Postdoc positions on multiple disease modeling projects available

Drs. Alex Perkins and Sean Moore at the University of Notre Dame invite applications for multiple positions at the level of Postdoctoral Researcher. Positions are available to contribute to any of several active projects, which are listed below. These projects involve a variety of modeling approaches, which are developed to suit each project's unique objectives.

  1. NIGMS MIRA R35 titled "Model-based inference and forecasting of co-circulating pathogen dynamics" -

  2. NSF IHBEM titled "Three-way coupling of water, behavior, and disease in the dynamics of mosquito-borne disease systems" -

  3. Yellow fever burden estimation and vaccination impact projection through the Vaccine Impact Modelling Consortium -

  4. Chikungunya vaccine trial planning with Bavarian Nordic

  5. NIAID R21 titled "Assessing the impact of COVID-19 interventions on human mobility and SARS-CoV-2 transmission dynamics in the United States" -

  6. Spatio-temporal modeling of pathogen occurrence and disease risk as part of the DoD-supported Remote Emerging Disease Intelligence Network (REDI-NET) -

Successful applicants for postdoctoral positions should have a PhD in a quantitative field and an interest in infectious disease epidemiology, with prior experience in this area preferred but not required. 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. Contracts will be offered on an annual basis but with the expectation of multiple years of support conditional on satisfactory progress. Salary for postdoctoral positions will be competitive and determined based on the qualifications of the applicant, and standard benefits at the University of Notre Dame will be provided. Start date 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 and smoore15ndedu: a cover letter describing the applicant's research interests and background; a curriculum vitae; and contact information for 3 references.
