    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 newwork 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.

    The post-doctoral fellow will be recruited to work on the EOC modeling project: Simulations and Exercises. The successful candidate will be hosted at York University and supervised by Professor Ali Asgary.

    Candidates must have a PhD in public health, disaster health, emergency management, or relevant fields, with demonstrated working or research experience at  an Emergency Operations Centre (EOC), emergency table-top exercises design and implementation, multi-stakeholder communication, and decision making under pressure and uncertainty.

    Please submit your application, including a cover letter at 

    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.
