PORTAL is accepting applications for its 2024 Postdoctoral Fellowship

The Program On Regulation, Therapeutics, And Law (PORTAL) in the Division of Pharmacoepidemiology & Pharmacoeconomics at Brigham & Women’s Hospital and Harvard Medical School invites its 2024 round of applications for postdoctoral fellows in pharmaceutical law and health services research.

Applications are invited from researchers with doctoral degrees (J.D., M.D., Ph.D., Pharm.D., or equivalent) or who will complete such training by July 2024.

Fellows will have an appointment at Harvard Medical School, receive close mentorship from PORTAL and Division faculty, and engage in projects intended to start their careers in law and public health.

Current and past fellows have studied FDA regulation, patents, drug access and costs, and competition in the therapeutic marketplace. Other areas of focus include the relationship between intellectual property and drug costs and availability, ethical issues affecting the pharmaceutical market, drug comparative effectiveness, as well as the development, approval, and evidence-based use of drugs, devices, vaccines, and diagnostics.

Fellowship length will vary depending on the candidate (minimum: 1 year).
