Military Health Policy Researcher

Job Code:
Location: USA – CA, PA, MA, DC
Job ID: 4729

Description – Overview:

The RAND Corporation is a research organization that develops solutions to public policy challenges to help make communities throughout the world safer and more secure, healthier and more prosperous. RAND’s research and analysis address issues that impact people everywhere, including security, health, education, sustainability, growth, and development. Headquartered in Santa Monica, California, RAND has approximately 1,700 people from more than 45 countries working in offices in North America, Europe and Australia, with annual revenues of more than $260 million.

RAND is nonprofit, nonpartisan, and committed to the public interest.  Our research is sponsored by government agencies, foundations, other nonprofit organizations, and the private sector. We rely on philanthropic support to reach beyond the scope of client-sponsored work to tackle questions that may be too big, too complex, or too new for our clients to address. RAND values objectivity and integrity in both its research processes and internal interactions. We emphasize a collegial environment that respects the contributions and dignity of all staff.

Position Description

RAND seeks mid and senior-level applicants for military health policy research positions. Researchers with training in public policy, policy analysis, economics, sociology, public health, operations research, or closely related fields are encouraged to apply. Clinical researchers with research training and experience in military health policy are also encouraged to apply.


Successful applicants will have demonstrated quantitative and/or qualitative research skills, excellent verbal and written communication skills, an interest in building a policy research portfolio, the ability to work effectively as a member of a multidisciplinary team, a strong commitment to RAND's core values of quality and objectivity, and either a track record or high potential for federal funding. Salary is commensurate with experience.

Applicants must have deep and demonstrated topical knowledge and research experience in at least one of the following topical areas:

The financing, operation, and performance of the Military Health System (MHS), particularly with a focus on the dual mission of the MHS.

The design, management, and performance of the TRICARE program in particular.

Measuring quality, cost, value, and access in the military health context using administrative and claims data including MDR/M2 data.

Education Requirements

PhD in public policy, policy analysis, economics, sociology, public health, operations research, health care administration, behavioral health, or other closely related fields preferred.  Masters-level applicants may be considered with a minimum of six years of relevant professional work experience.


A record of peer-reviewed publications consistent with experience is expected. At least one writing sample submitted should be a published or draft first authored journal article or other research publication. Experience working in the Military Health System or the health care industry more broadly (private or public sector) is desirable. Senior doctoral-level researchers are expected to show a demonstrated ability to obtain extramural funding, lead multidisciplinary teams, mentor junior staff, and communicate interim and final results to the RAND community and to policymaking audiences.
