IBI is expanding its research capacity with the addition of a Research Associate.


Founded in 1995, the Integrated Benefits Institute (IBI) is a national member association focused on employee health, wellbeing, and productivity. Business leaders, HR professionals, and consultants from multiple industries join the IBI community to access independent research, analytics tools, and educational/networking opportunities to be able to strategically invest in the health of their workforce and maximize productivity and performance of their businesses.

Position Overview

This role is essential to upholding the organization as the leader in unbiased health and productivity research and should have demonstrated research expertise through a track record of high-quality publications (single or co-authored) and invited presentations at professional or scientific conferences. Prior collaboration as part of a cross-disciplinary research team is also desired.

Key Responsibilities

The Research Associate (RA) reports to the Director of Analytics and Research. The RA's primary role is to support the production of rigorous, high-quality studies of health and work, with findings that can be translated into practical, plain-language guidance for executives (the C-Suite) and for HR, employee benefits, disability insurance, risk management, and absence management professionals. The intent is for the RA to engage in the full spectrum of activities that contribute to their professional and personal development and accrue to IBI's reputation as a credible, unbiased source of analysis and information. This includes conducting literature reviews, analyzing research data, conducting one-on-one and focus group interviews, co-authoring peer-reviewed journal articles and non-technical white papers, blogs, and presenting in webinars and at professional and scientific conferences.

The RA will also participate in targeted analytics projects that draw on IBI's database of millions of disability insurance claims from thousands of employer-provided benefits programs (IBI Benchmarking), and from other proprietary and publicly available data sources (such as National Health Interview Survey, Health and Retirement Survey, etc.).
