Research Fellow in Mathematical Modelling at University of Surrey

A new opening postdoctoral position in medical sciences is available at University of Surrey, UK. Applicants should apply as soon as possible.

An exciting opportunity for a postdoctoral Research Fellow with a background in mathematical modelling / epidemiology has become available in the Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences at the University of Surrey.

The post holder will be working with Dr Joaquin Prada and colleagues on a new project funded by the EPSRC Global Challenges Research Fundentitled: "Mathematical tools to inform sustainable interventions against schistosomiasis in Uganda". Working in collaboration with the University of Glasgow and partners in Uganda and the UK, this multidisciplinary project aims to inform policy-makers on popular and affordable, and therefore feasible and sustainable, WASH interventions to complement MDA campaigns as well as informing monitoring and evaluation methods for Schistosomiasis control using novel mathematical tools. As schistosomiasis infections are highly prevalent in many parts of the world, this project has the potential to deliver significant public health impact.

The post holder will be responsible for creating the mathematical frameworkand integrating outputs from the team at the University of Glasgow led by Dr Poppy Lamberton. In addition, they will be required to participate in activities in Uganda. They will be expected to present their work at conferences and to write publications based on their research findings.

The post holder will have the opportunity to engage with other research fellows across the University and other project partners, and to take advantage of training opportunities targeted at early career researchers. In addition, they will be encouraged to participate in activities of the newly-established University of Surrey Neglected Tropical Disease hub.

An ideal candidate would have a PhD in mathematical modelling or related discipline with research experience in epidemiology, a track record of working in a multidisciplinary team, excellent communication skills and the ability to work independently.
