Permanent senior modelling post in antimicrobial resistance and healthcare associated infections (salary £51,163- £61,976 per annum)

An exciting opportunity has arisen for an individual with strong analytical expertise to lead on innovative modelling projects, exploring the dynamics and evaluating the control of antimicrobial resistant (AMR) organisms and healthcare associated infections (HCAI) to inform policy in this high priority area.

The post-holder will lead the development and use of AMR and HCAI models within multiple modelling and health economics research projects, conducting innovative research required to identify and rigorously evaluate solutions and inform health policy. The projects led and coordinated by the post-holder will develop and use novel methodologies to gain insight from data to improve our understanding of the epidemiology and economic implications of AMR and HCAI. Research will include effectiveness and cost-effectiveness evaluations of prevention and control strategies. The research is expected to provide practical and clinically relevant insights to directly inform national policy.

The post requires skills necessary to lead on multiple collaborative projects, and is likely to involve management and supervision of other AMR and HCAI modellers within the team. The successful applicant will work closely with clinicians, epidemiologists and microbiologists as well as modellers, economists, statisticians, bioinformaticians, both at PHE and collaborating academic institutions, with strong links to leading universities.

This post provides an ideal opportunity to join a team of modellers and health economists conducting research to inform policy in this high profile and high priority area. The post will be based in the Modelling and Economics Unit in PHE’s National Infection Service (NIS) in Colindale, an internationally-renowned centre of excellence for expertise, reference and research, surveillance and epidemiology in relation to human health. It is an excellent place to conduct public health research that can help shape policy both nationally and internationally.
