Assistant Professor in TB Health Economics and Modelling

We have an opening for an enthusiastic and self-motivated Assistant Professor in Health Economics to join a world leading group of tuberculosis epidemiologist and modellers ( to work on a set of exciting health economics projects around treatment adherence and TB burden.

Currently, all individuals receiving TB treatment have to regularly report to a health clinic to receive drugs, which for a lot of individuals contributes little to improving treatment adherence, yet leads to costs for both patient and provider. Part of this role is to lead on health system and patient cost data collection and cost-effectiveness modelling as part of a trial on introducing new mobile adherence technologies in Ethiopia and other LMIC countries (UNITAID-ASCENT, LSHTM-lead Finn McQuaid, Rein Houben). In addition, the association between poverty and TB burden has been well-known for centuries, but remains poorly quantified. The post-holder will have the opportunity to contribute to a statistical analysis of macro- and household socio-economic indicators and TB burden in Viet Nam, as part of a larger grant looking at TB natural history (ERC-TBornotTB, PI Rein Houben).
