Call For Application – One year Postdoctoral Fellowship 2014-2015, Health economics
Paris School of Economics (PSE) is inviting applications for a one-year postdoctoral fellowship starting in September 2014. Hospinnomics, PSE’s newly endowed chair in health economics, aims at encouraging research on organisational and technological innovation in health care systems. The research themes are structured around care pathways, which include hospital stays, both from an efficiency and equity perspective. The objective is to encourage high quality policy-oriented research (with academic publications in peer-reviewed journals) and to contribute towards increasingly evidence-based decisions (with clear incentives to reconcile research and decision making).
Topics of interest will include organisational changes (optimal payment schemes, information & incentive schemes, new production modes such as task delegation, teamwork, telemedicine, individual patient data management), as well as methodological contributions to the economic assessment of new technologies (drugs, procedures and medical devices).
Applicants must show outstanding achievement in their education and they must either hold a Ph.D in economics prior to September 2014 or with a planned defense before the end of 2014, from an institution that provides a high level of training in economics. Applicants should have a strong motivation for health economics.
The monthly gross salary is of 2500/3000€.
Applications are open both to French and to non-French nationals. Knowledge of French is not necessary. Your application should include:
- A detailed CV (education, background, internships, research projects, etc.)
- A letter of motivation
- A transcript of grades obtained
- In addition, two reference letters should be sent directly by their authors.
The names of the files have to be MynameCV.pdf, MynameProject.pdf, Mynamegrades.pdf.
