Job Title: Researcher
Specialty Areas: Clinical Linguistics; Discourse Analysis; General Linguistics;
Verilogue is seeking an
enthusiastic language and discourse specialist to join our team of healthcare communication experts. The
ideal candidate will have training in interactional sociolinguistics (e.g., conversation analysis,
narrative analysis, ethnographic methods, sociolinguistic fieldwork, etc.), the ability to identify and
clearly communicate research insights to internal teams and clients, and the nimbleness required to
juggle academic theory and business sensibility.
Verilogue’s mission is to inspire
communication that makes a positive impact on healthcare practitioners, patients, and their families. We
live in the heart of the conversation and draw insight from interactions with the human in mind. As a
member of our insights and analytics group, you will create understanding and empathy around
individuals’ interactional and interpersonal needs – for our clients and for our sister agency partners.
Your research on physician-patient conversations will help our clients be a “fly-on-the-wall” in the
exam-room and your insights will inspire them to improve disease education, build treatment awareness,
and establish trusting relationships in the healthcare space.
As a researcher, you won’t have to worry about transcribing your own data, but we
will look to you to:
- Analyze conversations between healthcare professionals and patients.
Synthesize linguistic patterns into coherent and meaningful insights for client marketing research
- Advocate research findings to internal and client audiences through written reports
(PowerPoint) and in-person presentations.
In addition to being intensely curious about
language, we also expect our researchers to have:
- Polished writing and presentation skills.
A strong sense of initiative, independence, and ingenuity.
- Excellent interpersonal, communication
and collaboration skills.
- An innate sense of organization, particularly when it comes to
understanding and addressing complex research questions.
- A commitment to promised deadlines.
An interest in the healthcare industry.
- Proficiency in Microsoft Office Suite.
- BA/BS degree in linguistics, or other related fields with advanced coursework in linguistics.
0-2 years of work experience in a professional business environment.
Availability and willingness to
travel 5 – 10%
- Knowledge of the pharmaceutical and healthcare
industry or specific health-related conditions is preferred.
- Proven organizational skills
History of interacting with medical professionals a plus
