Multiple postdoc positions available in infectious disease dynamics and implications for control via the Infectious Disease Dynamics Group at JHBSPH.
Fellowship #1: Mathematical modeling of within-host dynamics and evolution of HIV including novel treatments
Applications will be considered on a rolling basis and should be submitted as soon as possible.
Fellowship #2: Tracking emerging infectious diseases using serological cohorts: Advancing science and policy
The Department of Epidemiology is seeking a Postdoctoral Fellow to work on projects related to tracking emerging infectious diseases using serologic cohorts. The position is envisioned as a 2-year opportunity. The first year will be focused on launching a new study to understand the frequency and mechanisms of cross-species transmission of henipaviruses in Bangladesh. This project is in collaboration with the broader Bat One Health Research Consortium, a highly interdisciplinary, international network of researchers. The Fellow will help in developing and piloting field sampling and data collection protocols for monitoring spillover of bat-borne viruses into cohorts of domesticated animals and human populations living near bat roosts. The Fellow will spend time in Bangladesh with the field teams sampling bats and domesticated animals and will assist with setting up data reporting procedures and databases for samples and test results. In addition to field work, the applicant will have opportunities to analyze existing datasets related to bat ecology and serology and develop manuscripts from these analyses. In addition, during the first year, the successful applicant will spend a 3-month part-time practicum working at the interface with policy and emerging infections.
