Postdoctoral Research Scientist
Postdoctoral Scientist Position in Infectious Disease Modeling
The Department of Environmental Health Sciences at Columbia University Mailman School of Public Health seeks up to three postdoctoral scientists for work on infectious disease modeling. Successful candidates will support multiple projects investigating nonlinear error growth in infectious disease systems and developing model-inference frameworks for simulation of infectious agents, inference of critical epidemiological characteristics, counterfactual simulations, and projections and forecasting. The postdoctoral scientists will join a dynamic team of computational biologists, epidemiologists, and mathematicians studying a range of infectious diseases, including influenza, COVID-19, malaria, dengue and anti-microbial resistant organisms.
The expected duration of each postdoctoral position is 2 years.
Candidates applying for these positions must have or be near completion of a doctoral degree in Computational Biology, Mathematics, Statistics, Epidemiology or a related discipline. Persons with a strong background and interest in Bayesian statistics, mathematical modeling and/or infectious disease dynamics are encouraged to apply. Experience programming in languages such as Matlab, R, or Python is required
Interested candidate must apply through our Careers at Columbia portal. Please submit a statement of interest, not exceeding 2 pages, the names and contact information for 3 references, and a CV to application. Applications will be considered as they are received.
