The One Health Trust (OHT) seeks an energetic individual to lead and contribute to research projects in the field of infectious disease modeling.
About This Job
The Post-doctoral Researcher will work closely with the US team of disease modelers, epidemiologists, and economists on a CDC-funded project modeling transmission of multidrug-resistant organisms in healthcare settings (MInD-Healthcare). Research-related tasks will include model development, data cleaning and analysis, literature reviews, and manuscript preparation along with some grant writing and administrative support. The supervisor may assign other tasks as needed.
We seek applicants with backgrounds in global/public health, epidemiology, economics, biostatistics, molecular biology, computer science, natural sciences, engineering, or other relevant fields to work as part of our research teams. Candidates must hold a PhD in a relevant discipline. We especially seek individuals with knowledge of epidemiological modeling (including agent-based modeling, compartmental modeling (SIR), network modeling, etc.) and statistical modeling (regression analysis, time-series analysis, Bayesian parameter estimation, etc.) with good analytical reasoning and technical writing skills.
Considerations: Proficiency with programming using Python/R is necessary and programming experience in other languages including C/C++, SQL, or Julia is a plus. Applicants must be well organized, attentive to detail, and able to work independently.
Salary range: $65,000- $80,000 per year, depending on experience.
The position is open for remote/telework to applicants with an existing right to work in the United States.
