Job Number:
Organization: Johns Hopkins Center for Drug Safety and Effectiveness
Posted: 1/18/2018
Type: Full-Time
Classification: Epidemiology
Industry: Academic Institutions

Location: Baltimore,  MD    USA

Position Description: Despite remarkable new treatments to treat heart, lung and blood diseases, many important questions remain regarding the benefits and risks of particular products and how these medicines can best be used to improve human health. Many recently approved FDA-approved treatments are for common and costly heart, lung and blood diseases. There is an imperative to address questions about the benefits and risks of approved drugs so as to inform the best use of these medicines. The aim of the program is to train the next generation of scientists to address the needs of patients, clinicians, payers, regulators and other stakeholders, and in so doing, improve the optimal use of medicines to treat heart, lung and blood diseases in the United States. The program leverages the human capital and material resources at Johns Hopkins to provide comprehensive, longitudinal, and integrated training and professional development opportunities to future leaders in the field. Program faculty are situated within the Johns Hopkins Center for Drug Safety and Effectiveness (CDSE), which serves as a nexus for individuals at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health and the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine who are involved in research, education, clinical programs and public service to improve prescription drug use and pharmaceutical policy in the United States and around the world. Postdoctoral fellows will participate in on-going and fellow-initiated scientific investigations addressing medication and device utilization, effectiveness, and safety relevant to heart, lung, and blood diseases. They will acquire special expertise in conducting pharmacoepidemiology research in their specialty discipline under the guidance of a mentor. For some postdoctoral fellows, enrollment in a degree program to cross- disciplinarily supplement their primary training at the Master’s level may be appropriate and can be supported. Training grant funding provides a stipend for postdoctoral fellows, individual health insurance and an annual conference allowance.

Qualifications: A trainee must be a citizen or non-citizen national of the United States or must have been lawfully admitted for permanent residence (i.e., in possession of a currently valid Alien Registration Receipt Card I-551). Non-citizen nationals are generally persons born in outlying possessions of the United States (e.g., American Samoa and Swains Island). Individuals on temporary or student visas are not eligible due to the funding mechanism. Postdoctoral trainees must have received, as of the beginning date of the National Research Service Award (NRSA) appointment, a PhD, MD, DDS, or comparable doctoral degree from an accredited domestic or foreign institution. Eligible doctoral degrees include, but are not limited to, the following: PharmD, ScD, DrPH, DMD, DC, DO, D.V.M., OD, DPM, EngD, DNSc, DSW, and PsyD. Documentation by an authorized official of the degree-granting institution certifying all degree requirements have been met prior to the beginning date of training is required. Appointments are made in 12-month increments and trainees are required to pursue their research training on a full- time basis, devoting at least 40 hours per week to the program. Within the 40 hour per week training period, research trainees who are also training as clinicians must devote their time to the proposed research training and must confine clinical duties to those that are an integral part of the research training experience. There is a capped stipend as well as a travel allowance for conference support associated with this fellowship.

Organization Description: Drawing on the combined expertise of the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health and the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, the Center for Drug Safety and Effectiveness serves as a nexus for individuals at Johns Hopkins who are involved in research, education, clinical programs and public service to improve prescription drug use and pharmaceutical policy in the United States and around the world. The unparalleled knowledge base of the Center’s core faculty reflects a diversity of fields, ranging from pharmacovigilance to regulatory policy.
