Modelling impact of COVID-19 interventions on groups at risk of severe disease

Applications are invited for a mathematical modeller to join the Centre for Mathematical Modelling of Infectious Diseases and Electronic Health Records Research Group at the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine (LSHTM). The post holder will work on a project studying the impact of shielding on COVID-19 outcomes in England.

The post involves analysing COVID-19 outcomes drawn from electronic health records in the OpenSAFELY research platform, designing a transmission model, and fitting to data. There is scope for self-motivated research within the remit of the larger study.

The post holder will join a highly successful and supportive team at the forefront of COVID-19 analysis. They will work in collaboration with medics, epidemiologists, modellers, and data science specialists.

Applicants should have a postgraduate degree (ideally PhD) in mathematical modelling or very closely related with a substantial component of infectious diseases. Applicants should have experience in mathematical modelling and familiarity with fitting approaches. Further particulars are included in the job description.

Please contact Rosalind Eggo with any questions (

The post is full time and fixed-term until 30 November 2023. The post is funded by the Medical Research Foundation and is available from 1 August 2022 but can be flexible.
