IHME has an excellent opportunity for a Researcher to join our Resource Tracking US Spending research team. Across IHME, researchers analyze and produce key estimates for their assigned research team and will focus on using data from surveys, vital registration, censuses, published literature, registries, and administrative records. Using established modeling tools and through creation of novel code, researchers incorporate relevant data to produce the most up-to-date and scientifically credible results. Researchers are integrally involved in producing, critiquing, improving, and disseminating results. In addition, researchers work closely with senior research leads and external collaborators and take part in the intellectual exchange about how to improve upon and disseminate the results. Through this, Researchers are expected to interact successfully with a wide range of internal and some external partners, and to describe complex concepts and materials concisely. Overall, Researchers are critical members of agile, dynamic research teams.
The Resource Tracking US Spending research team develops research intended to describe and assess health care spending in the US. Previous research from this team has been published in a wide set of journals, presented around the globe, and offered online through an interactive visualization. The research produced by this team will be extended to focus on subnational geographic variation in order to gain knowledge about changes in health care spending and utilization and spending disparities across the US. The research is tremendously policy-relevant, with the team at a unique moment of expansion in scope. The team’s Researcher will work closely with the faculty lead, a Research Scientist, a team of data analysts and data services specialists, and researchers on the Central Computation and possibly the Clinical Informatics research teams. This position is contingent on project funding, which currently exists until August 2023 with hopes for extension.
• Develop a core understanding of input data used by the team and the quantitative methods used to harmonize and combine data from a wide variety of data sources, with focus on estimating personal health care spending into conditions, age and sex groups, and types of care for over 3,100 US counties.

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 working with a team, completing complex quantitative analysis, and providing written, graphical, and oral explanation of this research.
