We're hiring 1 post-doc in Geospatial modelling

The Malaria Atlas Project (MAP) is seeking to appoint up to two Postdoctoral Research Scientists with a strong background in any field of geospatial modelling who will contribute to our mission of mapping Plasmodium falciparum and Plasmodium vivax malarias in low endemicity, pre-elimination settings.

You will work collaboratively with other scientists within the wider MAP group to develop probabilistic maps of malaria risk at national and sub-national level to evaluate the efficacy of past intervention strategies and to assist with the planning of future interventions. An understanding of spatiotemporal modelling and expertise in geostatistics, random-field models, or equivalent are essential. An understanding of the epidemiology of a vector-borne disease such as malaria is desirable but not essential.

You will contribute to and, as appropriate, lead in the preparation of scientific reports and journal articles for publication of research findings from this work in open access journals. Travel to collaborators in Europe, the United States, Africa, and Asia will be part of the role.

You will hold or be close to completion of a PhD in mathematics, statistics, biostatistics, or a similar quantitative discipline equivalent experience.
