Advanced Fellowship in Clinical and Health Services Research
Center for Care Delivery and Outcomes Research (CCDOR): a VA Health Services Research and Development Center of Innovation
We are currently seeking qualified candidates for a two-year post-doctoral fellowship in clinical and health services research. Candidates with a PhD, MD, or other doctoral degree (e.g., DNP) in medicine or allied health, public health, psychology, biostatistics, or related field are encouraged to apply.
CCDOR is a multidisciplinary VA health services research center with 31 faculty investigators and over 60 staff members (statisticians, data programmers, administrative staff, project coordinators, research staff, and project volunteers) dedicated to understanding and improving health care for veterans, family members, and members of the community. Candidates interested in trauma recovery, chronic pain/opioid harms reduction, and age-related conditions may find CCDOR an especially good fit in that several investigators have active research programs in these and overlapping areas. However, CCDOR also has one or more senior investigators with active research programs in the following content areas: racial and ethnic disparities in health and health care, cancer screening and prevention (colorectal, lung, cervical, and prostate cancer; tobacco cessation), substance misuse, sleep problems, heart failure, physical functioning and multimorbidity, and clinical performance improvement. Candidates interested in one or more of our content areas are encouraged to apply.
All fellows are paired with a primary mentor, selected from a talented cadre of senior investigators. Fellows participate in an intensive mentored research experience and receive training in grant and manuscript writing, health services research, advanced research methods tailored to their research interests, and career development.
CCDOR strives to create an atmosphere where differences are valued, learners are supported, and coworkers are welcoming. Our mission, to improve the health and health care of Veterans and US community members, will only be achieved through a diversity of perspectives and an environment of inclusiveness, equal opportunity, and respect. CCDOR encourages qualified applicants of all races, ethnicities, gender identities or expressions, sexual orientations, ages, ancestries, religious practices, and socioeconomic backgrounds.
Interested candidates should send a cover letter stating career interests and fellowship goals, curriculum vitae, three letters of recommendation, and a writing sample to email@example.com
