Modeling epidemics on networks to support HIV prevention planning

This position is in the Network Modeling Group (NMG) – a research lab that develops statistical network methods and simulation studies to support public policy development in the area of infectious disease prevention and treatment, with a focus on HIV and other sexually transmitted infections. The work will involve developing, implementing and evaluating stochastic network models for HIV transmission for two current projects. The first project is the Washington HIV/AIDS Modeling for Prevention project, which is focused on developing a validated model of HIV transmission dynamics as a foundation for cost optimization projections for the Washington State Department of Health. The second is an NIH MIDAS project focused on adding new functionality to our open source epidemic modeling software package EpiModel. Our team has a uniquely challenging mission to provide state-of-the-art, reproducible research to support practical public health policy development.
