New opportunity to investigate the impact and cost-effectiveness of vaccines against Neisseria species using transmission models

An excellent opportunity has arisen for a Senior Research Associate to join research teams based within Bristol Medical School and Bristol Veterinary School to work on an industrial sponsored project (GlaxoSmithkline).

The post will undertake mathematical modelling and epidemiological analyses focussed on analysing the impact and cost-effectiveness of a vaccine against Neisseria gonorrhoeae, a sexually transmitted bacteria. You will develop technical aspect of modelling, epidemiological and economic analyses and will collaborate with other modellers and epidemiologists in this multidisciplinary team. You will also work closely with our industry partners to ensure that project deliverables are provided in on time and to an excellent standard.

You will need a strong mathematical background with preferably a PhD degree in a relevant quantitative subject. We are looking for an applicant with experience in infectious disease mathematical modelling and economic analysis. You must have experience of developing and programming dynamical models, the ability to design and analyse large scale modelling experiments involving data and uncertainty. You will need excellent communication and project management skills to ensure delivery. Skills in reviewing the non-modelling literature and undertaking data analyses (using STATA or similar packages) would be an advantage. You will be able to work effectively within a team environment that includes non-mathematicians. It is desirable that you have an interest in vaccination and public health.

The post is available for 12 months full time (part time will be considered).
