Detailed Job Description

Saint Louis University, a Catholic, Jesuit institution dedicated to student learning, research, health care and service, is seeking applicants for a full-time Health Law and Policy Fellow and Instructor in the Center for Health Law Studies in the School of Law. The position is a non-tenure-track faculty appointment at the rank of Instructor. It is funded through a contract with the Missouri Foundation for Health. The Fellow will work under the general direction of Professor Sidney Watson.

The Fellow will prepare and present a variety of legal and policy analyses on priority health access issues identified in collaboration with Missouri Health Care for All, Missouri Jobs with Justice, Missouri Rural Crisis Center and other members of the Missouri health advocates coalition. One emphasis is the creation of "plain language" analysis of legal and policy initiatives related to the Affordable Care Act, Medicaid, federal and state budget discussions, and private insurance reforms including fact sheets, longer briefs and white papers, email alerts, and training materials, including some developed specifically for rural communities and rural stakeholders.

The Fellow will serve as a liaison with national organizations monitoring emerging issues and long-term strategy, providing analysis and translation of information for advocacy coalition members' use. The Fellow will also provide written and oral testimony at legislative and administrative hearings and assist coalition members in preparing their testimony for such hearings.

The Fellow will also help educate the public about the Affordable Care Act, Medicaid, and other health access and health reform legal and policy issues. He or she will help design and conduct law school courses and community trainings to develop a cadre of law students and community members to present educational programs and create story banks through which people can share their health care experiences. The Fellow will have the opportunity to design and present inter-generational learning opportunities for both law students and volunteer community advocates.

A Juris Doctorate degree is required. Study or experience in health law and policy is also required as is an understanding and appreciation of grassroots health advocacy.
