Research Scientist, Pandemics

IHME has an excellent opportunity for a Research Scientist to join our Pandemics Team. This position will work on IHME’s groundbreaking COVID-19 projections project, developing and conducting novel analysis to measure the COVID-19 pandemic. Specifically, this Research Scientist will focus on contributing to our production pipeline to publish weekly COVID-19 projection updates, model for the spread of COVID-19 variants around the world, and produce estimates of several key covariates, such as mobility, vaccination, testing, mask use, etc.

We are looking for someone ready to advance in their career in global health research. As a Research Scientist you will be contributing to research design and training, leading, and/or mentoring junior staff. IHME researchers analyze and produce key estimates for their assigned research team and will assess all available relevant quantitative data – including those on causes of death, epidemiology, and a range of determinants such as education and income – from surveys, vital registration, censuses, literature, registries, and administrative records.

You will be integrally involved in producing, critiquing, improving, and disseminating results. You are someone who is capable of keeping your team on track to meet deadlines and research objectives. You already have a publication record, and at IHME, you will build out your portfolio with several peer-reviewed papers. You thrive in a collaborative work environment and are capable of working on multiple projects concurrently while meeting deadlines. You keep current of recent scientific, engineering, and technical advances and are able to translate these into your research.
