Job Description

Opening for Research Fellow in Public Health Data Analytics 


With growing inequality, climate change, public health crises, agricultural distress, and other social and economic problems, there is an increasing need to explore the use of Information and Communication Technologies for Development (ICTD). The area of ICTD has seen many innovations in the last two decades, especially driven by the increasing digitalization in the world, and dozens of social enterprises now specialize in health-tech, agri-tech, climate-tech, etc. and impact millions of lives.  

The Appropriate Computing Technologies for Development (ACT4D) research group at IIT Delhi has been a pioneer in this area. We have built, deployed, and scaled ICTs for content distribution in rural areas, voice-based interfaces for less-literate people, analysis of socio-economic data for evidence based policy design, digitization of paper forms, and analytics on public health data for actionable insights, among other areas. Our work has been adopted extensively by social enterprises and development sector organizations, and has influenced the use of ICTs in the government. Our work has been supported by Google, Intel, the Ford Foundation, DST, MEITY, GIZ, and Grand Challenges India. Our graduates have gone on to continue their research at prominent labs such as Microsoft Research, SOAS, Kings College London, Georgia Tech, University of Texas at Austin, and in the academia.

Gram Vaani (), an award winning social enterprise, was originally incubated at ACT4D, and has now grown to a team of 70+ professionals. We work across 15 states in India and several African countries. Over a million users engaged with our platforms during the COVID-19 lockdown. We have built technologies that power community radio stations, deliver health and nutrition advice to millions of women Self Help Group members, build solidarity among labour union members and social movement activists, and hold local governments accountable to provide quality social protection to vulnerable families. 

The combined team at ACT4D and Gram Vaani brings together diverse skillsets with full-stack developers, AI/ML wizards, development communications and journalism experts, community organizers and mobilizers, creative content authors and recording artists, and business development and programme management teams. 

If you are looking for a place where you can put your technology and analytical skills to increase humanism in society then this is the place for you – you will not only bring impact to millions of people; you will also learn how to build and talk about the use and impact of bottom-up tools used meaningfully in ways that can genuinely make the world a better place. 

The current position of a research fellow is highly recommended for recent undergraduates who want to go for further studies and want to gain research experience doing strong applied work that can lead to direct impact in the lives of the poor. Research fellows from our group have gone on to their Masters and PhD in top US and UK universities.
