Postdoc position using mathematical transmission models to inform local HIV public-health policies and/or evaluate their cost-effectiveness.

Johns Hopkins School of Medicine: Post-Doctoral Fellowship Using Dynamic Transmission Models to Inform Strategies to End the US HIV Epidemic

We are seeking a post-doctoral fellow to join the team behind the Johns Hopkins Epidemiological and Economic Model (JHEEM) – a cutting-edge dynamic transmission model of local HIV epidemics in the United States. This position will be focused on answering questions that inform local HIV public health policies and/or evaluate the cost-effectiveness of HIV public-health interventions. Potential projects include, but are not limited to:

  1. What combinations of HIV testing, pre-exposure prophylaxis, and engagement in HIV among people with HIV can most reduce racial disparities in local HIV epidemics?
  2. How much do HIV control efforts in cities affect HIV transmission in nearby rural communities?
  3. What impact might intervening on social determinants of health – improving insurance coverage and access to health care, decreasing housing instability – have on local HIV control efforts?
  4. Conducting cost-effectiveness analyses of interventions that target HIV testing, PrEP, or the HIV continuum of care.
    (Examples of previous work are available at


  1. A recent PhD (or MD) degree in a relevant discipline (expected graduation in the next six months is acceptable)
  2. Expertise in epidemiology or cost-effectiveness analyses
  3. Basic experience in programming
