Post-doctoral fellow in Neglected Tropical Disease modeling
Global Epidemiology and Biostatistics Group, University of Notre Dame, USA
Position available immediately

An exciting opportunity has arisen to join the Global Epidemiology and Biostatistics Group led by Prof. Edwin Michael at the University of Notre Dame in the Department of Biological Sciences and the Eck Institute for Global Health, to model the global elimination of the vector-borne disease, lymphatic filariasis (LF), in partnership with The Task Force for Global Health, Inc, (TFGH), Georgia, USA. The successful candidate for the modeling position must be proficient in mathematical model construction and analysis and interested in the application of these methods to modeling the elimination of the complex mosquito-borne macroparasitic disease, LF, against which a global elimination program using mass drug administration (MDA) is in progress. The candidate will join us in executing a new project funded by TFGH in order to apply and extend our current modeling work using a multi-vector LF model in conjunction with sentinel site data from endemic regions in order to predict the prospects of LF elimination given observed MDA and vector coverage, and post MDA infection data

Contact Dr. Edwin Michael at eigh@nd.edu for more information.

Furthermore, the post will actively contribute to an EU FP7 Joint action (Quality Action in HIV prevention) and will contribute to the delivery of policy toolkits to support the wider adoption of quality improvement tools in Europe. This post will require strong research skills, ability to lead on the development of study protocols, establish data collection systems, manage datasets and large databases, undertake complex and diverse analyses (especially statistical and policy analyses), and interpret and advise on specialist aspects of the analyses. Excellent written and oral communication skills are required and ability to quickly synthesise current knowledge and prepare scientific reports and articles of the results and to undertake further research. Good project management and partnership skills are also necessary. The postholder will be expected to develop new and innovative analyses of existing surveillance datasets (e.g. GUMCAD, HARS), establish and undertake appropriate surveys and contribute to the consolidation of HPA clinical networks.
