In times of uncertainty, the ability to identify future trends has never been more important. Are you eager to learn and understand more about the medical, healthcare, societal and lifestyle factors that drive long-term changes in the global insurance industry?
We are looking for a highly motivated and curious person, who will support us as we investigate a wide range of topics from the individual outcomes of health forecasting, to mortality research, cancer & heart attack rates and the COVID-19 pandemic.
