Harvard Medical School/Brigham and Women’s Hospital Fellowship in Pharmaceutical Law and Health Services Research

The Division of Pharmacoepidemiology and Pharmacoeconomics at Brigham and Women’s Hospital Department of Medicine and Harvard Medical School invites applications for a new postdoctoral fellowship in pharmaceutical law and health services research. Areas of focus include regulation, intellectual property, ethics, and comparative effectiveness, as well as the development, approval, and evidence-based use of drugs, devices, vaccines, procedures, or diagnostics.

Applications are invited from scholars with doctoral degrees (J.D., M.D., Ph.D., Pharm.D., or equivalent) or who will complete such training by July 2013. 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 may vary depending on the candidate (min: 1 year).

The deadline is March 1, 2013. To apply, please send to akesselheim@partners.org: (1) a CV, (2) a writing sample, and (3) a cover letter describing your past work, ideas for the types of research you’d like to do in the fellowship, and career goals.

The Division of Pharmacoepidemiology and Pharmacoeconomics is a 50-member interdisciplinary research program. 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.

Email Aaron Kesselheim, M.D., J.D., M.P.H. at akesselheim@partners.org with any questions.
