Postdoc in modeling and statistical analysis (Flagstaff, AZ)

The Mihaljevic Lab at Northern Arizona University (NAU) is seeking applications for a Postdoctoral Scholar to support a recently funded research project within the Southwest Health Equity Research Collaborative (SHERC, National Institutes of Health U54). This five-year project will lead to an improved integration of the local effects of social determinants of health and human mobility into mathematical models of infectious disease, with the goal of providing more spatially refined, equity-minded predictions of disease transmission.

Key activities include: (a) working with the Principal Investigators to develop theoretical and computational frameworks that link host mobility, host-pathogen interactions, local host demographics, and heterogeneity among host populations (e.g., methods including clustering techniques and spatiotemporal regression analysis); (b) envisioning, coding, and validating statistical algorithms to estimate the parameters of spatial epidemiological models; (c) coordination with diverse collaborators and stakeholders in academia and public health; and (d) potential co-supervision of one or more research assistants that will help with implementation work.

The chosen candidate will work in collaboration with Dr. Mihaljevic and Dr. Eck Doerry in the School of Informatics, Computing, and Cyber Systems, and Dr. Ye Chen in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics. There will also be opportunities to develop collaborations with researchers in the Center for Health Equity Research at NAU.

Please contact any or all of the following for questions: Dr. Joseph Mihaljevic (, Dr. Ye Chen (, Dr. Eck Doerry (
