Spatial Epidemiologist

Posted: 10/10/2017 (Employment)

ICF has an opening for a Spatial Epidemiologist for its Demographic and Health Surveys (DHS) Program. The DHS Program is a US Agency for International Development (USAID) funded project that supports the collection of demographic and health data through nationally representative population and facility-based surveys.

The Spatial Epidemiologist will primarily focus on using spatial analysis techniques to analyze demographic and health issues using the DHS survey data. Tasks will include: creating spatial analysis outputs for use in program decision making, developing and conducting research and analysis of DHS spatial and survey data, collaborating with other staff to integrate geographic data in their analyses, writing analytical reports for publication, management and oversight of spatial data coming in from the field, and providing guidance on appropriate data use. Creation and use of interpolated (gridded) surfaces is an expanding field within the DHS and will be one area of focus of the position. The Spatial Epidemiologist would also be involved in other cross-cutting projects at ICF with a need for geo-spatial analysis including biodiversity and health, nutrition and agriculture.  Some travel internationally is possible but would likely be less than 15% of the time. The full-time position is based in Rockville, MD (in the Washington, DC metro area).
