The postdoctoral fellow will work under the guidance of Dr. Pascal Geldsetzer and other researchers at Heidelberg University and Stanford University. The group works on a wide variety of research, with foci being medication effectiveness, health services research, and population health issues. One key data source for these projects is household survey data, particularly the Demographic and Health Surveys. The group is also working on randomized intervention studies in low- and middle-income country settings, electronic health record data, and the re-analysis of clinical trial data. The researcher will be expected to publish in high-impact peer-reviewed journals.
The postdoctoral fellow will have the opportunity to supervise PhD, Master and Dr. med (thesis as part of medical studies in Germany) students. The fellow will also have the opportunity to teach as part of the institute’s Masters and doctoral program but will not be required or expected to do so.

We stand for equal opportunities. Severely disabled persons are given priority in the case of equal suitability. The University Hospital aims to generally increase the proportion of women in all areas and positions in which women are underrepresented. Qualified women are therefore particularly encouraged to apply. Full-time positions are generally divisible, unless there are official or legal reasons to the contrary.
