We're always seeking extraordinary and creative individuals to tackle the challenging research problems in global health. The Institute for Disease Modeling (IDM) is a highly dynamic organization with a work environment that is defined by innovation and collaboration. Our research and software teams are made up of a diverse and talented group of individuals attacking the complex problems found within global health to improve the world we live in. As part of Intellectual Ventures Global Good initiative, IDM is committed to improving and saving lives in developing countries through the use of quantitative analysis.

RESEARCH

Research Analyst – healthcare delivery

We seek a full-time Research Analyst to work as part of the IDM analysis and model usage center and to gather, analyze, and model data about healthcare delivery in countries with a high burden of communicable diseases.

Postdoctoral Research Scientist – HIV Modeling

We seek a postdoctoral researcher to join the IDM HIV modeling team for a three-year term. The researcher will collaborate on the development, refinement, and utilization of a sophisticated epidemiological model of HIV transmission; analyze epidemiologically- and policy-relevant data sets; and help to identify critical knowledge gaps.

SOFTWARE

Senior Technical Writer

IDM is looking for a versatile Senior Technical Writer to produce high-quality documentation that supports our research endeavors. You will be responsible for producing documentation for IDM's disease modeling software, documenting components and features in an agile release process for modelers and non-modelers alike, including scientists and public health professionals. You will contribute new ideas on how best to explore learning the epidemiology models and new formats that would best reach our target audience. You will also provide ongoing content for the team’s website, including news and events and spotlighting software features and tutorials. You will contribute to our video learning center by writing content for video tutorials.

Software Test Engineer

We seek a Test Engineer that will work on testing and developing the high-performance computing pipeline for infectious disease modeling. This position will focus more on the pipeline parts of this architecture, and less on the disease modeling specifics, although some of the disease model will be learned so that the tester can simulate user scenarios.

POST-DOCTORAL PROGRAM

There are no current post-doctoral opportunities.


IDM partners with selected universities, NGOs, government ministries, and other research and public health institutions focused on researching new ways to understand and combat diseases both locally and globally.
