Research and Recruitment Opportunities

The Lurie Institute offers a number of opportunities for researchers interested in topics related to public policy, healthcare outcomes and practices, financial outcomes and other salient issues affecting people with disabilities and their families. We offer a postdoctoral program for scholars who have recently completed their doctorates and wish to augment their research skills in disability-focused areas, and occasionally recruit participants to help us in our research. Our research projects place a strong emphasis on including the voices of people with disabilities, and we encourage people with lived experience to participate in our studies.  

Current Research Opportunities: 

Are you a deaf or hard of hearing mom who has given birth within the past 5 years?

The Lurie Institute for Disability Policy at Brandeis University in partnership with Dr. Michael McKee of University of Michigan Family Medicine, are looking for participants to help improve health care for deaf and hard of hearing moms.
