The Centre for Health Economics (CHE) has been at the forefront of health economics teaching and research in Australia for more than two decades. As one of the largest collective of senior health economists in Australia, it has a strong track record of health economics research, teaching and community service.
CHE is seeking a highly motivated researcher (Level B or C pending experience and qualifications) to undertake economic evaluations and Health Technology Assessments (HTA) for national health policy makers. This is an excellent opportunity for a researcher to join an experienced team of health economists, clinicians and biostatisticians in a multidisciplinary environment, to deliver high quality research with significant and immediate impact on policy.
The key role for the successful candidate will be to evaluate industry submissions to the Pharmaceutical Benefits Advisory Committee (PBAC). The PBAC is an independent expert committee that makes recommendations to the Minister for Health on whether drugs should be funded on the Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme (PBS), the Australia’s national insurance scheme and at what price.
Each evaluation produces a concise but thorough report appraising all aspects of claims made in the submission. Specific evaluation tasks include checking the completeness of literature searches; systematically extracting, analysing and critiquing scientific and clinical data from published and unpublished reports; assessing the validity and accuracy of the analyses provided in the submission, estimating the economic and financial implications associated with listing the drug on the PBS.
The successful candidate will also be expected to contribute to other research activities at the CHE and to participate in its teaching program, particularly in the areas of economic evaluation of health services and health policy.
A Level C researcher is additionally expected to exert leadership in either original research for publication or HTA reports. Experience in health technology assessment including a track record showing ability to independently appraise or conduct systematic reviews of clinical evidence and decision analytic modelling is preferred. Previous experience undertaking evaluations for PBAC or a similar HTA committee is desirable, such as the Australian Medical Services Advisory Committee (MSAC), UK’s National Institute of Clinical Excellence (NICE), the Canadian Agency for Drugs and Technologies in Health (CADTH) or similar.
The position is full time, however flexible working arrangements may be negotiated.
