Applications are invited for two two-year postdoctoral research positions to join the NIH-funded Center for the Assessment of the Public Health Impact of Tobacco Regulations (CAsToR), with a multidisciplinary and multi-institutional team of collaborators; David Levy (Georgetown University), Rafael Meza and David Mendez (University of Michigan), Ted Holford (Yale University). The postdoc will develop and examine simulation models of tobacco use that explicitly consider multiple tobacco-products and multiple disease outcomes. The interdisciplinary team includes epidemiologists, economists, tobacco scientists, applied mathematicians and statisticians. The project will conduct analyses of the public health impact of tobacco regulations across a range of tobacco-related conditions and policy outcomes. Desired areas of expertise include: dynamic and complex systems, parameter estimation, computer programming (familiarity with, R, Python, C++, Matlab), statistical analysis, econometrics and epidemiology modeling. Experience developing mathematical/simulation models to address problems in public health, epidemiology or health outcomes is a plus.
As a multi-institutional center, CAsToR offers a vibrant mathematical modeling and complex systems community. The position will be based at either Georgetown University or the University of Michigan. Applicants should have a doctoral degree in Epidemiology, Health Economics, Econometric, Engineering, Applied Mathematics, Mathematics, Statistics, Operations Research or related field.
The position is available immediately but starting date is negotiable.
