Research manager, UNAIDS Reference Group (www.epidem.org). Coordinate and lead research on HIV epi & modelling to improving global HIV estimates.

The UNAIDS Reference Group on Estimates, Modelling, and Projections (www.epidem.org) is an open group of international experts on HIV epidemiology, surveillance, and modelling who provide scientific guidance to UNAIDS and partner organizations on the methods and data used for global HIV epidemic estimates and projections. The Reference Group is coordinated by a Secretariat based at Imperial College London and the University of Cape Town.

The purpose of this post is to manage the research of the UNAIDS Reference Group secretariat. As a member of the Secretariat, along with co-chairs Dr Jeff Eaton (Imperial) and Dr Leigh Johnson (UCT), the post holder’s main responsibility will be to coordinate and synthesise research activities of Reference Group partners and collaborators, and conduct relevant research on HIV epidemiology, statistics, and modelling that contribute towards the objectives of improving global HIV estimates and projections.

As the post involves organisation of international workshop meetings, engagement with HIV stakeholders, and collaborative research projects, as well as dissemination of Reference Group research findings, this post will involve a high degree of external visibility and require international travel.

Interested candidates are encouraged to contact Jeff Eaton (jeffrey.eaton@imperial.ac.uk) or Leigh Johnson (leigh.johnson@uct.ac.za) for further information.
