Our World in Data is a non-profit, creative commons web publication based at The Oxford Martin School which makes research about global issues freely available to everyone. We cover topics like extreme poverty, fertility rates, income inequality, polio, and climate change, using data visualizations to convey complex information in an accessible way.
If you have, or are close to obtaining, a PhD/DPhil in a relevant area and can demonstrate specialist expertise in economics, demography, population health sciences, global health, epidemiology or public health to benefit the research programme, excellent communication skills, including the ability to disseminate complex research to the general public, then this role within the Our World in Data team is for you!
As a Postdoctoral Research Officer, you will not only manage your own research but also contribute to the management and coordination of research activities across Our World in Data’s remit, as well as suggesting new areas for the team to explore. As a member of the team, you will work with Dr Max Roser, Project Director, to: contribute ideas for new research projects, work independently to prepare working theories, gather, analyse and present qualitative and/or quantitative data from a variety of sources and prepare, review and publish articles and data visualisations for the Our World in Data website.
The closing date for applications is 12.00 noon on Wednesday 4 September 2019.
