The Infectious Disease Dynamics group is made up of faculty, post-docs, graduate and undergraduate students who are interested in the dynamics of a wide span of infectious diseases, from dengue to influenza to chikungunya, based at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. The group uses a combination of theoretical and empirical approaches to study transmission dynamics.
Who we are
Tenure-Track Assistant or Associate Professor Department of Epidemiology
The Department of Epidemiology at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health invites applications for a tenure-track Assistant or Associate Professor specializing in infectious disease dynamics. We welcome applications from candidates who recently completed their post-doctoral training or who are early in their research career. Application due date: July 31, 2020.
The candidate appointed to this position will have expertise in the statistical analysis of pathogen transmission, mathematical and computational modeling, and/or phylogenetic and phylodynamic methods. Applicants should have a doctorate in epidemiology, ecology, or equivalent training.
The successful candidate will be expected to contribute to teaching courses in infectious disease epidemiology and dynamics. Candidates who combine methodological and modeling work with experience in field epidemiology and data collection are particularly encouraged to apply. While the position does not require a disease-specific focus, candidates with research interests including emerging infections, dengue, influenza, malaria. or HIV are encouraged to apply. The successful candidate would be joining an active and productive group of students, post-doctoral fellows, and faculty with an interest in infectious disease dynamics.
The candidate must be committed to advising graduate students and mentoring post-doctoral fellows. Relevant publications, early career grant funding, and classroom teaching and mentoring experience are desirable. Experience in multidisciplinary collaborations on infectious disease dynamics will be viewed positively.
