Eastern AHSN careers jobs

We are excited to be able to offer a paid summer internship with our health informatics team at Eastern AHSN (Academic Health Science Network).

  • Simple data transformations
  • Data frame creation/manipulation
  • Mapping and dashboard visualisations
  • HTML rendered outputs; and, most importantly…
  • An interest in data and health innovation.

We have a specific project lined up that will involve working alongside team members to gather requirements, obtain, load and curate data, and then create and refine visualisations. We can offer support with the technical skills, and while you are with us, give you some time with key people across the organisation so you can get a feel for what we do at Eastern AHSN to help turn great ideas into positive health impact.

This role can be undertaken remotely or from our offices in Cambridge (or a combination of the two.) We do ask that you are able to attend the office in person a minimum of two or three times throughout the placement to meet with colleagues.
