Postdoc position working on integrating behavior science into epidemic modeling and forecasting

The Department of Environmental Health Sciences is seeking a Postdoctoral Research Scientist interested in infectious disease modeling, data analytics and computational methods in public health research. The Postdoctoral Research Scientist will work on a project focusing on human behavior and modeling of respiratory diseases such as COVID-19 and influenza, with applications to disease surveillance, forecasting and control. The ideal candidate will have a PhD in a quantitative field including but not limited to applied math, statistics, epidemiology, data science and computer science. Strong programming skills (R, MATLAB, or Python) and good oral and written communication skills are required. Previous experience with mathematical modeling of infectious diseases and/or data science is highly preferred. The ability to perform research independently is a plus. The Postdoctoral Research Scientist will work in the research group of Dr. Sen Pei based within Columbia University Mailman School of Public Health in New York City and join an interdisciplinary research team with expertise in behavior science, infectious disease modeling, Bayesian inference, network science and data science. Competitive salary including full benefits will be provided commensurate with experience and qualifications.
