Mathematical modelling of malaria transmission dynamics

The Wellcome Trust - Mahidol University - Oxford Tropical Medicine Research Programme (MORU) is looking for an experienced and motivated Mathematical Modeller to support further development of individual (agent) based models for the design of bespoke malaria elimination strategies for countries in the Greater Mekong Sub region.

The postholder will be based in The Peter Medawar Building at the University of Oxford, with periodic visits to the MORU Bangkok office.

You will be a senior Mathematical Modeller working in an international team and will collaborate with other modellers and a senior health economist. Your work will serve to inform National Malaria Control Programmes of how to optimally allocate their resources to reach elimination.

This project aims to conduct research to improve the health and reduce the infectious diseases burden of rural communities in Asia and elsewhere in the developing world. The AToME (Analytical Tools for Malaria Elimination) group is embedded in the Mathematical and Economic Modelling (MAEMOD) department at the Mahidol-Oxford Research Unit (MORU) and is currently entirely dedicated to the ENDGAME project, funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.
