Duties will include conducting literature reviews, designing and conducting qualitative and quantitative fieldwork, analysis and writing up of findings for interim and final reports and producing papers for academic, industrial and practitioner conferences/journals.

Strong qualitative research skills and knowledge of healthcare systems are essential and knowledge of health economic methods would be an advantage.
