Postdoctoral Fellowship Positions in the Department of Health Policy and Management

Postdoctoral fellowship positions are available in the Department of Health Policy & Management in the Yale School of Public Health.  These positions are funded through the AHRQ T32 fellowship grant mechanism and funds fellows interested in questions relating to domestic U.S. healthcare and public health.  The topics covered by the fellowship are broad and largely driven by the fellow and his or her mentor(s).  Topics covered by fellows in the past have included: distribution of healthcare spending across cities and countries and its association with social determinants of health; identifying characteristics of counties that have low rates of obesity in states with high rates of obesity.

The fellowship also includes a Translating Research into Practice and Policy (TRIPP) experience, which is a 4-6 week time commitment (this will vary in time and placement as appropriate in individual cases) in which trainees become familiar with institutions and agencies that are central to the dissemination and translation of the trainee’s research into practice and policy. The TRIPP experience is planned collaboratively with the trainee, faculty advisor, and agency/organization and is designed to be pertinent to the trainees’ research and subsequent use of that research in practice and policy.

The postdoctoral fellow would work under the direction of Dr. Elizabeth Bradley (Professor, Department of Health Policy & Management, Yale School of Public Health) and other faculty members deemed appropriate.  We seek fellows who have recently graduated or will soon graduate with doctorates (Ph.D., Sc.D., D.Ph., M.D.) in economics, health policy, public health, health services research, social epidemiology, and the like.  Candidates will be selected based on substantive previous research training and research goals consistent with ongoing faculty projects. The typical duration of the postdoctoral training is 2 years, with the focus on mentored research.  Postdoctoral fellows work closely with faculty on their own research and participate in departmental research seminars.
