Job Description

The Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME) has an exciting opportunity to join the team as a Project Officer on the Pandemics team. IHME’s Pandemics team focuses on generating COVID-19 projections for the globe by developing and conducting novel analysis to measure the COVID-19 pandemic. The primary purpose of this position is to ensure the timely production of high-quality estimates on a regular basis, in a way that maximizes efficiency and coordination across the team and enhances team morale. This individual needs to bring high intellectual agility and deft planning and organizational skills in order to push the team to meet high-pressure deadlines for research deliverables. The Project Officer is a key driver in the performance, quality, and efficiency required by the team to routinely produce high-quality, policy-relevant health indicators. This individual must excel at facilitating communication among technical and project staff with varying degrees of experience and from different disciplines.

This position is integral to IHME’s progress on pandemics research projects and its production of deliverables such as interactive tools and data visualizations, scientific publications, policy-relevant estimates of health indicators, conference presentations, and materials for non-scientific audiences, such as policy briefings. The Project Officer will manage the results development, production, and dissemination workflow, including cross-cutting coordination between teams within IHME. The Project Officer will help facilitate the modeling of estimates and help to manage various analytic processes that are used to apply innovative analytic methods.
