The Research Investments in Global Health study is recruiting!
Research Fellow in infectious disease research investment analyses
Location: Southampton General Hospital
Salary: £28,695 to £35,256
Full Time Fixed Term
Closing Date: Friday 28 August 2015
We wish to appoint a (non-laboratory) Research Fellow in infectious disease research investment analyses. The ResIn team (as of October 2015) will be led by Dr Stuart Clarke and based within the University of Southampton at Southampton General Hospital. The project has been awarded funding from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to collate funding data from the G20 countries relating to infectious diseases (in particular pneumonia and neonatal infection research) and to assess how much funding is awarded to each disease area, how well investment correlates with the burden of disease and to measure the impact and outputs of research.
This post provides an exciting opportunity for someone with an interest in infectious disease research. It will also be of interest to those who would enjoy building tools and analyses that will be useful in informing the decisions and priority-setting of high-ranking policymakers (e.g. the World Health Organisation), the world’s leading biomedical and health research funders, and individual research institutions, groups and societies and researchers.
Applications are invited from those with an interest in infectious diseases, health policy or disease burden measurement. Relevant experience of a systematic and detailed approach to carrying out research projects is essential.
