Develop statistical models and forecasts of infectious disease spread based on surveillance data @FAU_Germany with @bastistician and #rstats

This PhD position in biostatistics belongs to a new research project hosted at the Institute of Medical Informatics, Biometry and Epidemiology, Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg, Germany. The project is concerned with the statistical analysis of infectious disease spread. Specialized regression methods for surveillance data allow us, for example, to evaluate socio-demographic and environmental factors, and to forecast infectious disease spread. The aim of this project is to extend these statistical modelling frameworks and provide open-source (R) implementations of all methodological developments.

The initial contract will be for 2.5 years and can be extended afterwards.
After the first year, the position involves a small amount of teaching medical students (the course is held in German).

For further information about the position please visit, where you will find the pdf document of this job posting (in German), and contact Dr. Sebastian Meyer.
