IHME has an excellent opportunity for a Researcher to join the GBD Cancer 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 incidence, prevalence, causes of death, and related determinants from a variety of sources – from vital registration systems, literature, and cancer registries. 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.
You will be integrally involved in producing, critiquing, improving, and disseminating cancer-specific 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. 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 advances and are able to translate these into your research. 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.
Overall, Researchers are critical members of agile, dynamic research teams. They are accountable for achieving deliverables to make key indicators available and to produce ground-breaking science. This position is contingent on project funding availability.
• Develop a core understanding of GBD cancer methodology and its components.
• Master’s degree in public health, epidemiology, statistics, biostatistics, math, economics, quantitative social sciences, or related discipline plus 1 year of related experience, or equivalent combination of education and experience.
Equivalent education/experience will substitute for all minimum qualifications except when there are legal requirements, such as a license/certification/registration.
• Proven interest and some experience in a given disease, risk, key indicator, methodological area, and the related data sources and scientific underpinnings.
• Track record of success in co-authorship on scientific papers, presenting results, and representing research at meetings.
• Weekend and evening work sometimes required.
