This is an exciting opportunity for a highly-motivated postdoctoral research associate to work on the Wellcome Trust and Royal Society-funded project “Epidemiological and evolutionary consequences of coinfection: a multi-scale modelling approach”. The appointment will be made in the School of Mathematics, with numerous interaction opportunities with other departments and national and international collaborators.
The project involves modelling multi-strain and multi-pathogen systems with an explicit description of within-host dynamics and between-host transmission. You will focus on formulating and studying models based on difference, differential and integral equations to gain insight into a range of applications (HIV, TB, Pneumococcus, and antimicrobial resistance).
You should have, or be working towards, a PhD or equivalent in applied mathematics or related discipline. Strong mathematical and computational skills are essential, and experience with integral equations or epidemic modelling desirable. Excellent communication, interpersonal and organisational skills are also essential for such an interdisciplinary project.
This is a full-time fixed-term position, tenable for a period of 20 months in the first instance, starting from October 2019 onwards and not to be completed later than the end of September 2021. Interviews will likely be held on the 25th, 26th or 27th of November (over Skype, if required).
The School of Mathematics and University are committed to the well-being and work-life balance of all staﬀ. In addition to our attractive rewards and benefits we have a suite of family-friendly policies covering ﬂexible working, career breaks and entitlement to enhanced maternity, paternity and adoption leave which are applicable to all employees.

The School is fully committed to Athena SWAN principles including the promotion of gender equality in science and is a supporter of the LMS Good Practice Scheme; for more details of our activities in this area see www.maths.manchester.ac.uk/about-us/women-in-maths/ .
