Employer: Institute for Clinical and Economic Review (ICER)
Deadline: Posting will remain open until filled.
Under direction of the Director of Health Economics, the health economist is responsible for two distinct work streams. The first involves acting as the key liaison with ICER’s growing network of academically‐based modeling groups on a project‐by‐project basis. Responsibilities include reviewing and editing key deliverables throughout the project timeline, including scoping materials, presentations, and reports; ensuring collaborator adherence to milestones and timelines; liaising with manufacturers and other stakeholders to triage input and organize responses to issues raised; assisting in identification and use of data and literature sources for model estimation and other activities; and conducting rigorous internal review of assumptions, parameters, functions, and operations to ensure model robustness. The health economist will also lead, on a project basis, the development and specification of a budgetary impact model that will be based in part on inputs received from the modeling collaborators.
The second work stream will involve explicitly conceptualizing, specifying, and testing economic models developed internally at ICER to assess the potential costs, cost‐effectiveness and/or budgetary impact of a wide range of diagnostic, prognostic, therapeutic and other clinical interventions. The health economist will also, with guidance from the director of health economics, be responsible for developing all oral and written presentations of the model, and participating in all stakeholder interactions and public deliberations involved in each project.
