We have an opportunity for a Research Assistant/Associate to contribute to/make a leading contribution to a Wellcome Trust Senior Research Fellowship grant entitled “Mitigating bat viruses: from forecasting spillover to control at the source”, working with Professor Daniel Streicker and an international team of scientists.
The post holder will develop and validate dynamic spatial models of rabies virus transmission and control using a wealth of data from vampire bats and livestock. Models will be used to understand how bat ecology and population dynamics enable the long-term maintenance of a lethal virus in a slow-reproducing host and how self-disseminating betaherpesvirus- or poxvirus- vectored vaccines might interrupt rabies transmission within the bat reservoir. The successful candidate will be expected to contribute to the formulation and submission of research publications and research proposals as well as help manage and direct this complex and challenging project as opportunities allow.
