Mathematical models of within- and between-host infection dynamics, with applications to AMR, HIV, pneumococcus and co-infections

This is a Wellcome Trust and Royal Society-funded project “Epidemiological and evolutionary consequences of coinfection: a multi-scale modelling approach” in the Department of Mathematics at the University of Manchester.

The project involves modelling multi-strain and multi-pathogen systems with an explicit description of within-host dynamics and between-host transmission. You will focus on formulating and studying models based on difference, differential and integral equations to gain insight into a range of applications (HIV, TB, Pneumococcus, and antimicrobial resistance).

You should have, or be working towards, a PhD or equivalent in applied mathematics or related discipline. Strong mathematical and computational skills are essential, and experience with integral equations or epidemic modelling desirable. Excellent communication, interpersonal and organisational skills are also essential.

This is a full-time fixed-term position, tenable for a period of 20 months in the first instance, not to be completed later than the end of September 2021. Interviews will likely be held on the 25th, 26th or 27th of November (over Skype, if required).
