BAYER | Fred Hutch Fellowship

BAYER | Fred Hutch 2-year Post-Doctoral Fellowship in Health Economics and Outcomes Research

To help meet the growing need for Health Economics and Outcomes Research (HEOR) researchers, the Hutchinson Institute for Cancer Outcomes Research (HICOR) at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Center, in conjunction with Bayer Healthcare, has curated a unique fellowship program focused on oncology.  This fellowship program is designed to train post-doctoral students in advanced techniques pertaining to HEOR evaluation of cancer pharmaceuticals and related health care technologies. The fellowship combines one year of academic research experience in the Public Health Sciences Division of Fred Hutch with one year of industry experience at Bayer HealthCare in New Jersey to provide fellows with both the theoretical tools and the practical experience to become skilled researchers in this increasingly important discipline. 


Eligible candidates will have a medical degree and/or doctoral level degree in economics, health economics, epidemiology or related subjects. For those holding the MD degree, completion of a clinical residency or equivalent experience is encouraged but not required.

Please be advised: Employment-based visa requirements exclude F-1, H-1B and E-3 applicants from participating in this fellowship. Please review guidelines carefully.

Selection Process

An open position will be posted each year. Interested applicants will submit an application consisting of:

  • curriculum vitae
  • letter of intent
  • three letters of recommendation

Applications will be submitted through the Fred Hutch employment page. Finalists will be invited to an in-person interview at the Fred Hutch and/or live or telephone interviews with DG&OS leaders at Bayer  Healthcare. Fellows will be selected by a joint committee composed of faculty from HICOR at Fred Hutch and a team at Bayer Healthcare. Applications are still being accepted for the current 2022 Post-Doctoral Research Fellow position.
