This postdoctoral Fellowship Program provides innovative training in sexuality, gender, and mental health research as applied to HIV prevention and treatment across populations in both national and global contexts.

Our Program employs three complementary and mutually reinforcing learning strategies:

(1)   Involvement in research mentored by experienced senior investigators;

(2)   Education via multiple modalities in substantive issues, including the intersection of sexuality, gender, and mental health with fundamentals of medicine, epidemiology, biostatistics, and health promotion related to HIV/AIDS prevention, treatment, and care; and

(3)   Trainingincritical academic and professional skills that will enable graduating Fellows to excel as competitive researchers with extramural grant supportfromNIHaswell as other PHS and private funders.

This Fellowship offers extensive opportunities for networking with researchers, clinicians, and public health practitioners across disciplines and a range of academic and public health centers in the New York metropolitan area. Fellows have full access to resources of the HIV Center and the Columbia University Medical Center.

The Medicaid and CHIP Payment and Access Commission (MACPAC), a non-partisan legislative branch agency that advises the U.S. Congress on Medicaid and CHIP policy issues, is seeking an analyst. In particular, we are seeking someone with prior Medicaid or CHIP experience who is also:

  • skilled in policy analysis including identifying important policy questions, marshaling evidence from multiple sources, and developing policy options;
  • able to effectively communicate orally and in writing, translating technical information into clear and concise information for lay audiences;
  • able to produce work that is objective and non-partisan; and
  • able to balance multiple tasks and work under deadlines, both independently and in collaboration with other team members.

A good sense of humor and tolerance for ambiguity are also appreciated. Experience working with Medicaid administrative data or federal survey data is useful but not required.

A graduate degree in health policy, health services research, public policy, public health, or other related field and at least five years of policy experience are desirable.

While the MACPAC team is currently teleworking, qualified candidates should be ready to work in our office in downtown Washington, DC in 2021. Salary competitive with those in other federal agencies, and commensurate with experience. We offer federal employee health and retirement benefits.
