Full Text of JOE Listing:

The Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health seeks two senior researchers for the India Health System project, a four-year large-scale study to advance India’s goal of universal health coverage—providing affordable and equitable access to good quality health care for all without major financial hardship—through rigorous research, executive training and mentoring promising junior health policy/system researchers in India. Under the direction of Winnie Yip, Professor of the Practice of International Health Policy and Economics, the work includes in-depth engagement with two states in India to conduct evidence-based assessment of health system performance and experimentation of innovative models of health financing, health care delivery, strategic purchasing and governance. A baseline (and corresponding end-line) survey of 7,500 households and providers that represent the state’s health care delivery system in both the public and private sectors, together with other routinely collected administrative data, form the base of the project’s empirical work.

The Research Scientist should have at least two year of postdoctoral research experience, and the Research Associate at least one. Please view the job descriptions and apply online: https://academicpositions.harvard.edu/postings/8716 or https://academicpositions.harvard.edu/postings/8720.
