As an Associate in Research, you will lead the Center for Global Women’s Health Technologies STEM education program, called Ignite.

This hire will work directly with collaborators implementing Ignite in Peru, Guatemala, and the Durham Public School System. This hire will also mentor Duke undergraduate students who will spend one summer in each location implementing and evaluating the Ignite program across contexts.
