Baylor College of Medicine and Department Summary:
We are seeking qualitative research expertise for the Center for Innovations in Quality, Effectiveness and Safety, the largest center for health services research in the southwest. The mission of this center is to improve health and well-being through innovations in health care delivery.

The instructor will perform qualitative analysis for multiple studies. The instructor will also be expected to collaborate as a core team member working directly with the principal investigators and directors of the centers and any of the other core members as determined by the planning and professional needs of a given project. The instructor will serve as a resource in the development of a large number of health services related grants using qualitative methodologies within the centers.
