Your greatest work is ahead!


We are in search of a Quantitative Analyst / Data Scientist to join our project supporting HHS in Washington DC. Be part of a team performing a broad and ever-changing array of data science projects supporting national health preparedness and the ongoing COVID-19 response. As a member of this team, you will be utilizing your experience to conduct a broad range of quantitative analyses. Examples of such efforts include: healthcare cost-benefit analyses; economic impact analyses; data exploration; constructing visualization of large and complex data, epidemiological analyses of infectious diseases; tracking the manufacture, allocation, and distribution of medical counter-measures; as well as statistical analyses of clinical trial data. Analyses and modeling will focus on public health response and medical countermeasure mitigation.

The analyst will work as both part of a team on large-scale analyses as well as independently investigate problems. Many of these efforts have been recognized as being difficult to solve and require the sophistication, creativity, and judgment of an established and competent data scientist. The position will require significant interaction with cross-functional teams of subject matter experts in non-quantitative fields, so communication skills are key to help understand the analysis needs as well as to brief the methodology and outcomes.
