PhD opportunity - Infectious Disease Modeling & Epidemiology

Dr Lanzas is recruiting a PhD student to participate in a recently funded NIH project in the area of infectious disease modeling. The project is a collaborative effort with faculty at Kansas State University and will integrate data generated in a natural infection model system (Escherichia coli – cattle) through experimental challenge studies, field transmission studies, and animal movement monitoring systems with mathematical models to better characterize exposure heterogeneity for the transmission of enteric pathogens.


Applicants with DVM degree or master degree in epidemiology or related area and interest in quantitative methods and infectious diseases are preferred. Applicants must meet the requirements of the Comparative Biomedical Sciences graduate program at NCSU. Applications for the fall admission are due on January 15th.
