Help our members find the right answer
We want free-thinkers. Agile interviewers. Witty writers. Team players. Are you up for the challenge?
You're driven to make the case. To break down complex ideas and teach others about the key takeaways. To talk to the leading experts in a field—and poke holes in the conventional wisdom.
You're not satisfied with an answer. You want the right answer.
You sound like one of our researchers.
Careers for the Intellectually Curious
Our researchers embed in a topic area, spending months mastering the terrain through on-site interviews, extensive analysis, and pressure-tested hypotheses.
The Advisory Board's specialists on hospital staffing examine U.S. economic trends and community college enrollment patterns. Our nursing strategists shadow RNs as they make trips to patient bedsides. Infection-control researchers identify how the best providers treat everything from Aspergillosis to Zygomycosis.
They go deep on the problems facing hospitals and health systems—
—and won't let up until they're solved.
What We Look For
The best researchers never settle for staying behind a stack of papers.
They're comfortable formulating and defending their points of view. Persuading colleagues through their writing and visuals. Knowing when their research has wandered down the wrong path—or led them to the right answer.
We hire many recent college graduates into our research ranks as strategic analysts, working on a larger team that produces insights for studies, webconferences, and annual meetings. More experienced researchers may join the firm as consultants, leading their own research initiatives and presenting at member hospitals and health systems.
