Advancing New Standards in Reproductive Health (ANSIRH), part of the Bixby Center for Global Reproductive Health at the University of California, San Francisco, is seeking a Professional Researcher to conduct research and data analysis on several contraceptive and unintended pregnancy-related studies. ANSIRH is a multidisciplinary team dedicated to rigorous, innovative research on complex issues that affect people’s reproductive lives.
For this position, we are looking for a quantitatively-trained researcher with a Ph.D. in demography, sociology, epidemiology, public health, health services research or health economics, although researchers from other disciplines will be considered. We are interested in researchers with expertise in the following areas: unintended pregnancy, contraceptive and/or abortion access, or reproductive health inequities. Candidates must have outstanding academic writing skills and a strong background in epidemiologic study design and quantitative data analysis.
The researcher will work on several data analyses and scientific publications on unintended pregnancy and social inequities. Studies include a contraceptive attitude measure development study, a randomized trial on contraceptive education, a national survey of abortion attitudes, and the Attitudes and Decision-Making After Pregnancy Testing (ADAPT) study, which examines how unintended pregnancy affects women’s and infants’ health and well-being.
The researcher will work directly with Dr. Corinne Rocca, Assistant Professor and epidemiologist, and other members of the team to design and conduct research on unintended pregnancy. Responsibilities will include conducting literature reviews, data analyses, presenting at scientific conferences and publishing papers in the peer-reviewed literature.
