Call for Postdoctoral Fellowship Applications
Program On Regulation, Therapeutics, And Law (PORTAL), Harvard Medical School and Brigham and Women's Hospital
Deadline: February 20, 2015
The Division of Pharmacoepidemiology and Pharmacoeconomics at Brigham and Women's Hospital Department of Medicine and Harvard Medical School invites its 2015 round of applications for postdoctoral fellows in pharmaceutical law and health services research. Current fellows have studied FDA regulation, patents and drug access and costs, and competition in the therapeutic marketplace. Other areas of focus include intellectual property, ethics, and comparative effectiveness, as well as the development, approval, and evidence-based use of drugs, devices, vaccines, procedures, and diagnostics.
Applications are invited from researchers with doctoral degrees (J.D., M.D., Ph.D., Pharm.D., or equivalent) or who will complete such training by July 2015. Fellows will have an appointment at Harvard Medical School, receive close mentorship from faculty members in the Division, and engage in one or more projects intended to start their careers in law and public health research. Fellowship length will vary depending on the candidate (min: 1year).
Please send to firstname.lastname@example.org: (1) a CV, (2) a writing sample, and (3) a cover letter describing your past work, ideas for the kind of research you'd like to do in the fellowship, and career goals. The deadline is February 20, 2015.
The Division of Pharmacoepidemiology and Pharmacoeconomics is a SO member interdisciplinary research center. Our work focuses on the evaluation, regulation, outcomes, and cost-effectiveness of prescription drugs and medical devices, as well as in the development and evaluation of policies to improve use of therapeutics.
