We are seeking an outstanding Research Lead for the Vaccine Impact Modelling Consortium.

We are seeking an outstanding Research Lead for the Vaccine Impact Modelling Consortium ( This major collaborative initiative directed by Professor Neil Ferguson, is based within the MRC Centre for Global Infectious Disease Analysis at Imperial College London and funded jointly by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation (BMGF) and Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance ($11 million over 2016-22).

You will drive the consortium’s research agenda; use the consortium’s unique data set to address important questions that will have real-world impact on vaccine delivery, in collaboration with the research groups; and lead the secretariat’s science team of three full-time researchers. The team collaborates closely on the analysis of vaccine impact estimates generated across the consortium and the refinement of the methods used for impact estimation. This research includes (a) improving methods for generating ensemble estimates of disease burden and vaccine impact that fully represent uncertainties in the underlying data sources, assumptions and alternative model structures; (b) refining estimates to allow for sub-national variation in vaccine coverage and disease burden; (c) assessing the effects of socio-economic and geographic clustering of vaccine coverage across different vaccines (i.e. the effect of ‘hard-to-reach’ groups with low coverage of all vaccines); (d) assisting key country partners with the refinement, interpretation and use of consortium outputs.
