UIC POSTDOCTORAL FELLOWSHIPS IN HEALTH ECONOMICS AND OUTCOMES RESEARCH (HEOR) AND/OR PHARMACOEPIDEMIOLOGY
The UIC Center for Pharmacoepidemiology and Pharmacoeconomic Research (CPR) postdoctoral fellowships offer an opportunity for additional training in pharmacoepidemiology, pharmacoeconomics and outcomes research along with applied experience at a sponsoring organization.
Although individual fellowships may focus on particular therapeutic or methodologic areas, the UIC fellowship program aims to broadly train individuals who wish to conduct pharmaceutical-based outcomes and/or pharmacoepidemiology research in preparation for a career in the pharmaceutical industry or academia. Knowledge and experience is gained in the use of a variety of research methodologies, with training opportunities available from members of the UIC Center for Pharmacoepidemiology and Pharmacoeconomic Research and UIC Department of Pharmacy Systems, Outcomes and Policy.
The fellow spends the first year of the program working with faculty of the Center for Pharmacoepidemiology and Pharmacoeconomic Research at UIC. The second year is spent working with staff at the sponsoring corporation. During both years, the fellow takes courses at UIC which include courses in biostatistics, research design, pharmacoeconomics and grant writing. Application to the UIC Department of Pharmacy Systems, Outcomes and Policy graduate program is encouraged and coursework may be applied towards a graduate degree (Masters or PhD). Coursework may be tailored to an individual applicant’s background and experience.
During the program, the fellow will be involved in projects to gain experience in various outcomes research methodologies and study designs. Presentation and publication of research results in peer-reviewed venues is expected. The fellow will attend professional and scientific conferences. Fellows will be involved in teaching of professional PharmD students in the classroom setting.
Candidates should have a PharmD and/or graduate-level training in a field relevant to outcomes research. Salary and benefits are competitive
