Mathematical modelling of experimental data on parasite dynamics during malaria infection and treatment in both human and animal infection

This position will focus on the mathematical modelling of experimental data on parasite dynamics during malaria infection and treatment in both human and animal infection. This will involve developing familiarity with the parasitology literature and the underlying biology, biostatistical analysis, and ODE and stochastic modelling.

The Kirby Institute is a leading global research institute dedicated to the prevention and treatment of infectious diseases. Established in 1986 in response to the then emerging HIV epidemic, the Kirby Institute now contributes to knowledge on a broad range of diseases, including viral hepatitis and sexually transmissible infections.

In the Infection Analytics Program, we use mathematical and computational approaches to better understand immunity to major infectious disease threats such as HIV and malaria. Our team is made up of mainly mathematicians and physicists who all have a keen interest in understanding how we control infections within the body.
