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.
We seek a full-time Research Scientist to join IDM’s Applied Math team, which aims to develop algorithms and workflows that increase the usability, capability, and efficiency of the end-to-end modeling process. The Research Scientist will conduct novel and translational research to support the use of data and models in making better decisions regarding health and development. In addition to algorithm development, the scientist will apply and refine these methods in partnership with programmatic teams within IDM and beyond. Successful applicants will command a deep and diverse technical knowledge of applied mathematics, computer science, and statistics.
We seek a full-time Research Scientist to work as part of the IDM global development research team to collaborate on the development, refinement, and application of sophisticated models of vaccine-preventable infectious diseases for epidemiological research and eradication-campaign planning, focusing primarily on immediate applications to measles. The scientific responsibilities of this role will include a combination of: analyzing existing data on immunization and disease incidence; utilizing and refining IDM’s existing measles models; identifying promising new modeling approaches in the literature and implementing them
The HIV and TB research programs at IDM provide analytical support to our strategic partners on population-level dynamics questions, including predictions of epidemic trends, impacts of intervention-targeting scenarios, target product profiles for specific use cases, and insights into risk factors and drivers of variability in epidemic patterns across demographic, temporal, and spatial scales. The HIV and TB Research Manager, reporting to the Director of Global Health Research, will work closely with the other software and research groups at IDM to develop and apply a reusable set of open-source modeling tools to address specific policy questions, while also advancing their use more widely in the community.
We seek a full-time Research Statistician to identify and lead or support research projects relevant to different aspects of the group’s analysis and modeling work (e.g. Polio, vaccine preventable diseases, health delivery), as well as to actively partner/support with other teams at IDM (e.g. MNCH, Health Economics, Measles, Epidemiology, Malaria, HIV/TB, etc). Joining our group provides unique opportunities to interact with global health policy makers, to collaborate with world-class research laboratories and non-profit organizations, and to contribute to global and national disease eradication strategies.
The Director of Software Engineering reports to the Vice President & General Manager of IDM and will work directly with the software and research managers to establish overall software strategy, software organizational effectiveness, and the implementation of best-practice software development processes in support of IDM’s mission.
