About the role
We are looking to appoint a Software Developer (R) in disease mapping to develop a shiny application to enable the use of disaggregation regression. You will be working with a small group with the specific aim of making this new statistical method more accessible. The app will therefore be able to read in spatially explicit, aggregated data, download climatic data from online APIs, fit disaggregation regression models and summarise the outputs in useful ways.
You will contribute to writing project reports, software user documentation and training materials for a workshop. The work will be conducted with guidance from Nigeria CDC in order to ensure that we are building a tool that is useful for the analysts both at Nigeria CDC and at other governmental ministries and NGOs in countries with high burdens of zoonotic or vector-borne diseases.
This post could be suitable for either a software developer (no PhD but strong software skills) or an epidemiologist/statistician with a strong interest in software (a PhD in a relevant area but weaker software skills).
Informal enquiries are welcome and should be made to Dr Tim Lucas at firstname.lastname@example.org.
