The O'Neill Institute for National and Global Health Law

Washington, D.C., United States

The O’Neill Institute for National and Global Health Law is hiring an Associate to help lead and support a wide-ranging project on tuberculosis and human rights. The project, which involves close coordination with the Stop TB Partnership, is based in the recognition that tuberculosis is driven by many forms of marginalization and human rights violations. A rights-based, law and policy approach is an essential component of efforts to effectively prevent and treat TB, including MDR-TB.

The TB Associate will be expected to contribute to and may lead O’Neill Institute’s work in several areas, including but not limited to the human rights work on prisons, migration and health equity. The Associate will also work with O’Neill Institute colleagues in seeking funding for follow-on work.

Experience working in the area of tuberculosis and human rights is helpful but not required. Experience working on issues of global health and human rights more generally is strongly encouraged. The position will include international travel, including to relevant meetings and consultations.
