    The Mathematics for Public Health (MfPH), funded by the  Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council (NSERC), is a program to develop a national network of infectious disease modellers and public health policy makers that can rapidly respond to public health emergencies.


    The MfPH initiative is a pan-Canadian, Emerging Infectious Disease Modelling (EIDM) multi-disciplinary network co-led by Fields Director, V. Kumar Murty, and York University mathematics professor, Jianhong Wu. The goal of the network is to develop advanced mathematical techniques for the study of potential health crises and to train a cohort  of mathematical modelling experts to help achieve public health objectives. This initiative is a partnership between The Fields Institute, the Atlantic Association for Research in Mathematical Sciences (AARMS), the Centre de Recherches Mathématiques (CRM), and the Pacific Institute for Mathematical Sciences (PIMS).


    The network will use state-of-the-art mathematical modelling techniques to advise on public health policy with the long-term goal of boosting future epidemic preparedness and improving Canada’s resilience in emergency situations.


    Multiple post-doctoral fellows will be recruited to one of the 11 inaugural MfPH projects.


    Successful candidates will be recruited to a particular project and  jointly supervised by members of the project team.


    The candidate should have a Ph.D. in applied mathematics/mathematical physics/mathematical biology or a related field at the time of appointment. The successful candidate will have demonstrated the ability to carry out creative, innovative, independent research, have peer-reviewed publications in leading journals in the field and have mastery of mathematical modeling.


    Please submit your application, including a cover letter indicating the project that you would like to join through

    Candidates applying to multiple projects must submit an application for each project separately. Applications should be submitted immediately and will be assessed on a rolling basis. Start dates are negotiable, and may start as early as 1 July 2021.
