Project Description

This is an exceptional opportunity for a highly motivated candidate with a background in health economics, an applied health field, or economics to study for a PhD at the Norwich Medical School, University of East Anglia (UEA).

The candidate will work closely with a multidisciplinary team of researchers with a shared interest in improving the lives of people with long-term health conditions. The aim of this PhD project is to enhance our understanding of treatment burden and its impact on health-related quality of life from the perspective of people with long-term conditions and their families.

The candidate will be based with other PhD students at the Health Economics Group, Norwich Medical School. The project will provide sound research training in a range of research methods such as semi-structured interviews/focus groups, preference elicitation (such as the Discrete Choice Experiment), patient-reported outcomes, questionnaire development and administration, and statistical or data analysis. An interest in health economics and health outcomes, and/or pharmacy and medicines use, and previous experience with the management or analysis of quantitative data sets would be an advantage.

UEA is proud of its active and vibrant research culture, attracting highly qualified applicants for Postgraduate study from around the world. UEA offers a supportive environment for PhD students, with ample opportunity to participate in workshops, conferences and seminar events. Regular Postgraduate workshops host a wide range of visiting experts and speakers.
