The Saw Swee Hock School of Public Health (SSHSPH) at the National University of Singapore (NUS) is seeking a postdoctoral research fellow to assist in a study on the use of preemptive pharmacogenotyping (PGx) in Singapore. The objective of this study is to identify the optimal patient selection strategy and multiplex gene panel composition for cost-effective use of preemptive PGx. Results will be used to inform policy making, reimbursement decisions and communication strategies on preemptive PGx. Successful candidates will be appointed on a 24-month contract.
Construct economic models to identify drivers of cost-effectiveness of implementing preemptive PGx versus doing nothing
Explore analyses across different time horizons and cohorts
Compare the results from different models, e.g. discrete event simulation vs. Markov cohort models
Possess a PhD in a related field such as Biostatistics/ Engineering/ Economics/ Pharmacy/ Public Health
Experience in choice modelling is essential
First author publication(s) in reputable international journal(s).
About Saw Swee Hock School of Public Health, National University of Singapore
Building upon more than 60 years of experience in research, training and practice in epidemiology and public health, the Saw Swee Hock School of Public Health (SSHSPH), National University of Singapore, was established in October 2011 as Singapore’s first and only full-fledged national public health tertiary education institution. The School is also a member of the National University Health System (NUHS).
The School aims to continually foster healthier communities in Singapore and the region, and impact public health programmes and policies through its robust educational programmes and translational cross-disciplinary research work on cohort studies and life course epidemiology, infectious disease research, health technology assessments, health promotion, workplace safety and health, health systems evaluation and health services research. An interdisciplinary approach, augmented by rigorous training, applicable research and regional partnerships, places SSHSPH at the forefront of public health knowledge discovery and practice in Asia.
The School actively collaborates with many partners including the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, Karolinska Institutet, Harva...rd School of Public Health and University of Michigan School of Public Health. Its flagship programme, the Master of Public Health (MPH) degree, attracts students from a wide range of disciplines from within Singapore and throughout the region.
