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 2021. 

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 have time to pursue their own scholarship and clinical or policy projects. All previous fellows who have entered the legal academia job market have obtained tenure-track positions following their Solomon fellowship. The fellowship is available for one or two years, and both full-time and part-time applications will be considered.

About the Solomon Center

The Solomon Center for Health Law and Policy at Yale Law School is the first of its kind to focus on the intersection of law and the governance, practice, and business of health care. The Center brings together leading experts and practitioners from the public and private sectors to address cutting-edge questions of health law and policy, and to train the next generation of top health lawyers, industry leaders, policymakers, and academics.

The Center was established to meet a critical need for a new academic and legal-professional discipline that responds to the rapidly evolving environment of health care and its centrality in the nation’s economy and government. Among the few health law centers at U.S. law schools, the Solomon Center is unique in its focus not only on the government’s role in health care, but also health care business and physicians and scientists themselves. The Solomon Center distinguishes itself by doing what Yale does best: focusing on law as a tool to affect governance, industry, and the academy.

The Center’s work is highly interdisciplinary. Programming includes many course offerings, both academic and experiential; career planning; academic research, policy work and litigation briefs; and numerous high-profile panels and conferences that bring academic, government, and business leaders in health care to the Law School. In addition to hosting a steady stream of academic visitors from all disciplines to enrich programming and course offerings, the Center supports student research, field work, and publications. Building on relationships with the Yale School of Medicine, Yale Cancer Center, Yale New Haven Hospital, Yale School of Management, and Yale Interdisciplinary Center for Bioethics, the Center brings together all that Yale has to offer to make a difference both at Yale and beyond.

Applications will be accepted until the position is filled.  Interested applicants should send their resume/CV, three references, and a statement of interest including areas of health law in which they have particular interest to Katherine Kraschel, Executive Director of the Solomon Center for Health Law and Policy at Yale Law School at Katherine.Kraschel@yale.edu.
