Opportunities


Solomon Center Senior Research Fellow

The Solomon Center for Health Law and Policy at Yale Law School is seeking to hire a recent J.D. to serve as a Senior Fellow for the Center beginning in the summer or fall of 2020.

The fellow will assist in all aspects of the Center’s substantive work and will work closely with the Center’s staff (Professor Abbe Gluck, Executive Director Katie Kraschel, as well as administrative staff and visiting and adjunct health faculty). Fellows will also have time to pursue their own scholarship and clinical or policy projects. Participation in the robust YLS Medical-Legal Partnership program, including teaching in the program, is also an option. All previous fellows have obtained tenure-track positions following their Solomon fellowship.

The fellowship is available for one or two years.

Please see the job description and application instructions to learn more.


Solomon Center Research Director for Medical Legal Partnerships

The Solomon Center for Health Law and Policy at Yale Law School has an exciting opportunity for a quantitative research director to contribute to a critical gap in the legal and biomedical scholarly literature by completing an interdisciplinary, quantitative study to evaluate Medical Legal Partnerships (MLPs).  MLPs embed legal services into the healthcare setting, allowing patients to address health-harming civil legal needs in a trusted setting.  The Solomon Center’s five MLPs offer a unique laboratory because of their unprecedented diversity in a single city. Each addresses the needs of a distinct patient population: immigrants, veterans, former prisoners transitioning into the community, children, and palliative care patients. No empirical study has ever evaluated the value of the “L” – the law component specifically – in an MLP.

The research director for MLPs will lead the conceptual design and manage the research project through its completion and publication.  Please see the job description and application instructions to learn more.


Solomon Center Medical Legal Partnership Legal Director

The Solomon Center for Health Law and Policy at Yale Law School, in collaboration with Yale New Haven Hospital and Yale School of Medicine, seeks applications for an attorney to oversee and lead the legal component of three existing as well as future New Haven- based Medical Legal Partnerships as its inaugural MLP Program director. The three existing MLPs were all founded by the Solomon Center and each serves distinct patient populations – patients recently released from incarceration, cancer and geriatric patients, and immigrant patients. These MLPs are based at Yale New Haven Hospital or Yale School of Medicine, and the MLP Director will be affiliated with all three organizations. The MLP Director will also be a collaborative partner with New Haven’s other existing MLPs that serve pediatric and veteran patients, and will be physically located in a clinical setting at Yale New Haven Hospital. The position is a non-tenure-track faculty appointment at Yale Law School. Initial appointment for 1 or 2 years, presumptively renewable with full evaluation at the conclusion of 2 years. The start date will be no later than July 2020. Please see the detailed job description and application instructions to learn more.
