Overview
How is it that a resource constrained country on the global periphery has consistently produced policy models critical to human life and public health? What shared social, cultural, political and organizational foundations underpin Thailand’s public health successes? How does a middle income country influence international affairs without financial resources? This major new research project explores Thailand’s contributions to global health in a number of policy areas, including universal health coverage, HIV prevention, essential medicines, tobacco control, laboratory accreditation, and cost-effective health technology assessment.

Looking for highly motivated research assistant who can meet deadlines and work independently with minimal guidance to produce policy memos responding to specific tasks; to do translation and transcription work; and to assist with literature reviews and annotated bibliographies. Strong writing and analytical skills essential. Background in public health a plus. Thai language fluency a bonus.

Please send brief statement of interest, CV, number of hours available per week, and writing sample to Professor Joseph (Joe) Harris at josephh@bu.edu.
