Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Cancer Care Delivery - Fred Hutch

Wed, 17 Aug 2016 00:00:00 GMT

We currently have a 2-year postdoctoral position available through the Cancer Prevention Department. The National Cancer Institute, as part of its NCI Community Oncology Research Network (NCORP), recently launched a program dedicated to Cancer Care Delivery Research (CCDR). This program encompasses a multidisciplinary field of scientific investigation, fusing health services research and statistical methods to examine how social factors, financing systems, organizational structures and processes, health technologies, and healthcare provider and individual behaviors affect cancer outcomes, access to and quality of care, cancer care costs, and the health and well-being of cancer patients and survivors.


SWOG is a national cancer clinical trials consortium, with a prominent and growing program in cancer care delivery research alongside its treatment and prevention programs. Candidates should have an interest in the investigation of novel research questions through the strategic linkage of independent datasets (i.e. “big data”) as well as in the design of prospective trials to examine cancer care delivery research questions.


The fellowship is under the direction of Dr. Joseph Unger within the Division of Public Health Sciences. Dr. Unger’s research program includes income disparities in access and outcome within cancer treatment trials; late effects of cancer treatment; the population impact and diffusion of cancer clinical trial-proven new treatments; and the design and analysis of symptom control, quality of life, and cancer care delivery trials.



PhD in Health Services Research, Biostatistics, or equivalent program with strong quantitative and analytic programming skills and an interest in health care delivery and policy.

Associate, Health Financing

Thu, 08 Sep 2016 00:00:00 GMT

Overview  In 2005, CHAI signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Government of Malawi (GoM) to strengthen health systems in the most challenged districts, provide national support to HIV/AIDS drug pricing and programmatic work, support the pilot and scale-up of prevention of mother-to-child transmission of HIV (PMTCT) initiatives, expand access to ART for children, strengthen Malawi’s lab system, and scale-up an integrated nutrition Program for children. CHAI’s support to Malawi has expanded to include Human Resources for Health (HRH), Vaccines (pneumococcal and rotavirus), and Health Financing. CHAI’s health financing program is working with 10 of these countries to support Ministries of Health to substantially and sustainably improve access to essential health services for their populations. Health financing is often insufficient and overly reliant on donors and individuals paying out of pocket at facilities. Low income countries in Africa and South East Asia see over half of the global disease burden, are home to 40% of the global population and account for only 3% of health spending. Donor contributions for health have plateaued, and in many countries are likely to decline in the coming years. Domestic resources for health are increasing, but the rate of growth in government spending dedicated to health fluctuates and is often insufficient to meet population needs. In addition, resources that are made available may not be spent efficiently. Healthcare providers face stock-outs, ration services among patients and charge informal or formal user fees, which can act as a deterrent for patients, and particularly the poor, to seek care. The Clinton Health Access Initiative (CHAI) seeks an Associate, Health Financing to help the Government of Malawi (GoM) address challenges of limited resources for the health sector. The Associate will be based in Lilongwe, Malawi and will report to the Program Manager, Health Financing within the Evidence for Impact Cluster. Malawi faces a challenge of limited resources for the health system, and CHAI has partnered with the government to seek new sources of financing and to realise maximum impact from existing financing. Currently the MoH is undertaking the development of the Health Sector Strategic Plan II (2016-2021) and revision of the country’s Essential Health Package (EHP). Over the next few years, CHAI will support the Department of Planning and Policy Development (DPPD) to overcome the health systems constraints to deliver the revised EHP to the entire population, including the quantification of key systems gaps and prioritization toward a phased EHP scale-up plan. In addition, CHAI will support DPPD in the development of systems and processes that will be improve coordination of government and donor financing for health systems investments toward Universal Health Coverage. Responsibilities Working in close collaboration with MoH, the Associate, Health Financing will: Serve as a trusted technical advisor to the MoH on a broad range of health financing and systems issues, enabling MoH to mobilize more resources into the health sector and distribute them equitably, effectively and efficiently; Collect, clean and analyze data on various areas of the health sector to quantify the available resources, costs and gaps in the health sector to inform planning, budgeting, and aid coordination; Support the MoH in operationalizing the delivery of the revised Essential Health Package through the development of an evidence-based scale up plan; Research frameworks and develop a protocol for assessing service readiness at health facilities; Manage data collection, cleaning, validation, and analysis of health systems readiness gaps, including the harmonization with existing health systems data systems in Malawi; Contribute to the development of a mechanism for coordinating and aligning donor and government funding for health; Support the Aid Coordina[...]

Environment America - Seeking Fellows and Digital Campaigners

Tue, 04 Oct 2016 00:00:00 GMT

Environment America runs campaigns to tackle global warming, stop fracking and protect the places we love. And we’re hiring.

Right now, we’re hiring entry-level staff looking to kick start their career in environmental action and advocacy through our fellowship program and for people to help run our digital campaigns.

We take pride in being strategic and disciplined—and in hiring a team with the grit it takes to get things done. 

That’s how we approach each of our campaigns, whether we’re defending President Obama’s Clean Power Plan against coal industry attacks or convincing more communities and companies to go solar.


Imagine yourself organizing a town hall meeting on solar power. Or imagine releasing a hard-hitting research report on power plant pollution. Or picture yourself building a community coalition around clean water or fracking. Imagine building the organizational power—the funds, the membership, the activist base and so on—that it takes to keep all of this critical work going for the long haul.

All of this is what you do as an Environment America fellow. Because this is how we build the support it takes to reduce global warming pollution, create more solar and wind power, spare our parks and forests from fracking, keep our beaches, rivers and streams clean, and protect our wildlife and wild places. Is it easy? No, we’re up against some wily opponents who are incredibly well-funded. Is it rewarding? Absolutely. And given global warming, fracking and all of the tough problems we’re facing right now, can you imagine doing anything more urgent and meaningful?


Work with one of our campaign teams to run a powerful digital campaign to help solve global warming, expand solar energy or protect clean water.

You’ll write emails and campaign actions that you’ll send to hundreds of thousands of supporters; design and curate content for social media, and engage with our national community; coordinate with our field team of five to nine campaign organizers, and back them up with emails, web pages and digital strategy; develop partnerships and creative online tactics to build our audience and raise money; analyze the results of your work, and report on successes and failures; and keep your projects on track, hold people accountable to their deliverables, and communicate regularly with your team.
