Researcher for HIV team at IHME

IHME has an excellent opportunity for a Researcher to join our team. We are looking for someone ready to continue their career in global health research. 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. Using established modeling tools and through creation of novel code, researchers incorporate all relevant data to produce the most up-to-date and scientifically credible results. This position will be a part of the HIV Team, focusing on research looking into the burden of HIV in children and young adolescents.

The HIV team at IHME is currently looking for a Researcher to work on a new research project focusing on the current and future pediatric HIV burden. The researcher will work to quantify the unique contributions of biomedical, behavioral, and structural factors on the burden of HIV/AIDS in children and young adolescents and forecast the future burden of HIV among children and adolescents based on current trends in incidence, prevalence, and mortality, and exposure to risk and protective factors.

You will be integrally involved in producing, critiquing, improving, and disseminating results. You already have a command of epidemiology, statistics, disease modeling, decomposition analyses, or related interests and we will help you develop an understanding of our core research and methodology. Our researchers work with senior research leads and external collaborators and take part in the intellectual exchange about how to improve upon and disseminate the results.
