The Center for Global Women’s health technologies has an opening for an Associate in Research. The key objectives are understanding how the current model for cervical cancer prevention contributes to high incidence of morbidity and mortality of the disease, particularly in low and middle-income countries. You will learn about the process of human-centered design, the technologies we have developed (the Pocket Colposcope) to overcome barriers to screening/care, and how to implement those strategies in local and international clinical settings. Fellows will become adept at using the Pocket Colposcope and the appropriate software to provide technical support to international clinic partners and engage in clinical research through our ongoing study in Duke’s Gynecological Clinic as well as other international sites. Through their experience with our center, students will gain a rich understanding of interdisciplinary collaboration in innovation, education, and empowerment.

Please expect that up to 20% of your job will be administrative as you will be expected to assist lab staff in managing the center’s research and grant writing.

The minimum degree requirement is a Bachelors degree.
