Number of Positions: 1
About: The Center for Disease Dynamics, Economics & Policy (CDDEP) produces independent, multidisciplinary research to advance the health and wellbeing of human populations around the world. CDDEP projects are global in scope, spanning Africa, Asia, and North America and include scientific studies and policy engagement. The CDDEP team is experienced in addressing country-specific and regional issues, as well as the local and global aspects of global challenges, such as antibiotic resistance and pandemic influenza. CDDEP research is notable for innovative approaches to design and analysis, which are shared widely through publications, presentations and web-based programs. CDDEP has offices in Washington, D.C. and New Delhi and relies on a distinguished team of scientists, public health experts and economists.
Intern Responsibilities: CDDEP has openings for interns in its New Delhi office to work on research related to the intersection of vaccines and antimicrobial resistance, as well as on social norms that promote the overuse of antibiotics and the underuse of vaccines. The position involves locating, pulling, and synthesizing data and evidence from the primary scientific literature. There is potential for motivated candidates to extend this work to do independent research.
Qualifications: Familiarity with ecology, statistics, and experience reading the scientific and social science literature are an asset, as are problem-solving, experience with Excel, and ability to work independently.
