OFFER DESCRIPTION

 

The Kiel Institute for the World Economy (IfW; www.ifw-kiel.de) seeks a

 

a Postdoctoral Researcher (full-time) in Economics and Global Health.

 

This vacant position will be integrated in the global health research group led by Dr. Michael Stolpe. The group cooperates closely with leading medical researchers in the DFG-funded Cluster of Excellence “Precision Medicine in Chronic Inflammation” and two Leibniz Research Alliances on “Infections in an Urbanizing World” and “Resilient Ageing.”

The global health research group is currently expanding its scope with a particular focus on non-communicable and chronic diseases, health inequalities and digital health services and develops novel methods for economic evaluations of health technologies and services. The research will make use of large datasets to test and calibrate empirical models with the aim to generate evidence-based policy advice for national and international decision makers in health policy and healthcare management. Thus, excellent quantitative analytical and statistical as well as communication skills are required.

Working environment

Apart from working closely with group members at the Kiel Institute, the successful candidate will liaise with external partners and help shape the further development of the group by contributing to the development of new research projects and grant proposals.

Requirements

We are looking for a candidate who meets the following conditions:

  • She/he holds a doctorate degree in economics (or is close to completing it) or a doctorate degree in biostatistics, epidemiology or public health, ideally with a focus on health economics, economic evaluations, investment and/or decision theory and has an excellent academic record as well as the ambition to publish in high-impact peer-reviewed research journals in economics and global health.
  • The position’s primary focus will be on empirical research, with a thematic focus on chronic diseases, health investments and medical decision making. Thus, interest and experience in empirical applications of economic theory, the analysis of large health data sets and health economic modelling are desirable.
  • The candidate should have experience and/or familiarity with quantitative methods used in micro-econometrics and/or biostatistics. In addition, the candidate should be interested in developing proposals for health policy reform.
  • The working language is English; excellent English skills are therefore required. Some knowledge of German would be useful, but is not essential.
  • The successful candidate should be acquainted with relevant software, such as STATA, R, TreeAge and Matlab.

The position will be based in Kiel and is initially funded for three years, starting on October 1st, 2022. The salary will be based on the German public sector pay scale at grade EG 13 TV-L. The position is full-time, but a reduction of working time can in principle be negotiated. After successful internal evaluation, there is the option of extension for a further three years.

The Kiel Institute is an equal opportunity employer with a certified family-friendly policy (http://www.ifw-kiel.de/about-us/equal-opportunity-at-the-kiel-institute/). We promote the professional opportunities of women and strongly encourage them to apply. Women with equivalent qualifications, competence and expertise will be given preference.
