Post-doctoral position: Senior Research Associate in Mathematical Modelling of Infectious Diseases

This post offers an excellent opportunity for a Senior Research Associate to join a multi-disciplinary research team of mathematical modellers, epidemiologists and health economists based in Population Health Sciences at Bristol Medical School. The post-holder will contribute expertise in mathematical modelling on the transmission dynamics and impact of interventions on HCV, HIV/AIDS and other infections. The post is funded until until 30/09/2025 in the first instance and will provide a valuable opportunity for obtaining research training and experience.

The post will involve undertaking mathematical modelling, epidemiological analyses and possibly economic evaluations focussed on evaluating the impact of different interventions addressing the epidemics of Hepatitis in Pakistan, Ethiopia and other lower or middle income countries. You will be involved in the technical aspect of modelling, developing national models of HCV and possibly HBV transmission, and undertaking data analyses to parameterise the model. You may also be involved in economic evaluations. You will collaborate with other members of the team involved in these projects. There may also be the opportunity to collaborate on projects which focus on other infections and population groups.

We are looking for applicants with experience in mathematical modelling, preferably of infectious diseases. You must have experience of developing and coding up dynamical models (using Matlab, R or similar), the ability to design and undertake modelling experiments involving data and uncertainty. Skills in undertaking epidemiological data analyses are desirable (using STATA, R or similar packages). You will have strong IT and communication skills and work effectively within a team environment that includes non-mathematicians. It is desirable that you will have an interest in the health issues of individuals in lower and middle income countries.
