Postbac and/or Research Staff Positions in Mathematical Modeling of Infectious Diseases at Notre Dame

The Perkins Lab at the University of Notre Dame invites applications for multiple positions. Depending on the qualifications and fit of the applicant, these positions could take a variety of forms ranging from Postdoctoral Researcher to Research Programmer to Post-Baccalaureate Researcher.

One project for which we are recruiting is to advance our efforts in modeling the impact of vaccination against yellow fever as part of the Vaccine Impact Modelling Consortium (https://www.vaccineimpact.org/) over the next three years. A paper describing some of our prior work on this topic can be found at https://www.science.org/doi/10.1126/sciadv.abg5033.

Another project for which we are recruiting is to investigate the dynamics of co-circulating pathogens, with an emphasis on mosquito-transmitted viruses and respiratory pathogens. This work is supported by a MIRA Award from NIGMS and will also continue over the next three years. A more detailed summary of this project can be found at https://reporter.nih.gov/search/OMVqjoYJ-kua6iEkEhKg3A/project-details/10493366.

Across these projects, there are a wide range of modeling and other techniques that could be relevant, so applicants with varied backgrounds are welcome to apply. Experience working with spatial data and/or time-series forecasting would be especially valued.

Successful applicants should have a bachelor's degree at a minimum and must have substantial prior research experience and coding experience in R.

Salary will be competitive and determined based on the qualifications of the applicant. Standard benefits commensurate with the level of appointment at the University of Notre Dame will be provided. In addition, successful applicants will be welcomed into a large, interactive, and supportive lab environment that values diversity and continually seeks to be more inclusive. A lab handbook is currently under development and can be discussed with interested applicants. Start date for these positions is flexible, and applications will be considered on a rolling basis. Remote working arrangements can be explored.

Individuals with an interest in one of these opportunities should submit the following to taperkinsndedu: a cover letter describing the applicant's research interests and background; a curriculum vitae; and contact information for three references.
