The successful candidate will be responsible for conducting research and analyzing data within the Ghana randomized air pollution and health study (GRAPHS).

We recruit pregnant women into LPG, efficient cookstove, and control arms and track birth weight and physician-assessed severe pneumonia incidence in the first year of life.

  • Experience with large cohort studies and environmental data sets as well as knowledge in the field of data analysis, statistical modeling and predictive modeling
