Tufts CEVR Post-Doctoral Fellowship in Health Economics and Outcomes Research

Date: November 26, 2019

The Center for the Evaluation of Value and Risk in Health (CEVR) at Tufts Medical Center is pleased to announce a new post-doctoral fellowship position. This two-year fellowship program provides an excellent opportunity for the fellow to contribute to the research program at CEVR with a specific focus on developing advanced simulation or decision-analytic models (e.g., dynamic microsimulation or value of information models) and informing resource allocation decisions using the Cost-Effectiveness Analysis (CEA) Registry. The goal of the fellowship is to help prepare the fellow for a career in academia, the pharmaceutical industry, or consulting.

The fellow will be expected to lead econometric and simulation modeling projects, prepare publications for peer-reviewed journals, and present at seminars. The fellow will have protected time to develop his/her own research agenda, including preparing for a federal grant (e.g., K99/R00). Within this role, the fellow may contribute to teaching activities, such as training CEVR summer fellows.

Qualified Candidates

Candidates should have recently completed or expect to soon complete their doctorate studies with a strong research record in health policy, health economics, decision science, or a related field. Experience in biostatistics, simulation modeling, or large database analysis is strongly recommended.

Center for the Evaluation of Value and Risk in Health

The Center for the Evaluation of Value and Risk in Health (CEVR) is a member of the Institute for Clinical Research and Health Policy Studies at Tufts Medical Center, Boston. The mission of CEVR is to inform the national debate on clinical and public health policy issues and to directly influence the prioritization of healthcare resources both domestically and globally. Researchers at CEVR work on scientific research projects to advance methods development for the field, train the next generation of practitioners and users, and work with policymakers worldwide to develop reasoned policy solutions.

CEVR researchers bring experience in economics and decision analysis to a host of clinical and public health policy issues. The work encompasses formal cost-effectiveness analysis and related techniques, as well as policy research and analysis pertaining to resource allocation. CEVR’s work has enabled it to develop unique databases to help measure and communicate the clinical and economic value of health care strategies.

The fellowship provides training under the direction of David D. Kim, PhD, Program Director of the CEA Registry, along with additional mentoring from CEVR’s Director, Peter Neumann, ScD, Deputy Director, Joshua T. Cohen, PhD, and other CEVR faculty members.
