Founded in 2002 by President William J. Clinton and Ira C. Magaziner, the Clinton Health Access Initiative, Inc. (CHAI) is a global health organization committed to saving lives and reducing the burden of disease in low-and middle-income countries (LMICs), while strengthening the capabilities of governments and the private sector in those countries to create and sustain high-quality health systems that can succeed without our assistance.

Laboratory Services Team
The Research Associate will be a member of CHAI’s Laboratory Services Team (LST). The Research Associate will report to Senior Scientist on LST, and will work closely with members from both CHAI country teams and global teams.
Provision of high quality diagnostic services is one of the leading priorities of CHAI’s Laboratory service team (LST). LST plays the lead role in coordinating work on access to diagnostics, working closely with test manufacturers, governments, and multilateral organizations to lower prices, scale up use of proven diagnostic tools and products that expand service delivery, and accelerate the entry and uptake of new innovative products for HIV, TB, HCV and COVID-19 (among other communicable and non-communicable diseases). LST’s work often catalyzes the market in an environment where funding streams are limited; LST works with high-volume, early-adopter countries to build a healthy, competitive global market for novel point-of-care (POC) and central lab-based products for diagnostics.
The Evans Research (at Emory University) seeks a world free from violence. To contribute towards this goal the team focuses its research endeavors on public health and human rights violence prevention and response. Current research projects focus on intimate partner violence; femicide; child abuse and neglect; and the commercial sexual exploitation of children in both domestic and international settings. All team members must be self-motivated, passionate, able to work independently, detail oriented, and able to work efficiently to reach targets (weekly and monthly). This position is responsible for organizing, coordinating, and planning operational facets of our program and its related activities, which include, but are not limited to the following: establishing long-term operational objectives, researching factors that may influence the success of the program, and working with individuals or groups to research and document program requirements in order to provide appropriate input into the development of strategic plans and the implementation of programmatic activities.
The employee will interface with research and administrative staff at Emory Rollins School of Public Health and with collaborating partners based at various locations throughout the world. May expand to other sites/countries, contingent upon funding. This position will develop work plans to accomplish program goals and objectives and monitor progress toward their achievement.
Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) has an urgent need for Epidemiologists. MSF Epidemiologists typically work in three areas: outbreak response/control, surveys, and research.
You may be called upon to establish a surveillance system for a meningitis [doctorswithoutborders.org] or cholera [doctorswithoutborders.org] outbreak, while also taking part in active case finding and in the planning of vaccination campaigns or water-sanitation interventions. You might also be asked to conduct a mortality survey or to design and implement a monitoring and evaluation plan for targeted diseases. MSF epidemiologists develop data collection systems—from chart forms to database management systems—for a wide range of project health services and serve as the data focal point for a project. In conjunction with the medical team, they will problem-solve data collection issues to ensure good quality data that does not interfere with rapid patient care. Your responsibilities may also include the recruitment, management, and training of local staff involved in data collection, data entry, research, and other activities, as well as regular analysis of data and reporting of trends to project coordination staff.
We are URGENTLY recruiting Epidemiologists for our projects in 70+ countries around the world. This could be a great opportunity for anyone who has practical skills in the design, implementation, and evaluation of surveys, and/or in quantitative/qualitative research methods and an interest in giving back to the global community. Below is a flyer and a graphic with some basic information about the job profile and requirements. Any applicants interested in applying should send their CV or resume to Melissa.firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line “Epidemiologists”.
