WorldPop Research Positions

The WorldPop programme, based at the University of Southampton, is seeking to recruit two researchers to assist with spatial demographic analyses in a number of low-income countries around the world. We require enthusiastic statistical analysts to work on a range of research projects relating to high-resolution predictive mapping of population distributions and demographics based on household survey, census and bespoke survey data, along with high-resolution geospatial covariate data layers. The work will be foundational to a new collaborative programme entitled GRID3 (Geospatial Reference, Infrastructure and Demographic Data for Development) with partners at National Statistics Offices, the Flowminder Foundation, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, DFID, CIESIN and UNFPA, and will be used to guide projects ranging from population enumeration to delivery of health programs and alleviation of poverty. As well as joining the vibrant and well-connected WorldPop and Flowminder Foundation teams, you will have opportunities to lead high-impact publications.
