Postdoc: Optimising Intervention Strategies in Food Supply Systems

Depending on the applicant’s background and interest the postdoc could focus on any particular area or combinations of the following: 1) mathematical modeling of infectious diseases (e.g., Mycobacterium avium subsp. paratuberculosis ) and M. bovis (bovine tuberculosis or bTB) transmission in agricultural systems); 2) system dynamic modeling of antimicrobial resistance in food animal systems; and 3) optimizing milk quality in dairy farms. Please see the most recent references to each of these projects:

I would like to encourage individuals with a background in mathematical modeling of infectious diseases and/or population biology/analytical epidemiology/economics to apply. Knowledge of Bayesian methods would be a plus. Computer and mathematical expertise and a strong interest in infectious diseases are required.

Interested candidates should submit their curriculum vitae, a statement of interest, and the names and contact information of two referees to Yrjo Grohn. Review of applications will begin immediately and the positions are available as soon as qualified applicants are identified.
