This position requires demonstrated ability to conduct scholarly research and obtain peer-reviewed funding. Applicants must have a PhD in health economics, health services research, or a closely related field. The ideal candidate should have research interests and expertise in applied research in areas including, but not limited to, health economics, economic evaluation, and health policy analysis.

The mission of the Institute for Healthcare Studies at the Feinberg School of Medicine is to be the home for health services and outcomes research by coordinating, originating, and promoting, inter-disciplinary, multi-departmental research and education for the purpose of improving safety, quality, equity, effectiveness and policy of healthcare.

Six centers support the vision and mission of the Institute for Healthcare Studies through focused and collaborative research: Center for Healthcare Equity, Health Economics Center, Center for Maternal-Child Healthcare, Chronic Disease Care and Outcomes Center, Center in Health Policy and Implementation and the NU Center for Healthcare Quality and Safety Innovation.

As a group, the five centers are complementary and provide a context for investigators to work together to affect change in local, national, and global health and healthcare policy.
