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.


Modeling Analyst – VPD

We seek a full-time Modeling Analyst to work as part of the IDM global development research team to collaborate on the development, refinement, and application of sophisticated infectious disease models for epidemiological research and eradication-campaign planning, focusing primarily on measles. The analyst will work closely with scientists on the team to design and execute model-based experiments that investigate pressing questions in disease control and eradication policy.

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.


Positions filled


Postdoctoral Research Scientist – Behavior-epidemiological disease transmission modeling

We seek a full-time Postdoctoral Research Scientist to work as part of the IDM research team and collaborate on the development, refinement, and utilization of infectious disease and behavior-change models for epidemiological research, with a focus on understanding how disease affects human behavior and vice versa.


Postdoctoral Research Scientist—Data, Dynamics, and Analytics

We seek a postdoctoral research scientist to join the IDM Data, Dynamics, and Analytics team for a 2-3 year period. The researcher will be focused on investigating genomic data collected from the spread of infectious diseases. Importantly, the research aims to better understand how genomic data can inform operational decision-making in elimination settings, disease transmission modeling, and developing surveillance strategies during outbreaks and intervention programs.

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.
