The University of Sydney
Full-time, fixed-term contract for 5 years
The university is seeking to employ a Level B Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Health Economics to join the newly appointed research team conducting work within the Australian Research Council funded Laureate Project on the National Disability Insurance Scheme.
The Laureate project aims to address serious deficits in the operation of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) for one of its largest participant groups: people with severe mental illness, which is termed psychosocial disability by the NDIS. This project will work in partnership with the National Disability Insurance Agency, who run the NDIS, to develop new data and evidence on scheme outcomes, performance, cost-effectiveness and participant experiences to develop an appropriate and implementable program logic to improve supports for this group. Expected outcomes will be scheme reform by implementing a new framework of supports for psychosocial disability and data to improve the operation of national policy for this group more broadly. This should provide significant benefits for the cost-effective operation of the NDIS and build research capacity in disability policy through supporting three new postdoctoral research fellow positions and three new PhD students. The project is supported by a budget to enable data collection across Australia, travel to conferences and international institutions, open-access publications and dissemination events.
