This position provides research support for mathematical and computational modeling of infectious disease epidemiology in support of public health decision making at the local, state, and/or national level. This position will be based within the University of Utah Health Sciences Center. We are looking for an enthusiastic, highly motivated candidate to join our diverse team of infectious disease modeling experts. The postdoctoral fellow will work on one or more funded projects aimed at modeling transmission dynamics and/or interventions to reduce the incidence of antibiotic resistant bacteria and/or COVID-19 in a regional network of acute care hospitals and long-term care facilities. The research project(s) will address timely questions on how to control the spread of infectious diseases in these facilities. Within this scope, the postdoctoral fellow will have the opportunity to focus on theoretical and applied modeling topics of interest, including network epidemiology, surveillance and prevention strategies, strain competition, vaccine immunology, modes of transmission, and optimal intervention strategy.
The ideal candidate will have strong quantitative and/or computational skills, as well as excellent communication skills as demonstrated by past productivity including publications and/or other scientific and technical output. The candidate should have prior research experience developing compartmental or agent-based models and ideally experience with Bayesian inference methods. Candidates with strong programming skills are preferred. Candidates must be able to effectively work within an interdisciplinary collaborative environment and have the skills to manage deadlines and execute research projects with minimal supervision. This position requires a minimum of a PhD degree.
