Research Analyst

The Infectious Disease Dynamics group in the Department of Epidemiology is seeking to hire a Research Analyst for the Seroanalytics Hub project, where computational approaches to integrated, multipathogen serological surveillance will be further developed, optimized, and disseminated globally. Seroanalytics, the practice of collecting and analyzing antibody data in individuals and populations, has emerged as a potentially efficient and impactful tool for informing disease prevention and control programs. The overarching objective of this project is to produce a centralized resource explicitly focused on how data derived from integrated serosurveillance systems can be used and appropriately interpreted across pathogens and settings. This position will contribute to a scoping review of the available seroanalytics literature to synthesize the current seroanalytics landscape for various pathogens and use cases. This will encompass a review of scientific literature specific to the Luminex multiplex bead assay (MBA) for pathogen serosurveillance and engagement with multilateral organizations and universities actively involved in integrated serosurveillance. In addition, there will be opportunities to develop open source seroepidemiologic resources for researchers and agencies, including the development of analytical tools in R for integrated serosurveillance and training materials to support the dissemination of such tools.

Minimum Qualifications
  • Bachelor's Degree in related discipline.
  • Three years related experience.
  • Additional education may substitute for required experience to the extent permitted by the JHU equivalency formula.

Preferred Qualifications
  • Master's Degree in Biostatistics, Epidemiology, or a related field preferred.
  • Experience writing scientific papers.
  • Strong organizational skills.
