Employer: Institute for Clinical and Economic Review (ICER)
Deadline: Posting will remain open until filled.
Reporting to the Chief Scientific Officer of ICER, the position requires a senior and accomplished individual of exceptional caliber. The ideal candidate is a clinician trained in medicine, surgery, or nursing who has Master’s‐ or Ph.D.‐level training in clinical epidemiology and a compelling personal record of work in the fields of health technology assessment, pharmacoepidemiology, clinical epidemiology, or health services research. Individuals without clinical training but with training and extensive experience in these research fields will also be considered. Given the leadership role envisioned for this position, it requires a person of unquestionable integrity, with exceptional communication and presentation skills, and an ability to engage with and influence a broad range of stakeholders.
The Senior Scientist, Health Technology Assessment will be responsible for leading or co‐leading teams conducting rigorous analyses and critical appraisals of published medical evidence across a wide range of diagnostic, prognostic, therapeutic and other clinical interventions, as well as summarizing results, producing reports, and consulting on development of clinical guidelines, coverage policies, shared decision‐making tools, and other approaches to implement ICER’s findings. While leadership of other research staff is expected to be on a project‐specific basis, direct and permanent reporting to the Senior Scientist will be considered based on prior management experience. This role will also involve moderation of major public meetings associated with ICER programs and a leadership role affording the opportunity to guide high‐ level policy discussions of the interpretation and application of evidence throughout the U.S. health care system.
