We are seeking to appoint a number of Postdoctoral Researchers in Mathematical Modelling of infectious diseases, based at the Big Data Institute.

You will be leading research on the transmission dynamics of neglected tropical diseases, a group of infections which globally affect the lowest income populations.
Reporting to the Principal Investigator, Professor Deirdre Hollingsworth, you will be a member of a research group with responsibility for carrying out research for a discrete area of a large project. You will be expected to manage own academic research and administrative activities as well as be able to prepare working theories and analyse qualitative and/or quantitative data from a variety of sources, reviewing and refining theories as appropriate.

You will hold (or be close to completion) of a relevant PhD/Dphil in infectious disease modelling, mathematical or statistical modelling or a related field, together with relevant experience. You should also possess sufficient specialist knowledge in the discipline to work within established research programmes. Experience of modelling neglected tropical diseases would be desirable.

Whilst the role is a Grade 7 position, we would be willing to consider candidates with potential but less experience who are seeking a development opportunity, for which an initial appointment would be at Grade 6 (£29,176 - £34,804 p.a.) with the responsibilities adjusted accordingly. This would be discussed with applicants at interview/appointment where appropriate.
Applications for this vacancy are to be made online and you will be required to upload a supporting statement and CV as part of your online application. Your supporting statement must explain how you meet each of the selection criteria for the post using examples of your skills and experience.
