    Postdoc position (20+ months): Modeling trypanosome infection, University of Glasgow, UK

    We are seeking a Postdoctoral Research Associate to join an innovative
    project funded by the Wellcome Trust, investigating trypanosome antigenic
    variation paradigms using natural systems. An interdisciplinary
    collaboration between Universities of Glasgow, Edinburgh and Liverpool, the
    post-holder will be working with Prof Christina Cobbold within the School of
    Mathematics and Statistics at the University of Glasgow (UK) collaborating
    closely with experimentalists to develop novel mathematical models of
    antigenic variation.

    With experience of working in a multidisciplinary environment, the postdoc will
    be developing novel mathematical models and tools to uncover the dynamics of
    antigenic variation from sequence data and other parasite and immune data
    sampled over time. This exciting project will yield new insights into the
    biological interactions between trypanosome parasites and their human and
    animal hosts information that we anticipate could be exploited to help
    combat the parasite and may be relevant for other pathogens that use
    antigenic variation for survival.

    Application deadline is August 10th 2021

    Information on how to apply can be found on the website: http://www.maths.gla.ac.uk/~cc/tryp.html

    Informal enquiries can be made to Christina Cobbold
