4-year position modelling the impact and cost-effectiveness of interventions to prevent drug-related deaths in Scotland

The post will involve leading mathematical modelling on EPHESUS (Evaluating the Public Health Impact of Interventions for the Prevention of Drug-related Deaths in the Population: in Scotland) - a newly funded 4-year NIHR Public Health Research (PHR) project. EPHESUS aims to evaluate the population-level impact of existing and novel interventions for the prevention of drug-related deaths in Scotland. The project combines a series of policy-relevant statistical analyses of linked health data with development of an individual based model that simulates trends in drug-related deaths and estimates impact and cost-effectiveness of interventions. You will be involved in the technical aspects of the modelling analyses. You will collaborate with other members of the team involved in this project, including statisticians (at Glasgow Caledonian University - GCU) leading the statistical analyses, health economists (GCU) undertaking cost estimation, and patient and public involvement (PPI) co-leads (Scottish Drugs Forum and University of Bristol). You will also be involved in dissemination of model findings with Public Health Scotland and other key stakeholders. There may also be the opportunity to collaborate on other projects which focus on infectious disease modelling or modelling of drug-related deaths in other settings. It is hoped that you will also start developing your own research portfolio through contributing to grant applications.
