Be part of a collaborative and interdisciplinary group modeling spatial dynamics of RSV and implications for future vaccine strategies.

We are looking to hire a postdoctoral associate on an NIH-funded study on the spatial dynamics of RSV in the United States and implications of this variability for alternative vaccination strategies. This is a collaborative project led by Drs. Ginny Pitzer, Dan Weinberger, and Josh Warren at the Yale School of Public Health and involving clinical and public health collaborators around the world. The goal of the project is to characterize drivers of spatial heterogeneity in RSV epidemics, to use this information to inform vaccination strategies, and to develop statistical tools to improve local monitoring of vaccine impact.

Applicants must have a doctoral degree from an accredited institution. The ideal applicant will have strong experience in mathematical modeling, statistics, engineering, or other quantitative fields and will have the ability to work in an interdisciplinary team. Opportunities are available to shape the specifics and scope of the project. Expertise with statistical programming (R or MATLAB) is required. The candidate should be able to demonstrate evidence of strong written and oral communication skills and past productivity. The initial funding is for 2 years, with competitive pay.
Please send a CV, 1 page personal statement, and contact information for 3 references to daniel.weinberger@yale.edu and virginia.pitzer@yale.edu.
