Mathematical Modeller

Centre for Tropical Medicine and Global Health, (MORU), The Peter Medawar Building, South Parks Road, Oxford

Applications to be received by 12pm on Friday 6th of December 2019

Grade 7: £32,817 - £36,914 p.a.

The Wellcome Trust - Mahidol University - Oxford Tropical Medicine Research Programme (MORU) is looking for an experienced and motivated Mathematical Modeller to support further development of individual (agent) based models for the design of bespoke malaria elimination strategies for countries in the Greater Mekong Sub region.

The postholder will be based in The Peter Medawar Building at the University of Oxford, with periodic visits to the MORU Bangkok office.

You will be a senior Mathematical Modeller working in an international team and will collaborate with other modellers and a senior health economist. Your work will serve to inform National Malaria Control Programmes of how to optimally allocate their resources to reach elimination.

This project aims to conduct research to improve the health and reduce the infectious diseases burden of rural communities in Asia and elsewhere in the developing world. The AToME (Analytical Tools for Malaria Elimination) group is embedded in the Mathematical and Economic Modelling (MAEMOD) department at the Mahidol-Oxford Research Unit (MORU) and is currently entirely dedicated to the ENDGAME project, funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.

To be successful at shortlisted, please apply online with a supporting statement demonstrating how you meet the selection criteria.

Only applications received before 12.00 midday on 6 December 2019 will be considered.
