journals, attending conferences, supervising research students and obtaining funding to support their students and research activities. The appointees will be expected to have a proven track record in such activities.



These posts will involve the usual administrative duties associated with a busy academic and research active environment and the appointees will be expected to enhance the academic standing of the Department of Surgery and Cancer.


Further information

Imperial College is supportive of flexible working. The recruiting Department are happy to discuss the possibility of implementing such arrangements for this post, with suitably qualified people subject to operational requirements.
