A woman and a man working together

Help us transform health for all

Our Institute is made up of a multidisciplinary group of talented people with a common ambition to empower people to transform their health and that of others. It’s this drive, and the collaborative nature of everything that we do, which helps us tackle health challenges across the globe. 

IGHI recognises the importance of having a diverse workforce, who bring a diverse set of ideas, skills and experiences. To make a real difference in global health, we strive to have an institute that listens to everyone’s voices. No one should be left behind in healthcare and this cannot be achieved without an inclusive environment.     

We proudly support Imperial’s ‘Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Strategy: Inclusive excellence’. The strategy actively seeks to ensure equality, diversity and inclusion are integrated across the College and positive action is made to improve the opportunities and experiences of underrepresented groups.

Current vacancies

This is an opportunity to lead two research studies looking at how people can be better supported in their own homes at the end of life.  Our team at the Helix Centre has developed a set of digital and paper-based interventions – called “Palliate” – to help train and support lay carers to administer symptom relief at end of life.  We are now setting out to evaluate the safety and experience of the intervention when used by members of the public, as well as to explore opportunities and barriers to adoption through qualitative research with different stakeholder groups.  We are therefore looking for a Research Associate or Research Assistant to lead that work.

applications for society and beyond.”

Impactful work

"As a designer, being able to work so closely with clinicians, academics, engineers alongside other designers means IGHI is genuinely a unique place to do incredibly impactful work. We get to tackle really tough health challenges and bring together so many varied skills and perspectives. It’s never a dull day here, and I leave every day feeling deeply satisfied."
