Health Policy Researcher (Specialist Series)
The UC Berkeley Center for Labor Research and Education (Labor Center) in the Institute for Research on Labor and Employment (IRLE) seeks applications for a Health Policy Researcher to start as soon as possible.
The Labor Center’s health care research aims to inform federal, state, and local policymaking to improve access to health coverage and make health care more affordable for workers and their families. Our research especially examines policy impacts for California low-income and immigrant working families and communities of color. Many of our publications include projections from the California Simulation of Insurance Markets (CalSIM) model, jointly developed with the UCLA Center for Health Policy Research. Most recently, our team’s work has been used to estimate the impact of state-based reforms to improve affordability of health coverage and expand coverage to all regardless of immigration status.
The Health Policy Researcher will conduct quantitative and qualitative research on health care and labor and employment issues, as well as provide technical assistance to stakeholders. This will include working as part of the team developing and utilizing the California Simulation of Insurance Markets Model (CalSIM). This position offers an exciting opportunity to be part of a high-impact, high-visibility organization that is making a difference in the lives of working families and communities of color. It also provides the opportunity to work with a nationally-recognized team of researchers, policy analysts, and academics
