Postdoctoral Researcher - Statistical/Mathematical Modelling of Infectious Diseases
Applications to be received by 12pm on Friday 21st of December 2018
Grade 7: £32,236 - £39,609 p.a.
We are looking for a Postdoctoral Researcher in statistical/mathematical modelling of infectious diseases to join our team. You will work on developing and evaluating novel trial designs for evaluating vaccines in infectious disease emergencies. As a postdoctoral researcher in statistical/mathematical modelling, your role will involve analysis of study designs that can, in response to accumulating data, adapt decisions about how to allocate vaccines to trial participants in order to determine which vaccines and deployment strategies are most effective faster.
You will hold a relevant PhD/DPhil in statistics, epidemiology or a closely related area, or have equivalent relevant experience. You should also have experience with the statistical programming language R and be able to demonstrate the ability to produce high-quality academic writing. Experience with Bayesian methods, though not essential, would be a distinct advantage.
This position is available on a full-time basis, fixed-term for 18 months in the first instance but with the possibility of being extended.
Only applications received before 12.00 midday on Friday 21st December 2018 will be considered.
