A number of exciting opportunities are currently available across the country. Apply now, to work with Australian Genomics, or in roles with our partners.

Research Assistant / Research Fellow, Health Economics

The University of Melbourne seeks a health economist to join its Centre for Health Policy to work on a variety of applied and methodological projects involving Australian Genomics.

These projects include economic evaluations alongside Australian Genomics clinical Flagship studies in areas such as mitochondrial disorders, developmental disabilities, lung diseases, neonatal intensive care and cancer, contingent valuation and discrete choice modelling methods. There will also be opportunities to contribute to health policy decisions of the Australian Government, through applications by Australian Genomics to the Medical Services Advisory Committee, and to undertake additional complementary health economic research in the context of genomics.

The position will require postgraduate qualifications in health economics, or in economics with a demonstrated interest in health-related research. A track record in conducting research leading to peer review publications is highly desirable. Given the nature of the research, strong quantitative research skills are required such as a major in econometrics or statistics.

Working as part of research team, you will be expected to support, develop and manage a program of health economics research under direction from A/Prof Kim Dalziel (Deputy Director) and Dr Ilias Goranitis (Genomics lead).

The position will be based both at the Centre for Health Policy within the Melbourne School of Population and Global Health, and the Murdoch Children’s Research Institute.

Applications close on 29th July 2018.
