Postdoc Openings

  • Marshall J. Seidman Fellows in Health Care Policy, Harvard Medical School

    The Department of Health Care Policy at Harvard Medical School has an opening for a non-tenure-track faculty appointment as a Marshall J. Seidman Fellow. The Seidman Fellow will hold a research associate appointment in the Department of Health Care Policy.  The fellow will advance their analytic skills and publication record through informal training and extensive collaboration with Department faculty on research projects. The Fellow will also have access to unique data assets stored at the Department of Health Care Policy. The Fellow will receive dedicated mentorship from specific faculty advisors, with the expectation that their time as a Fellow will advance their career development.  The Fellow will work primarily with Professor Jose Zubizarreta on projects related to causal inference. The expectation is that this will be a two-year appointment that will prepare the Fellow for successful placement in an academic tenure-track appointment at a major research university or that will provide a candidate who has deferred an appointment with an opportunity to engage and collaborate with Harvard Faculty on high-quality research projects prior to starting their permanent position.

    Qualifications include a Ph.D. in statistics or a related field; experience in methodological research in causal inference; strong writing and oral presentation skills; and strong skills in data management and analysis, including experience with large data sets.
