June 25, 2012 - AHPP Announcement
Research assistantships available for health economics research on China and Japan
The Asia Health Policy Program (AHPP) of the Walter H. Shorenstein Asia-Pacific Research Center announces the availability of two 2012–13 pre-doctoral research assistantships in health economics research on evidence-based health policy in East Asia. The assistantships support masters or pre-doctoral students with excellent econometrics skills who are interested in microeconomic analysis of recent health policy reforms in Japan or China. Student research assistants (RAs) will receive salary and tuition allowance for up to 10 units (depending on the time commitment) in the Autumn, Winter, and Spring quarters of the 2012–13 academic year.
Two positions are open until filled. One RA would support research by Jay Bhattacharya and Karen Eggleston on hospital payment reforms in Japan; ability to read and write Japanese would be ideal. A second RA position will support research by Karen Eggleston and Kate Bundorf on maternal and child health in China; knowledge of Chinese would be ideal. Both positions require excellent microeconomics and data analysis skills. We seek a student who is able to start on an hourly basis in July or August 2012 and continue with RA-ship support beginning Autumn quarter.
Applicants should send the following materials to the research assistantship coordinator, Lisa Lee:
- Description of research interests, previous RA experience, and relevant skills (one page).
- Copy of transcripts.
- One letter of recommendation, sent directly to AHPP.
Deadline for receipt of all materials is July 20, 2012. Please address all materials to:
