Postdoctoral position(s) at UC Berkeley to study AMR and various pediatric vaccinations (Lewnard lab)

There is an opening for a postdoc to study the impact of both existing and in-the-pipeline vaccines on the epidemiology of childhood infections, antimicrobial consumption, and the selection and burden of antimicrobial resistance. Projects will address both domestic and LMIC settings, and involve collaborators around the world as well as access to rich datasets. The position holder will be encouraged to function independently, to help shape the direction of the work, and to assist in supervising student-led research at all levels.

Further support exists within the lab for work on other pediatric vaccines and infections, and on study designs for infectious disease interventions and natural history. UC Berkeley provides a rich intellectual environment and abundant opportunities for collaboration with both quantitative and field-based researchers.

Applicants must have (or be nearing completion of) a doctoral degree, with strong quantitative and computational skills demonstrated by past productivity including publications and/or other scientific and technical output. Applications will be considered on a rolling basis. The initial funding is for two years.

Please send a CV, statement of research interests, and contact information for 3 references to Joseph Lewnard (
