    We are seeking for a highly skilled Post-Doc in the field of computational systems biology at the Robert Koch Institute (www.rki.de) in Berlin/Germany.
    HIV-1 pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) is a novel anti-retroviral based strategy to curb HIV infection. The goal of the BMBF-funded project is to establish and refine integrative modelling and simulation tools to estimate the clinical-, as well as epidemiological efficacy of HIV-1 pre-exposure prophylaxis based on in vitro/cellular and explant pharmacological and virological data, together with our collaboration partners in the US, UK, Europe and nationally at the RKI. The specific focus of the post-doc project is to elucidate the mechanisms of action of PrEP in different risk groups (e.g. male vs. female) using stochastic- and hybrid modelling & simulation techniques. The project lies at the interface of systems biology, pharmacology, infectious disease modelling and epidemiology, offers opportunities for academic and intellectual advancement and excellent carrier possibilities.

    The position is for up to 5 years under salary scale TV-ÖD E13.

    The webinar "Infectious Disease Outbreaks" will be hosted by the University of Bordeaux.  The goal of this series of talks is to present multiple aspects of mathematical modelling to address important problems relevant to infectious disease outbreaks. Such problems can be addressed from many different angles from data, to mathematical models, to simulations and their combinations. COVID-19 pandemic will indeed be one of major topics in this series of lectures. We organize this series of lectures, between France (Europe) and Canada (North America), to bring together mathematicians from both continents. 

    The first talk will take place on Thursday October 15 2020: 

    9:00-9:45 AM (Eastern time) or 17:00-17:45 (in France) 

    Jacques Demongeot (University Grenoble Alpes), Modelling Covid-19 outspread dynamics involving geoclimatic and demographic factors


    9:45-10:00 AM  (Eastern time) or 17:45-18:30 (in France) 

    Glenn Webb, Vanderbilt University, USA, Predicting the Development of COVID-19 Epidemics from Reported Case Data 

    We plan to have one meeting every two weeks, which will consist in two 45-minutes talks given by one speaker from Europe and one speaker from North America. All the information concerning the talks will be given on the webpage https://www.math.u-bordeaux.fr/~pmagal100p/webinar2020.html  except for the zoom meeting information, which will be communicated by e-mail. 

    We would be very pleased to welcome you in the online seminar. If you are willing to attend and wish to keep receiving information about this event, please contact Quentin Griette quentin.griette@u-bordeaux.fr  so that we add you to the mailing list.

    PhD position: Funded PhD position on Context-specific factors that drive HIV transmission among men who have sex with men: Modelling the role of behaviours, social and legal factors.

    Closing date: 5pm on Monday, 23rd November 2020. 

    This Infectious Disease modelling PhD Studentship is via the GW4 BioMed MRC Doctoral Training Programme.

    Men who have sex with men (MSM) are at high risk of HIV infection. Behavioural, legal and social factors all contribute to this heightened risk. Epidemiological analysis and modelling will be used to explore the role of context-specific factors (e.g. chemsex in UK, stigma and criminalisation in Africa) in elevating HIV transmission among MSM. We propose to:
    1. Utilise data from systematic reviews of how chemsex is associated with HIV transmission and related risk behaviours, to undertake modelling of the potential contribution of chemsex to HIV transmission in a range of HIV epidemics.
    2. For contrasting global settings, utilise available epidemiological data to develop and parameterise HIV transmission models to investigate the role of context-specific factors (including chemsex, stigma, history of arrest) in driving HIV transmission among MSM, incorporating their effects on risk behaviours and uptake of prevention and treatment services.
    3. Through modelling, assess the impact of different HIV prevention and treatment interventions or structural interventions that may reduce the harms modelled in 2.

    Postdoc position: Senior Research Associate in Mathematical Epidemiology of Infectious Diseases. University of Bristol.

    Closing date: 15th November 2020

    An excellent opportunity has arisen for a Senior Research Associate to join a research team based within Population Health Sciences, Bristol Medical School at the University of Bristol.

    You will join a collaborative team of mathematical modellers, epidemiologists, and health economists interested in the transmission dynamics of blood borne viruses, sexually transmitted infections (STIs), and other infections. Within this group, led by Professor Peter Vickerman, the post will undertake mathematical modelling and epidemiological analyses focussed on prevention and treatment needs for tackling the global epidemic of HIV, HBV and HCV, with a specific focus on high-risk groups such as people who inject drugs in lower, middle and high income settings. Specific settings of interest include Myanmar, Pakistan, Eastern Europe, sub-Saharan Africa and the USA.  As part of these projects you will be involved in the technical aspect of modelling, epidemiological analyses and possibly economic evaluations, and will collaborate with other modellers, health economists and epidemiologists in this team.


    For further information please contact Peter Vickerman (peter.vickerman@bristol.ac.uk) or Hannah Fraser (hannah.fraser@bristol.ac.uk)
