Research Fellow (80964-107)

University of Warwick - Department of Mathematics

Fixed term contract to end in June 2018.

We are seeking a highly skilled and quantitative researcher to join our collaborative project providing predictive modelling of a vaccine against schistosomiasis infection. An ideal candidate would have a strong background in mathematical modelling of infectious diseases, experience with matching models to data and an interest in either neglected tropical disease or health economics.

The successful candidate would join the Zeeman Institute, to be primarily supervised by Prof. Keeling (Maths & Life Sciences), but to strongly interact with Profs Hollingsworth (Oxford) and Prof Anderson (Imperial).

The University of Warwick has considerable experience and expertise in this area, as it hosts the NTD modelling consortium, and has worked on a number of neglected tropical infections. The team brings cutting-edge research techniques in mathematical modelling and health economics to provide an understanding of the implications of a vaccine against this infection.

Applications should include a CV and list of publications, research statement and links to a small selection of reprints/preprints or part of your PhD thesis as appropriate. All applicants should also ensure that their three referees send their references by email to Ann Hume, Departmental Secretary, Mathematics Institute, University of Warwick at MathematicsPA@warwick.ac.uk by the closing date.
