About the job
The Clinical Team helps Google achieve its mission by providing
clinical leadership, insights, and guidance for the development of
products, services, and research that help everyone live more life
every day. It supports products across Google that touch the health
and well-being of people on a global scale. It is a
multidisciplinary team of doctors, nurses, and other health
professionals, as well as clinical researchers, public health
experts, and people who have run health systems, forming a global
team with experience across every layer of health. This team works
closely with other groups within Google and across Alphabet.
You are an experienced, quantitative healthcare scientist with a
demonstrated track record in epidemiology. You have a deep
understanding of traditional evaluative models, with experience of
applying this lens to new technologies such as machine learning
approaches in health.
As a clinical scientist, you'll develop approaches for measuring
impact that help drive products that help improve health journeys
for users. You'll utilize not only your scientific expertise, but
also your excellent listening, communication, and leadership skills
to appropriately shape measurement, evaluation, and discovery that
help shape the content, design, and execution of products.
You are highly experienced in working cross functionally,
ideally with experience in working with non-clinical teams such as
software design, engineering, product management, regulatory
affairs and research teams. You will have a demonstrable background
working as an epidemiologist, including with peer-reviewed
publications, with recognized expertise in research methods and
their impact on public health and healthcare.
Google Health has made major advances in healthcare research,
such as detecting eye disease more quickly and accurately than
experts, planning cancer radiotherapy treatment in seconds rather
than hours, and working to detect patient deterioration before it
happens with electronic records.
Fundamental research is at the core of Google Health - the
multidisciplinary team collaborates with partners to publish novel
research in renowned scientific journals. They then work to apply
this research into the medical field, whether through Streams, our
clinical assistant app, or other clinical hardware and products
developed in Google. Working alongside colleagues across Google,
you'll help make this vision a reality.
- Partner closely with product and research teams to co-design
and conduct methodologically rigorous evaluations and impact
assessments for a range of health- and public-health-related
- Provide epidemiological expertise to relevant Google product
and research teams, ensuring rigorous study design and appropriate
epidemiological methods are incorporated into the teams' work and
- Identify relevant advances in the field, and bring these to
bear on research and product development.
- Serve as an internal and external voice for Google Health's
work related to epidemiology and public health.
