RA/RF at LSHTM to model global vaccine impact for Gavi/BMGF.

We are recruiting a Research Assistant or Research Fellow to join our growing team of vaccine modellers and economists. Since 2011, the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine (LSHTM) has supplied model-based estimates of the impact of different vaccines to the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation (BMGF) and Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance. These estimates have been used to set funding priorities, to evaluate performance and to advocate for greater global commitment towards controlling vaccine-preventable diseases in the world’s poorest countries. The range of models used in our group includes both transmission dynamic and static models, and covers a range of antigens including measles, human papillomavirus, pneumococcal, rotavirus and Haemophilus influenza vaccines. The post-holder will help develop a programme of work aligned with the objectives of VIMC. The post holder will advance vaccine modelling methodology and construct models to study the impact of vaccine investments in 96 low and lower-middle income countries.
