Postdoctoral Fellowship: Patient-Centered Outcomes Research

Location: University of Maryland School of Pharmacy, Baltimore, MD

Description:  An exciting postdoctoral fellowship opportunity is available at the University of Maryland Baltimore (UMB) within the School of Pharmacy’s Pharmaceutical Health Services Research (PHSR) Department. Fellowships within PHSR provide multidisciplinary, advanced training to health services researchers and clinicians and prepare fellows for positions in academia, government, the pharmaceutical industry, and consulting. Training includes, but is not limited to, mentored research, grant-writing, and teaching experiences.

We are seeking a recent or prospective doctoral graduate (PhD or equivalent qualification) with a background in large data analysis (e.g. longitudinal analysis, structural equation modeling). Having some experience working with vulnerable communities and stakeholder engagement will be a plus. The selected candidate will work directly with Dr. Villalonga-Olives and Dr. Camelo Castillo on health inequalities, patient-centered outcomes research, and pharmacoepidemiology research. The fellow will work with large datasets and engage with community partners. Duties will include, but are not limited to, data analysis, management of community-based activities, grant writing, preparing reports and presentations. The successful applicant will work in a multidisciplinary research team supported by an advanced data management and computational infrastructure to perform data analyses, develop and/or implement novel statistical methodology, and publish research results.  The incumbent will have numerous opportunities to publish first author papers and present at national meetings. 


Fellows receive a competitive salary and benefits. As a post-doctoral fellow, you will have a minimum of a one-year assignment with potential renewal based on funding.


Qualifications: PhD from a diverse set of backgrounds related to health outcomes research (i.e Public Health, Epidemiology, Sociology, Health Services Research and others) are encouraged to apply. Eligible candidates should have excellent communication skills, time-management skills, and knowledge of statistical programming in SAS. Fluency in Spanish is a plus.


How to Apply:  Applicants should submit a cover letter, curriculum vitae, writing sample, and two letters of recommendation. Review of applications will start immediately and continue until the selected candidate is identified. Finalist interviews will take place following phone screening interviews.

Exceptions to this policy will be made only as allowed by law; for example, due to bona fide occupational qualifications or lack of reasonable accommodations for disabilities. The University is committed to equal opportunity in the workplace and affirmative action to identify qualified applicants from many backgrounds and to retaining a diverse workforce. All of us benefit from the opportunity to work in an environment that brings together people from diverse backgrounds, and equal employment opportunity is essential to achieving diversity. The University prepares an annual Affirmative Action Plan aimed at developing and maintaining a broadly representative workforce. Through internal monitoring and reporting systems, the University assesses the effectiveness of its Affirmative Action Plan. The University is committed to fostering a work environment free of discrimination where respect and civility is valued. To that end, the University condemns incidents of hate crimes, intimidation, and bias. Harassment or acts of violence that are racially, ethnically, and/or otherwise motivated and which infringe on the rights and freedom of others will not be tolerated at the University's institutions or facilities. The coordination of responsibilities for the implementation and monitoring of the Affirmative Action Plan has been assigned to Sheila K. Blackshear, Administrator of Diversity, ADA and Affirmative Action in Human Resource Services, with the full support of the president, deans, and vice presidents. Although school and departmental Affirmative Action Coordinators have responsibility for implementing the Affirmative Action Plan, administrative officers involved in University employment actions also are expected to promote the principles of equal opportunity and affirmative action.
