Postdocs/Research scientists to model individuals' immune dynamics and improve methods to estimate vaccine effectiveness

The Cobey Lab is a computational lab that studies the interplay of immunity and the population dynamics of respiratory viruses such as influenza and SARS-CoV-2. We explore how immune responses arise after infection and vaccination and shape viral epidemiology and evolution. Our aim is to use this information to improve vaccination strategies. We are looking for quantitative computational research scientists to work on multiple projects. Projects include (a) modeling the longitudinal dynamics of individuals' immune responses, (b) examining variability in individuals’ responses, and (c) improving methods to measure vaccine effectiveness. The research involves close collaboration with epidemiologists, immunologists, ecologists, and evolutionary biologists, including through the NIH-funded Collaborative Influenza Vaccine Innovation Consortium (CIVIC) and the Centers for Excellence in Influenza Research and Response (CEIRR). These positions offer substantial opportunities for intellectual creativity, collaboration, and leadership. Remote, U.S.-based work is an option. Salaries are competitive and based on experience. Potential applicants are encouraged to visit the lab’s website and to contact Dr. Cobey with questions.
