Call for Postdoctoral Fellowship Applications:
The Harvard Medical School/Brigham and Women’s Hospital Program On
Regulation, Therapeutics, And Law (PORTAL)

The Division of Pharmacoepidemiology and Pharmacoeconomics at Brigham and
Women’s Hospital Department of Medicine and Harvard Medical School invites
its 2016 round of applications for postdoctoral fellows in pharmaceutical
law and health services research. Current fellows have studied FDA
regulation, patents, 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 2016. 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: 1 year).

The deadline is February 19, 2016. To apply, please send to
akesselheim at partners.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 Division of Pharmacoepidemiology and Pharmacoeconomics is a 50‐member
interdisciplinary research center. Our work focuses on the evaluation,
regulation, outcomes, and cost‐effectiveness of prescription drugs and
medical devices, as well as the development and evaluation of policies to
improve use of therapeutics. Further information is at www.DrugEpi.org
<http://www.drugepi.org/>. E‐mail Aaron Kesselheim, M.D., J.D., M.P.H. at
akesselheim at partners.org with any questions.

Brigham and Women's Hospital and Harvard Medical School are Equal
Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employers; women and members of
underrepresented minority groups are strongly encouraged to apply.​
