Georgetown University’s O’Neill Institute for National & Global Health Law is seeking an Associate to work with the Global Health Policy and Politics Initiative working to expand our policy and analysis capacity.

The associate will support our expanding work collecting, analyzing, tracking, and exploring the empirical impact of policies and laws around the world linked to infectious disease—working at the intersection of public health, economics, and human rights. This includes a key role in the HIV Policy Lab—a unique collaboration between academic, UN, and civil society organizations to track, measure and improve the HIV-related law and policy environment in countries around the world.

The ideal candidate will combine passion for global health and rights with strong skills in analyzing policy and working with data. Excellent quantitative and qualitative skills are required, with training and experience to effectively review and interpret health policies from a variety of countries and political systems, manage research assistants and legal advisors, and work fluently with our growing global database of policies. Experience in data science and/or social science methods is a plus. So too is knowledge of HIV and TB. Excellent writing and analytical skills are required. We seek a candidate who shares our vision of research and data use as a key tool to improve global public health by addressing inequities in access to quality healthcare and medical innovation.

This position is best suited to someone with either a PhD in political science, economics, public policy, comparative law, data science, or similar social science; or a masters or law degree linked to these fields, alongside methodological training described above. Candidates must have a clear track record of independent, entrepreneurial, and detail-oriented work.

The associate will use all of the above skills to implement projects that sit at the intersection of research and policy change. The Associate will also help develop new project ideas and proposals; manage a substantial database; and provide research and writing assistance to develop and draft reports, peer-reviewed articles, briefings, white papers, and various other writings. The work will include collaborating with researchers and other subject matter experts, both at Georgetown and throughout the world.  Work will focus on infectious disease policy issues on HIV, TB, and COVID-19, but may also include work on other Global Health Policy and Politics Initiative projects, issues, and activities. This will include work supporting civil society and advocacy organizations, particularly in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs). As such, candidates who have lived and worked in LMICs are particularly encouraged to apply.

Institute Associates are based at the O’Neill Institute’s offices at Georgetown University’s Law School near the U.S. Capitol in Washington, DC. Associates receive a competitive salary with outstanding benefits (and terrific work colleagues). We hope and expect that the Associate hired for this position will stay with O’Neill for several years or more while developing new skills and expertise and assuming broader responsibilities.

To apply please send a cover letter and resume with the email subject [Associate GHPP (Your Last Name)] to by Friday, April 22, 2022.
