PhD positions Netherlands Center for One Health: Mathematical and statistical modeling of mosquito-borne disease emergence

The Netherlands Center for One Health consortium is recruiting graduate students to work on a range of questions related to the emergence and control of mosquito-borne diseases. Graduate students will be part of a cohort of 26 graduate students from diverse disciplines from eight academic institutions across the Netherlands and will collaborate closely with each other as well as several Dutch institutions involved in disease surveillance and control and wildlife conservation.

Quantitative projects include spatial-temporal risk mapping (project 5, Wageningen University), data-driven modeling for reconstructing zoonotic outbreaks (project 9, Wageningen University), an ecosystem approach to assessing emergence risk (project 10, Utrecht University), assessing generic early warning indicators for mosquito-borne disease outbreaks (project 11, Wageningen University), and predicting tipping points of mosquito populations (project 12, Leiden University).

Have a look at the website ( for a full list of projects and instructions on how to apply. For any questions with regards to these quantitative positions, feel free to reach out to dr. Quirine ten Bosch: quirine.tenbosch[at] For more general questions: nwa.onehealth[at]
