  • Ability to understand policy documents and apply this understanding in a variety of contexts; an educational background in health sciences may be beneficial.
  • Ability to learn our methodology and develop a thorough understanding of how directly and indirectly identifying information contributes to the risk of re-identification. This is generally demonstrated through experience and comfort with scientific and quantitative disciplines for example, clinical research, STEM fields, etc.
  • Exceptional detail-orientation.
  • Well-developed communication and interpersonal skills.
  • The drive to meet exacting deadlines and the flexibility to adapt to shifting priorities.
