Health Economics & Financing Programme, London School of Hygiene & Tropical 
Medicine
Malaria is one of the world's worst public health problems, affecting 
approximately 40 per cent of the world's population, and causing 300 to 500 
million infections and around 1 million deaths each year, most in the poorest 
region, sub-Saharan Africa. Efforts to support malaria control are being 
rapidly scaled up, increasing the demand for high quality research. 

The Health Economics and Financing Programme, directed by Professor Anne Mills, 
is an internationally recognised centre of expertise in health economics and 
policy analysis, with a strong track record of high quality, policy- relevant 
research in low income countries. As a result of a recent grant award, we are 
expanding our team through the recruitment of 2 posts in pharmaceutical policy 
/ economics.

Research Fellow in Pharmaceutical Policy/ Economics (2 posts) (Reference HEFP4)
We are seeking two enthusiastic Research Fellows to join the Health Economics 
and Financing Programme to work on ACTwatch (www.actwatch.info), a project to 
study markets for antimalarial drugs in 8 low- and middle income countries.  
The post holders will be expected to contribute to methodological development, 
help manage the research project, lead study teams in the field, and 
participate in data analysis and dissemination.  

We are looking for candidates with a background in pharmaceutical policy, 
health economics or health services research in low and middle income countries 
and an ability to communicate results through academic publications and other 
media.  The posts will involve substantial overseas travel, and will involve 
some teaching at LSHTM and the further development of research in this field.  
The project is supported by a grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.

One post is full-time for three years and the second is full-time for one year. 
  Salary will be in the range £33,542 - £38,084 according to qualifications and 
experience and will be subject to LSHTM terms and conditions.  Closing date for 
applications is 30 May 2008.  Interviews will take place on 12 June 2008.  
Please quote reference HEFP4.
