The Center for the Ecology of Infectious Diseases (CEID) is seeking to hire a scientific statistician within the field of disease ecology.

The Center for the Ecology of Infectious Diseases (CEID) seeks a scientific statistician to aid in the development of tools for decision-response and situation-awareness. This position will include conducting independent research while supporting others in research study design, the presentation of research results, software development and other technical projects. Applicants should be able to work independently on projects involving scientific programming, modeling, and data analysis related to disease forecasting, disease spillover, and disease mapping. The selected candidate will be a team lead for statistical projects, and will work to establish and maintain relationships with external collaborators (i.e. the CDC and academic institutions), as well as other teams of students, postdocs, faculty, and staff engaged in various projects focused on elucidating the nature of disease transmission, spread, and the potential effects of various mitigation strategies. Primarily, this position will work as a project lead directly with the CEID director, faculty, and working groups as they seek to provide decision makers with data-driven, information-rich tools for situation awareness about the rapidly changing conditions within the field of disease ecology. This position will require knowledge of scientific programming in R including package development, statistical analysis and modeling (e.g. regression analysis, time series analysis, and computational statistics), and strong communication skills with proficiency in technical writing and data visualization. Projects include the development of tools for modeling infectious disease transmission, spatial spread, and related efforts. This position will also assist with scientific communication and contribute to external funding proposals. This position will aid in the training of students and other researchers in data acquisition and visualization, and will coach approximately 10 undergraduate researchers involved with statistical acquisition and analysis projects.
