Position Description: Develop models, tools, and results to make a difference in HIV, STI, and viral hepatitis in the U.S.!

We are seeking a postdoctoral fellow with interest and expertise in infectious disease epidemiologic and/or economic modeling to join our team, working on quantitative studies of HIV, STI, and viral hepatitis to guide public health action.

The successful candidate will work closely with Drs. Eli Rosenberg, David Holtgrave, Erika Martin at University at Albany on a CDC-funded Cooperative Agreement to create and adapt models to improve public health decision-making and effectiveness across these disease areas. The Coalition for Applied Modeling for Prevention (CAMP), recently funded for a new 5-year period, is led by UAlbany and includes teams from Emory University, Johns Hopkins University, University at Washington, Georgia State University, and UC San Diego. Highly collaborative and fun working groups from these institutions, along with CDC National Center for HIV/AIDS, Viral Hepatitis, STD, and TB Prevention scientists, have produced a number of high-impact studies and decision- making tools to inform US public health decisions in HIV, STI, viral hepatitis, and tuberculosis. To learn more about CAMP’s previous work, see www.emorycamp.org and https://www.cdc.gov/nchhstp/neema/index.html.

The successful candidate would be engaged throughout the project lifecycle, including conceptualization, model parameter estimation, model building, manuscript writing, and presentation at scientific meetings and at CDC. Specific projects will vary during the postdoc period. The methods applied will vary with the particular analysis and candidate, but may include statistical, meta-analytic, compartmental/systems analytic, agent-based, and/or decision-analytic frameworks, focusing on epidemiologic and/or health economic perspectives. This candidate should have strong quantitative skills, excitement for learning more about these methods and disease areas, and be able to work independently within a team environment. All previous CAMP postdocs have continued on to successful positions in academia and at the CDC.
