Employer: Trust for America’s Health
Located in: Washington, DC
Degree Required: Bachelors
Trust for America’s Health (TFAH) seeks a Health Policy Researcher and Analyst to work on a one-year project that will, in partnership with the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, assess and report on states’ preparedness for preventing and responding to the public health impacts of climate change. The project was created out of a conviction that climate change is a public health threat that demands greater attention and urgent action. Climate-related changes in weather patterns, and resulting heat waves, floods, and droughts; vector-, food-, and waterborne infectious diseases; and changes in the quality and safety of air, food, and water, among other extreme events, threaten to cause injuries, illnesses, and deaths. As these dangers increase over time, all U.S. residents are at risk of experiencing adverse health outcomes, particularly populations who are disproportionately vulnerable, including communities of color, older adults, children, and low-income communities. Therefore, states, alongside federal and local partners, have a responsibility to ready themselves to safeguard their residents.
The Health Policy Researcher and Analyst will report to a senior researcher, and also work closely with other members of the TFAH team to assist with—and sometimes take the lead on—exploratory research, expert interviews, and literature review; organization of an advisory group; state data collection and organization; data analysis; quality control; and report writing.
This is a one-year, grant-funded position. Continued employment beyond the one-year project will be subject to TFAH receiving additional project funding.
Applicants for the above should submit a cover letter and resume email@example.com. Please, no calls or faxes.
