Postdoctoral position

The IUMSP at the University of Lausanne is collaborating with Imperial College London, The University of Edinburgh and the think-thank Institute for Public Policy Research (IPPR) on a large project funded by the Health Foundation aimed at investigating the efficiency of care delivery at the end of life, using patient-level routinely collected data from England and Scotland. The project will explore the trajectories of health care utilisation and costs in the last months of life and will measure intensity and appropriateness of end-of-life care. It will also build a microsimulation model to measure potential efficiency gains of scaling-up evidence-based palliative care at the national level.

The position is based at IUMSP, Lausanne. The postholder will work with Prof. Joachim Marti from the IUMSP as well as with researchers at Imperial College and at the University of Edinburgh as well as IPPR, and he/she will be central to the coordination of the research project. At the IUMSP, he/she will be working in an inter-disciplinary environment and integrated within a team of health economists that work amongst colleagues specialised in public health, epidemiology, biostatistics and health services research.
