The Post-Graduate Fellowship (PGF) is an intensive training program that provides opportunities for self-directed research and interdisciplinary collaboration in health metrics. Strong candidates for this program have graduate-level training in quantitative methodology from one of the following areas: health policy, economics, mathematics, computer science, statistics, biostatistics, epidemiology, health services, demography, engineering, physics, medical sciences, or other related fields.
Fellows receive training through on-the-job research, methods workshops, access to University of Washington courses, and on-site lectures and seminars. Fellows contribute directly to IHME’s research agenda through their involvement in research teams, development of new methods, and managing and driving research projects to meet deliverables.
Applications are due on November 1. Candidate selection includes phone interviews and in-person interviews held at IHME. Admissions decisions are made by the end of February for fellows that will join IHME the following fall.
