Researcher, Pandemics

IHME has an excellent opportunity for a Researcher to join our Pandemics Team. IHME researchers analyze and produce key estimates for their assigned research team and will assess all available 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 specifically 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.

You will be integrally involved in producing, critiquing, improving, and disseminating results. You already have a command of epidemiology, statistics, disease modeling, 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.
