We are looking for a postdoc to do within- and between-host modeling of transmission dynamics of sylvatic dengue and Zika.

Dr. Benjamin Althouse (Institute for Disease Modeling, University of Washington,
and New Mexico State University, https://www.idmod.org/user/117) and Dr. Kathryn Hanley (New Mexico State University, hanleyviruslab.com) seek to hire a post-doctoral fellow to participate in an RO1-funded project on evolutionary trade-offs between arbovirus transmission and clearance in native and novel hosts. Specifically, we are looking for an individual with interests in developing and implementing mathematical models of within-host replication dynamics, between-host transmission, and hybrid within-between host models based on extensive data from experimental infections of non-human primates with dengue and Zika virus. Our project welcomes trainees of all races, ethnicities, cultural identities, sexual orientations, and gender identities. Motivated, thoughtful, curious people with a deep-seated interest in infectious disease emergence are encouraged to apply. Experience with mathematical modeling of transmission systems (ODEs, networks, or individual- or agent-based models) and proficiency in R, Python, or C/C++ are required and experience with within-host modeling and strong R and Python skills are desirable.

NMSU is an equal opportunity and affirmative action employer.

Applicants are welcome to contact Dr. Althouse (balthouse@idmod.org) or Dr. Hanley
(khanley@nmsu.edu) for additional information about this position.

Applicants can apply at jobs.nmsu.edu posting number 710357.

Review of applications will commence on June 30, 2021 and continue until the position is filled.
