    The Infection Analytics team at UNSW Sydney is seeking a post-doc / research fellow in mathematical biology, to model viral and immune dynamics in HIV infection.

    The Infection Analytics Program at the Kirby Institute is an interdisciplinary team including applied mathematicians, physicists, and computer scientists, who collaborate widely with around 30 experimental groups around the world to model within-host and epidemiological aspects of infection and immunity. The group has a high publication output and a strong history in successful interdisciplinary training. It is an ideal venue for students or post-docs with a quantitative background (mathematics / physics / statistics) aiming to establish themselves in mathematical biology.

    UNSW Sydney is a ‘top 50’ ranked global university, situated 5 km (3 miles) from Central Sydney, and 1.5 km (1 mile) from Sydney’s beaches.

    More information on the group’s research is available at the Infection Analytics website:
