Boston Medical Center

The Researching Effective Strategies to Prevent Opioid Death (RESPOND) group at Boston Medical Center and BU Schools of Medicine and Public Health seeks a postdoctoral research fellow to help develop and employ a simulation model of opioid use disorder to investigate the effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of novel interventions and models of care to address the epidemic of overdose in the U.S. To inquire contact: benjamin.linas@bmc.org

The post-doctoral fellow will be part of a team of investigators who are building a compartmental simulation model of opioid use disorder and its treatment. The model will simulate the population of people with opioid use disorder in Massachusetts and it will be calibrated to state-specific estimates of disease prevalence, admissions to treatment facilities, and overdose deaths. We will then employ the model to investigate strategies for improving access to and retention on medications for opioid use disorder. The post-doc will lead model development with the help of a computer programmer and a data analyst. A team of faculty with experience in simulation modeling will supervise the post-doctoral fellow. Model development will include Bayesian calibration approaches for fitting simulation inputs, as well data analysis both for developing Bayesian “priors” and for estimating calibration targets. The post-doc will lead working groups within the larger team, and will guide all aspects of model development. Ultimately, when the model is completed, the post-doctoral fellow will employ the model to develop the evidence base needed to formulate new policy and treatment guidelines for opioid use disorder. We anticipate the post-doctoral fellow will present model findings at
national conferences and will author multiple peer-reviewed manuscripts.

Requires a PhD, preferably in mathematics, statistics, engineering or another quantitative field, although outstanding applicants from other fields may be considered. See attached pdf for necessary experience and knowledge.

The "Community Engagement Standards for Community Health Planning Guideline" was adopted as part of updates made to regulations in the Determination of Need process in 2017, in order to help hospitals leverage their Community Heath Needs Assessment and community engagement process to meet the DPH community health planning standards.  Additionally, there is interest in aligning the community guidelines for MDPH staff so that DPH community engagement efforts are reflected in the standards. As a first step, key informant interviews have already been conducted on 16 MDPH programmatic strategic plans to understand how they incorporated a variety of community engagement methods through their planning. In addition, there is a Community Engagement Work Group dedicated to bringing together many bureau and office lenses and experiences to the conversation.

The intern will have an opportunity to engage MDPH staff, through the Community Engagement work group and other identified key partners.
