Join our Team.
The Health Care Cost Institute (HCCI) is an independent, non-profit research institute located in Washington, D.C. with a mission to produce and promote research and analyses on the causes of rising U.S. health spending. HCCI maintains a national, multi-payer, longitudinal dataset containing previously inaccessible data on the private health insurance market in addition to Qualified Entity (QE) Medicare Fee-for-Service data, representing about 100 million covered lives a year. Researchers and policymakers use HCCI’s data to study the health care system, evaluate existing and new policies, and assess quality. HCCI’s own multi-disciplinary team of researchers produces reports of import to major stakeholders in health care in an academic but fast-paced, small start-up environment. HCCI partners on projects with multiple leading academic institutions around the U.S., collaborates with media organizations such as The New York Times, Vox, The Washington Post, NBC, and KHN, and provides insights and recommendations to national and state legislators.
We are looking for Research Assistants to work collaboratively analyzing HCCI’s expansive commercial and QE Medicare claims data. This position is ideal for candidates seeking to conduct empirical research in preparation for an advanced degree in a quantitative field as well as those interested in becoming deeply immersed in the many facets of health care. Position will be full-time with 40-hour work weeks.
