PPP Healthcare Medical Trust


The University is seeking to make applications to the PPP Healthcare Medical Trust for their proposed Professorships in Health Economics and Learning Disability, and now seeks candidates around whom to develop such applications.

Health Economics

It is expected that a candidate, if successful, will join the Judge Institute of Management Studies and work in close association with the Clinical School and the Institute of Public Health. Candidates will have an appropriate record of academic achievement and a strong interest in health economic applications in public policy and business performance.

Informal enquiries may be made to Professor Don Detmer, Dennis Gillings Professor of Health Management (tel. 01223 339754, e-mail d.detmer@jims.cam.ac.uk), or Professor Sandra Dawson, Director of the Judge Institute (tel. 01223 339590, e-mail s.dawson@jims.cam.ac.uk).

Learning Disability

It is expected that the candidate, if successful, will be based in the Department of Psychiatry in the School of Clinical Medicine. They will have the opportunity to enhance existing strong links within the School and throughout the University, such as those with the Institute of Criminology, the Institute of Public Health, Psychology, Genetics, and associated research institutes such as the MRC Cognitive and Brain Sciences Unit. There are close working relations with colleagues in Education and the NHS, including child and adolescent mental health, forensic services, and youth offending teams. Applications are invited from candidates with an appropriate record of academic achievement in Learning Disabilities and a strong interest in interdisciplinary research. Arrangements for an honorary clinical contract will be made for suitably qualified candidates. The successful candidate will lead the further development of the application to the PPP Healthcare Trust.

Informal enquiries may be made to Professor Peter Jones, Head of the Department of Psychiatry (tel. 01223 336960, e-mail pbj21@cam.ac.uk).

Further information for both Professorships may be obtained from the Deputy Secretary General of the Faculties, General Board Division, University Offices, The Old Schools, Cambridge, CB2 1TT (e-mail ibise@admin.cam.ac.uk), to whom a letter of application, marked 'Confidential', including details of current and future research plans, a curriculum vitae, and a publications list should be sent, together with the names of two referees, so as to reach him not later than Friday, 16 February 2001.
