We're always seeking extraordinary and creative individuals to tackle the challenging research problems in global health. The Institute for Disease Modeling (IDM) is a highly dynamic organization with a work environment that is defined by innovation and collaboration. Our research and software teams are made up of a diverse and talented group of individuals attacking the complex problems found within global health to improve the world we live in. As part of Intellectual Ventures Global Good initiative, IDM is committed to improving and saving lives in developing countries through the use of quantitative analysis.


Postdoctoral Research Scientist – HIV Modeling

We seek a postdoctoral researcher to join the IDM HIV modeling team for a three-year term. The researcher will collaborate on the development, refinement, and utilization of a sophisticated epidemiological model of HIV transmission; analyze epidemiologically- and policy-relevant data sets; and help to identify critical knowledge gaps.

Research Economist - Global Health

We seek a research economist who will work to answer policy-relevant questions by conducting cost-benefit and cost-effectiveness analyses of ongoing disease control and eradication programs, of proposed novel programs, e.g., vaccine introduction, treatment guideline expansion, as well as clinical trials and other data gathering efforts.


There are no current software opportunities.


Postdoctoral Research Scientist – Multiscale disease transmission modeling

We seek a three year full-time Postdoctoral Research Scientist to work as part of the IDM research team and collaborate on the development, refinement, and utilization of infectious disease models for epidemiological research, with a focus on polio eradication
