Health Innovation, Tech and Equity


While researching this week’s SmartJobs posting on mental health we also noticed a rising demand for graduate and PhD level skills within the health tech and outcomes segment.

This is not only about STEM skills per sea but a much broader scope that includes PhD-level skills related to business development, policy, data science, user experience, project management, economic outcomes research, and partnerships work within larger healthcare companies

We profile a few selected positions below:


Director, Early Innovation Partnering, Johnson & Johnson

Business Development Manager, iHealth Labs

Consumer Experience Researcher, Sanofi

Project Manager, Vibrent Health

Policy Lead, Ellison Institute


Vice President, Health Economics Outcomes Research

Researcher, Health Equity, Mathematica Policy Research

Global Health Economics and Outcomes Research, Vertex Pharmaceuticals

Lead Data Scientist, Novelis



If you’re not looking for a full-time position it is never too early ton gain real-world experience outside of academia.

Of note: there are many opportunities to contribute to health innovation, such as our latest participation in the National Institutes of Health and NASA’s “Air You Wear Challenge,” (see flyer below).  You can register for this challenge, and others, over at our Experiences section.
