The Center for Health Measurement in the Department of Population Health Sciences at Duke University School of Medicine invites applications for a 2-year Postdoctoral Fellow with interest in clinical outcomes assessments, survey methodology, psychometric evaluation, and/or stated-preference research. The MaRS Postdoctoral Fellow will join a multi-disciplinary research team that conducts innovative patient-centered outcomes research to bring the voices of the patients and caregivers more directly into care planning, treatment decisions, and health policy.

  • Receive one-on-one training by Duke faculty mentor(s) with expertise in clinical outcomes assessments (patient-reported, observer-reported, clinician-reported, and performance outcomes), patient preference assessment, regulatory science, and/or stakeholder engagement
  • Conduct independent research activities under the guidance of an industry mentor and a Duke faculty mentor
  • Complete a tailored program with a core set of competencies, including:
    • Designing, selecting or evaluating clinical outcomes assessments (COAs)
    • Integrating COAs in clinical trials
    • Survey methods for valuing outcomes and assessing preferences
    • Patient-focused drug and device development

Fellowship Structure

The term of the appointment is two years. Approximately 80% of time in Year 1 is spent training in Durham, NC under the mentorship of a Duke Faculty member, while the remaining 20% is spent receiving mentoring from an industry partner. In Year 2, 80% of the Fellow’s time is spent training with an industry partner, and Duke Faculty will provide mentoring for the remaining 20%. The goal is to transition the MaRS fellow to a full time position in industry or regulatory agency.

Year 1 is focused on strengthening skills via didactic training and participation in ongoing studies involving COAs. During this time, fellows may attend graduate-level courses offered through Duke's Department of Population Health Science's graduate program or other ad hoc courses offered throughout Duke. The Fellow will participate in a mentored research project on patient-centered outcomes research.

Year 2 is focused on real-world, experiential patient-centered research with the industry partner. The Fellow will continue to conduct a mentored project that is both related to patient-centered research and can contribute to regulatory decision making and policy making, under the guidance of an industry mentor and a Duke faculty mentor.
