We seek an early career PhD-level researcher with interest in health systems research and skills in research design, statistics, implementation science, and statistical programming. We are looking for an independent thinker who works well in teams, collaborates well with people from other disciplines, and brings curiosity and high standards to the scientific enterprise.
Although the researcher will frequently work independently, s/he will be supported by Ariadne’s scientific leadership, and will join a cohesive team of statistical analytic staff, data architects, research assistants, and program managers. As part of the Labs’ matrix structure, the researcher will sit on the Data Science team on the Science & Technology platform and will work with clinical research teams in a variety of health domains, such as surgical safety, palliative care, safe childbirth, and primary health care.
We welcome applicants with backgrounds in public health, epidemiology, health policy, biostatistics, or related fields. A cover letter is required.
