[Swarm-Modelling] Two PostDoc positions at University of Michigan

From: Rick Riolo
Subject: [Swarm-Modelling] Two PostDoc positions at University of Michigan
Date: Tue, 22 Jan 2008 16:52:40 -0500

Two Post-Doctoral positions are available to develop complex system
models that will advance the science of infection transmission
systems. One is in the Center for Advancing Microbial Risk Assessment
is available to work with Drs. James Koopman and Joseph Eisenberg in
the area of infection spread through populations via environmental
intermediates. This work creates a new scientific basis for epidemic
modeling and at the same time supports public health policy decisions.
The candidate will have the opportunity to define their own unique
projects that contribute to the overall project goals. A second
position will build on recent advances in understanding HIV
transmission. Agent based models will be used to analyze the
transmission system using data on HIV genetic sequences from infected
individuals. Ideally some familiarity with phylogenetic analysis as
well as complex system modeling is desired for this position. Both
positions imply a strong collaboration with the Center for the Study
of Complex Systems at the University of Michigan.

Ideal applicants would have a PhD in Computer Science, Physics,
Theoretical Ecology or a similar area with special emphasis in
modeling. Pay is determined by standard NIH Post-doc pay schedules.
Interested applicants should send their vita and a letter of interest
to Dr. James Koopman at address@hidden
