Epi/Math modelling postdoc @SurreyVet, Zoonotic transmission of intestinal worms, collaboration in the Philippines, join @EpiPixels and the @NTDhub

An exciting opportunity for a postdoctoral Research Fellow with a background in mathematical modelling / epidemiology has become available in the Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences at the University of Surrey. This fixed-term post is available from February 2020 and will last for 20 months.

The post holder will be working with Dr Joaquin Prada, Prof. Stephen Gourley and colleagues on a new project funded by the MRC Newton Fund entitled: “ZooTRIP: Zoonotic Transmission of Intestinal Parasites”. Working in collaboration with the University of the Philippines Los Baños (UPLB) and University of Philippines Manila, this multidisciplinary project aims to assess the contribution of zoonotic transmission to the burden of human intestinal worm infection in the Philippines and determine the most appropriate strategies for intestinal worm control. As intestinal worm infections are highly prevalent in humans worldwide, this project has the potential to deliver significant public health impact.

The post holder will be responsible for creating the mathematical framework and statistical analysis of all the data collected in the project. In addition, they will be expected to participate in training and capacity building activities, present their work at conferences and write publications based on their research findings.
