This vacancy is based in Boston, MA
What we are looking for
We are looking for a highly motivated Psychometrician or Senior Psychometrician with a passion for applying their knowledge to support development, validation and interpretation of COA measures. You will have a Masters or PhD in Psychometrics, Quantitative Psychology, Educational Measurement or a related field. The ideal candidate would have knowledge of advanced psychometric methods including factor analysis and item response theory/Rasch analysis and experience of performing analyses in statistical software (e.g. SAS, Stata, R, Mplus), although this is only essential for the senior role. Previous experience of working in a healthcare consultancy or academic group would be desirable, but we are open to training the right candidate with transferable skills from other disciplines. This is an excellent opportunity for a talented and ambitious individual who would relish in working in a fast-paced but fun environment.
How you fit in
With your background in quantitative research you will join a vibrant team of psychometricians, statisticians and SAS programmers who partner with a broader team of qualitative researchers/COA measurement specialists. In an exciting and varied role you will be involved in study design, writing/reviewing psychometric study protocols, writing/reviewing Statistical Analysis Plans and collaborating with the SAS programming team to prepare associated table shells. You will also be involved in providing and/or reviewing psychometric analyses, providing input to the interpretation of results and discussing with our clients. In your role you will serve as a psychometric consultant internally for the wider Adelphi Values research team and deliver internal training on relevant methodologies. You will also be encouraged and supported to present work externally at conferences and via peer-reviewed publications. Opportunities to develop your knowledge through ongoing training and academic collaboration will also be provided.
