University of Washington School of Public Health
Researcher or Postdoctoral Fellow, Malaria Modeling Consortium - Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation
Closing Date: open until filled
Posted: June 13, 2018
The Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME) is an independent research center at the University of Washington focused on expanding the quantitative evidence base for health. A core research area for IHME is the Global Burden of Diseases, Injuries, and Risk Factors (GBD) enterprise. A systematic, scientific effort to quantify the comparative magnitude of health loss due to diseases, injuries, and risk factors by age, sex, and geography over time, the GBD is the largest and most comprehensive effort to date to measure epidemiological levels and trends worldwide. The GBD’s aim is to provide policymakers, donors, and researchers with the highest-quality quantitative evidence base to make decisions that achieve better health.
IHME has an exciting opportunity for a Researcher or Postdoctoral Fellow. IHME currently hosts the Malaria Modeling Consortium (MMC) Secretariat, which coordinates research activities by independent modeling groups. The individual will be integrally involved in producing, critiquing, improving, and disseminating results of the MMC. The incumbent must develop an understanding of modeling methodology and must already have a strong command of either epidemiology, statistics, disease modeling, or related interests. The individual will work with senior research leads and take part in the intellectual exchange about how to improve upon the results and in creating papers and presentations that help share the results with broader audiences.
This position is contingent on project funding availability. Candidates possessing specific interest in malaria and modeling are strongly encouraged to apply. Salary and benefits are commensurate with experience.
