Healthcare Policy Consultant

Washington, DC
About This Position
FiscalNote Markets is seeking an experienced Healthcare Policy Consultant to direct the firm’s introduction of a healthcare sector-focused research practice. An ideal candidate will have substantial experience with state and federal healthcare policy, a fluency with key political and market-driven sector themes, and the ability to translate complex and nuanced concepts into clear, actionable ideas. Our clients are large, institutional investors, and an analyst must successfully chart a course between policy and markets – understanding what policy shifts may ultimately affect companies, and helping investors be predictive about metastasizing political, regulatory, or litigation catalysts.
Key themes impacting markets today include issues as broad and complex as single-payer and universal coverage policy proposals, drug pricing reforms, and other regulatory and legislative actions to control health costs at the state and federal levels, as well as opioid litigation, ACA litigation, and industry M&A activity. You will be the face of our healthcare practice, and, as with any start up, it’s a big job.

This is a remote or on-site opportunity that will work closely with our teams in New York and Washington, DC.
