Graduate student positions are available as part of a project exploring drivers of animal-human spillover of Ebolavirus and other African filoviruses.

We have opportunities for students interested in applying data science and statistical modeling techniques to understand large-scale patterns of disease emergence or disease macroecology. We also have opportunities for students interested in applying mathematical models (e.g., compartmental SIR models) to understand the mechanisms whereby animal viruses spill over into people. Some experience with the R programming language is helpful, and basic knowledge of statistics is essential. Students will be enrolled at UGA in the school or department that their major advisor belongs to and associated with the Center for the Ecology of Infectious Diseases. Full research assistantships are available, as well as individual semesters of support for some projects related to scientific outreach. We will recruit up to three students for the Fall of 2021.
