King's College London 

Research Associate in Disease Prevention Modelling

The Division of Health and Social Care Research comprises 50 Principal Investigators working in the Evaluation, Health Services and Policy Research Group as part of an Academic Health Sciences Centre. The Research Group reflects the disciplinary richness of the College as a whole, in spanning an exceptional academic range (from clinical strengths in primary care, public health, nursing and midwifery, to disciplinary expertise in management, health policy, gerontology, social work and social studies of science). The division website is at: www.kcl.ac.uk/hscr

We currently have an exciting opportunity to join the Department working on a study funded by the National Prevention Research Initiative (NPRI). This post offers an exciting opportunity to join a multi-disciplinary research team working on a novel research project to model the long-term costs and outcomes of lifestyle disease prevention interventions in primary care. The project aims to understand the potential long-term effects of interventions to modify diet and physical activity in primary care. The project will construct a model of the long-term costs and outcomes of interventions in primary care. The model will be informed by systematic literature reviews to provide evidence of intervention effectiveness. Key inputs to the model, including measures of disease occurrence, will be obtained through analysis of electronic patient records from primary care, contained in the General Practice Research Database (GPRD). A Markov model will be constructed with the aim of providing researchers and health decision-makers with estimates of the cost-effectiveness of implementing long-term pragmatic behavioural interventions to modify diet and exercise in primary care. You will contribute to systematic reviews, and analysis of GPRD data, as well as leading the development and evaluation of the disease prevention model.

You will have strong quantitative skills in health economics and/or epidemiology and/or medical statistics, experience in using statistical packages such as Stata and experience using modelling software including Excel or TreeAge, as well as excellent written and oral communication skills and experience of research. You will understand the principles of health economic evaluation and will have knowledge and experience of modelling techniques.

The research will be suitable either for candidates who wish to pursue postdoctoral research or who wish to register for a PhD. The research will be implemented in collaboration with the London School of Economics.

Contract Type: The post is available for three years

The post is available for three years. Starting salary will be 32,917 per annum, inclusive of London Allowance.

Closing date: 30 November 2009.
