PhD position available

COPE has a new PhD position availableMathematical Modeling of Cholera Epidemics, expected to begin mid-August for a three year period.

The PhD project will be carried out in a research environment with focus on statistical and dynamic disease models to understand transmissibility and temporal patterns as well as to inform outbreak preparedness. The overall aim of the project is to generate and simulate disease transmission models that include environmental, quarantine, and immunity parameters.Data to support model validation will be available from ongoing studies as well as from literature sources of outbreaks in other settings. Furthermore, the data supporting the model will be drawing on other scientific approaches to cholera epidemics and to disasters, such as legal, sociological, anthropological, political, and cultural.

Applications must be submitted by April 11 at the latest.
