About the Role As an Analyst in our Health Economics and Statistics division, you will work on projects involving the statistical analysis of data and the development of economic models, as well as the communication of the relevant methods and results to clients in a variety of formats, such as reports and slide decks.
Health economics projects involve developing economic models that determine whether interventions are good value for money and/or provide an affordable treatment option to the healthcare system. Statistics projects involve analysing patient-level clinical trial data, observational study data, real-world data and published aggregate data to answer particular questions about relevant treatments; for example, whether one treatment is more effective than another in terms of a given outcome.
When working as an Analyst on these projects, you will support the health economists who develop these models and the statisticians who analyse the data. This could involve writing up protocols and reports, searching and validating model inputs and providing input to the validity of model structures or assumptions used in statistical analysis from a clinical or scientific perspective.
You will work in project teams alongside experienced colleagues from all divisions, who provide one-to-one training on the technical aspects of the role, as well as on project management and effective client communication. Delivering project work requires close collaboration with clients and following a successful induction period you will increasingly participate in teleconferences and face-to-face meetings with external stakeholders.
Our team work on several projects at one time and the results of health economic and statistics projects can feed into publications, value materials or health technology assessment (HTA) submissions. You will therefore be exposed to a wide variety of the services offered by Costello Medical and a broad range of therapeutic areas.
