Health Economics & Financing Programme, London School of Hygiene & Tropical
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
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
