The German Cancer Research Center is the largest biomedical research institution in Germany. With approximately 2,900 employees, we operate an extensive scientific program in the field of cancer research.
The Division of Health Economics is seeking to fill

A new scientific unit for health economics was established by the DKFZ effective January 2017. Located on the biomedical campus in Heidelberg, it is embedded in a highly attractive environment offering a broad spectrum of opportunities for interdisciplinary collaborations. Beyond excellent research conditions, the DKFZ and the University of Heidelberg offer an international and collegial scientific environment and access to state-of-the-art core facilities.
Consistent with the preeminent role of the DKFZ in the field of cancer research, the health economics team will be committed to making significant policy-relevant contributions to our understanding of the economic implications of cancer. The health economics unit will be dedicated to the study of the costs and benefits, including cost benefit, cost effectiveness, and social cost value analyses of malignant diseases and of health care interventions.
We are seeking now both junior and experienced candidates, ideally with a Ph.D. in economics or a related social sciences field (as a minimum, with a relevant master’s degree), with an emphasis in applications of

b) operations research methods and decision analytic modeling (such as multi-criteria decision analysis, Bayesian analysis, Markov models, discrete event simulation)
c) statistical data analysis (including management of complex databases), and/or
d) preference measurement techniques (such as discrete choice experiments, time trade-off, standard gamble, qualitative and quantitative survey methods).

Depending on your research focus, you will be familiar with at least some of the following technical tools: SQL databases, SAS, Stata, Eviews, SPSS, DATA TreeAge, PubMed / embase.
We will offer you an opportunity to learn and grow your skillset by owning the following scientific tasks
assist with, oversee, initiate or conduct studies in one or more of the fields mentioned above (for example, cost of illness studies, cost benefit / cost effectiveness / cost value analyses, utility and preference measurement)
prepare near-final or final drafts of study protocols, basic report sections, reports, and manuscripts
maintain familiarity with current scientific literature, co-author and author presentations for scientific conferences and manuscripts for scientific journals
