Posted: 10/11/2016 (Employment)

The Max Planck Institute for Demographic Research (MPIDR) is accepting applications for a highly qualified Statistical Analyst.

The Statistical Analyst will support the research carried out by the Max Planck Research Group: Gender Gaps in Health and Survival (GGHS) by performing statistical programming and by analyzing large datasets, particularly register datasets and population-based survey datasets. The analyst will also be responsible for cleaning and preparing datasets for analysis, and for providing assistance as needed with other data management activities.

The GGHS investigates whether gender differences in health and mortality are universal across countries and the extent to which ethnic background, social position, civil status, and reproduction drive these differences. The research interests of the group also encompass health trends at older ages, determinants of long-term care use, cohort differences in health at older ages, and related topics.

The Statistical Analyst may also be asked to help teach some courses. Knowledge of German is not a requirement. Consult the link below for more information.
