Understanding the spatial dynamics of infectious diseases is critical to
target non-pharmaceutical interventions and vaccines appropriately. The
spatial scales of these interventions are governed by biological and
behavioural factors and change depending on the underlying structure of the
population. However, we lack basic understanding of the dynamic nature of
these scales for emerging infectious diseases and how they may impact our
decisions to optimally design interventions to reduce mortality and morbidity
from infectious diseases.
The postholder will be responsible for developing novel statistical and
mathematical methods to better understand the role of human mobility and
population structure in shaping the dynamics of human infectious diseases.
There will be rich and exciting datasets at high spatial resolution from
across the world to draw from. These include large scale human mobility
datasets (as described here:
https: // www. nature.com/articles/s41562-020-0875-0) and large-scale virus
genomic datasets from the UK and elsewhere. The PDRA is expected to translate
scientific findings into actionable public health insights, also in support of
the COVID-19 pandemic.
The PDRA will be embedded in a large collaborative project and there will be
plenty of opportunities to collaborate with researchers and policy makers from
across the world.
Applications should include a one-page statement of interest and experience as
well as a CV.
The post is fixed-term for 24 months, with a possibility for extension.
Committed to equality and valuing diversity.
