The Health Economics and Health Technology Assessment (HEHTA) Research Group (www.glasgow.ac.uk/hehta) is a fast-growing and vibrant team of multi-disciplinary researchers. We are committed to delivering research that has direct impact on clinical practice, population health, and health policies. The assessment of health interventions is one of the key areas of activity within HEHTA, this includes economic evaluation alongside trials, decision analytical modelling, evidence synthesis, medical statistics and qualitative evaluations.
We have an opportunity for a Research Assistant/Associate to make a leading contribution to research funded in the context of the Artificial Intelligence in Health and Care Award (AI Award), which is run by the Accelerated Access Collaborative (AAC) in partnership with NHSX and the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR).
Working closely with Dr Evi Germeni and the wider project team, the successful candidate will conduct a longitudinal qualitative assessment of a new AI technology that seeks to fast-track the diagnosis of suspected lung cancer patients, offering them same-day CT scans. Research will involve repeat, in-depth interviews with a range of stakeholders (e.g. patients, clinicians, administrators), to explore issues around the acceptability of the technology, as well as potential barriers to scale-up and implementation.
The successful candidate will also be expected to contribute to the formulation and submission of research publications, reports, and research proposals, as well as help manage and direct this complex and challenging project, as opportunities allow.
The post is full-time and has funding for up to 16 months.
Any further enquiries on this post may be directed to Dr Evi Germeni, [email protected]
