Theoretical disease ecology postdoc, developing mathematical models to explore parasite epidemiology under alternative resource availability scenarios

A full-time post-doc position in theoretical disease ecology is available in the lab of Andy Fenton (Liverpool University), as part of a NERC-funded project involving Amy Pedersen (University of Edinburgh), Daniel Streicker (University of Glasgow) and Meggan Craft (University of Minnesota).

The postdoc will develop mathematical models exploring the epidemiology of various parasite species under alternative resource availability scenarios. This involves pure theory development and data integration. Expertise in mathematical modelling (ODEs, PDEs and numerical simulations) is essential, and experience of integrating models with empirical data is desirable.

Duration 26 months, start date 1st March 2019.
