The demand for healthcare steadily increases, importantly as a result of new technologies, rising expectations and the ageing of the population. The available budget for healthcare, however, is limited and therefore policymakers need to decide which interventions to fund and which not to fund. Economic evaluations are used to inform policymakers whether interventions provide sufficient value for money. In this context, measuring and valuing the full benefits of healthcare interventions is important, but also challenging. The Department of Health Economics of Erasmus School of Health Policy & Management (ESHPM) has acquired a number of new projects in this area and therefore seeks a highly motivated PhD student to contribute to a selection of these projects.
The PhD candidate will conduct research and write academic papers on a number of relevant topics in the context of the measurement and valuation of the benefits of healthcare. These topics include, but are not limited to:
The PhD candidate will be supervised by prof. Werner Brouwer and prof. Job van Exel, in collaboration with others.
Fixed-term contract: 4 years.
