The Fenway Institute at Fenway Health (TFI) and the Harvard Medical School Department of Population Medicine (DPM) at
the Harvard Pilgrim Health Care Institute (HPHCI) seek a faculty member for a full-time position as a junior or mid-level
investigator to develop a robust Health Services Research unit. Ideal candidates will have a PhD, MD, DDS, ScD, DrPH, or
equivalent doctoral degree.
The research unit will focus on community health, public health, lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer/questioning
(LGBTQ) health, and/or health disparities. The successful candidate will oversee the implementation of a collaborative
research program, identify and apply for funding to support the research, and explore and develop research opportunities with
other investigators at TFI and DPM. Research questions may span the diversity of health services research, including topics
such as consumer education, patient outcomes and effectiveness of care, health care quality and patient safety, patient-centered
care, health care access and utilization, and healthcare costs and financing models. The incumbent will incrementally establish
and maintain external funding for his or her research agenda within a 3- to 5-year period.
Strengths of TFI and DPM include rich mentorship, a collegial work environment, and close partnerships with multiple public
health agencies (including CDC, FDA, and the Massachusetts Department of Public Health) and multiple delivery partners
(including Fenway Health, Atrius Health, Cambridge Health Alliance, Partners Healthcare, and the Hospital Corporation of
America). Faculty are eligible to mentor trainees from across Harvard University.
Faculty members have the opportunity to develop a research portfolio that utilizes the unique populations, clinical care
environments, and data sets available at TFI and DPM, including electronic health record (EHR) data from Fenway Health,
Atrius Health, Cambridge Health Alliance, and the Hospital Corporation of America. Additional resources include the
Massachusetts uniform data system (UDS) data, Community Health Applied Research Network (CHARN) data, CFAR (Center
