Fellowship Opportunities

Postdoctoral fellowship students work closely with Program faculty on projects where they learn first-hand how to apply the principles of outcomes research to real-life problems. These fellowships provide students with a year of study at the University of Washington, usually combined with a period of applied research at the sponsoring company.

The University of Washington/Allergan Fellowship and the University of Washington/Bayer Fellowship in Pharmaceutical Outcomes Research and Policy combines the resources of a leading academic center for pharmaceutical economics and policy with the dynamic, real-world training of two major pharmaceutical companies recognized for their commitment to innovation.


Applicants applying for these fellowships must have a degree in pharmacy or health-related discipline and have some research experience (preference will be given to those with a high academic standing). Excellent written and verbal communication skills are also essential. Applicants will be required to submit their curriculum vitae, a letter describing their career goals, and three letters of recommendation. Selection of fellows will be made by a steering committee composed of University of Washington faculty members and representatives from Allergan.
