We study transmission dynamics using a combination of theoretical and empirical approaches to improve global health.
Postdoctoral Position: African HIV Evolutionary and Epidemic Dynamics
Our group at Johns Hopkins is looking for a postdoctoral fellow to work on projects related to HIV phylodynamics aimed at understanding geography of HIV transmission networks and the role of mobility and migration on HIV incidence and epidemic dynamics in Sub-Saharan Africa. The ideal applicant will have expertise in phylogenetics or computational biology, quantitative experience in epidemiology, statistics, and/or ecology and an interest in public health research related to disease prevention and control in global settings. The successful applicant will be working with Dr. Kate Grabowski in the Department of Pathology at Johns Hopkins Hospital. They will also work closely with the Hopkins Infectious Disease Dynamics Group (iddynamics.jhsph.edu), as well as project collaborators at Oxford, University of Edinburgh, Imperial College, and University College London. Applicants with, or nearing completion of, a doctoral degree in evolutionary biology, computational biology, epidemiology, biostatistics, or a related field will be considered.
Interested candidates should contact Dr. Kate Grabowski (mgrabow2 [at] jhu.edu) with a CV, statement of interest, and references. Application will be considered on a rolling basis and should be submitted by June 1, 2018.
