The Marshall Lab at the UC Berkeley School of Public Health is seeking to hire a postdoctoral scholar to work on mathematical and computational aspects of gene drive systems in mosquito vectors of malaria, dengue and other mosquito-borne diseases. The position is initially for one year, with the possibility of extension, and is available early to mid-2021. Salary is commensurate with experience, and full benefits are included.
Calibrating ecological and epidemiological models to available mosquito and vector-borne disease data
Developing target product profiles for mosquito genetic control systems
Informing monitoring and surveillance protocols to assess intervention efficacy and unintended spread
Mentoring PhD, Masters and undergraduate students
An ideal candidate will have:
A strong background in applied mathematics, statistics and/or computer science
Experience with population genetics, genomics or ecological and epidemiological modeling
An interest in mosquitoes and/or mosquito-borne diseases
An interest in mentoring students and promoting diversity, equity and inclusion in research
If you are interested in the position, please send: i) your CV, including a list of publications and the names and email addresses of three potential referees, ii) PDFs of your two most significant publications or manuscripts to date, and iii) a cover letter describing your research interests and motivations for joining our lab to John Marshall at firstname.lastname@example.org. Inquiries are also welcome. Additional information about the research in our lab can be found at https://www.marshalllab.com/. The position will remain open until filled. The first review date will be January 8th 2021.
