Research assistant in mathematical modelling, epidemiology , statistics, with experience of public health and infectious diseases.

Duties and responsibilities
The range of projects that the research assistant may be involved in will be in the field of prevention of sexually transmitted infections, such as HSV-2 HPV, and HIV in different risk populations (e.g. FSW, MSM, PWID) and settings, with a focus on resource poor settings, to inform public health decision-making. There might be opportunities to work on Covid-19.

Depending on qualifications and expertise, you may be responsible for all stages of mathematical modelling project from the development and coding of the mathematical model, model calibration, and the modelling analysis, and/or work, as part of a wider team, on specific tasks on collaborative projects, which may include model calibration, secondary statistical data analysis and /or comprehensive systematic reviews and meta-analysis. Evidence of previous hands-on research experience and ability to lead several projects in parallel will be an asset. You will be expected to present at international conferences, publish in peer reviewed journals and be able to travel to international meetings.

This is a very rewarding position among a dynamic team of international multi-disciplinary collaborators. The results of this study will inform STI and HIV control programs and international agencies.
