Assistant Professor for the Preparing and Responding to Emerging Pandemics (PREP) cluster, with expertise in infectious disease dynamics

The Department of Epidemiology in the Bloomberg School of Public Health is recruiting Assistant Professor for the Preparing and Responding to Emerging Pandemics (PREP) cluster, with expertise in infectious disease dynamics (including modeling, phylogenetics/phylodynamics, and immuno-epidemiology).

The candidate we expect to appoint to this tenure-track position will have the following characteristics:

Experience and evidence of productivity in using theoretical and computational approaches to understand the epidemiology and ecology of infectious diseases
Willingness and excitement to work with and contribute to a group using analytical, field, laboratory and trial methods to explore scientifically interest in and policy-relevant issues in emerging infectious diseases

Specifically, we are seeking individuals who have training and extensive experience in one or more than one of the following areas:

A doctorate in epidemiology, ecology, virology, microbiology, immunology, engineering or equivalent training
Experience in statistical analysis of pathogen transmission, mathematical and computational modeling, phylodynamic methods and/or immunodynamics models.

The successful candidate will be expected to contribute to teaching courses in infectious disease epidemiology and dynamics. Candidates who combine methodological and modeling work with experience in field epidemiology and data collection are particularly encouraged to apply. While the position does not require a disease-specific focus, candidates with research interests in emerging and re-emerging infections are encouraged to apply.
