Research Opportunities

The vision of the MetroHealth Research Institute is to be the national leader in translating innovations and discoveries to improve the health and quality of life of the community, especially, vulnerable populations. 

Currently, MetroHealth has more than $100 million in active research grants. Most funding comes through federal agencies, including the National Institutes of Health and the Department of Defense. Our research programs include MetroHealth Rehabilitation Institute, Population Health Research Institute, and Emergency Care Research Institute.

Employees who come to work at The MetroHealth System are champions of our mission of “leading the way to healthier community through service, teaching, discovery and teamwork.” We have exceptional clinicians and researchers and are looking for more of them.

We invite outstanding individuals (PhDs, DrPH or MDs) to apply for new faculty positions at any rank (Instructor/Assistant/Associate/Professor) in the Population Health Research Institute (PHRI). PHRI is working on initiatives that understand and promote population health in collaboration with payers, policymakers, health care institutions, The MetroHealth System operations, and Case Western Reserve University.

PHRI’s vision is to lead the way to a healthy, thriving, equitable community and nation through actionable research, education and collaboration. PHRI consists of three Centers: The Center for Clinical Informatics, Research, and Education (CCIRE); the Center for Reducing Health Disparities (CRHD); and The Center for Health Care Research and Policy (CHRP). These 3 centers are supported by a Division of Biostatistics and Data Sciences, and are renowned for community engaged participatory research, statewide and regional policy relevant implementation science, clinical informatics research, and social context of care. PHRI partners with payers, policymakers, health care organizations, academic universities, and the community to accomplish our aims and have a greater impact. We work closely with our Population Health Innovations Institute within The MetroHealth System where innovative approaches to improving population health can be deployed and evaluated. We seek faculty members with an interest in population health research broadly across the life spectrum, including primary and specialty care, economics, psychology, decision science, informatics, data science, gerontology, sociology, and health services research. We especially welcome interests in informatics, disparities, cancer prevention and management, trauma and implementation science.
