Post-Doctoral Fellowship Position in Health Outcomes Mathematical Modelling

Employer: Department of Mathematics & Statistics, University of Guelph
Location: Guelph, ON Canada
Start date (tentative): March/April, 2020

A post-doctoral fellowship (PDF) in Mathematical Modelling is available in the Department of Mathematics & Statistics, in Guelph, Ontario, Canada. The PDF will be part of a research team lead by Dr. Monica G. Cojocaru (Prof. of Mathematics, Guelph) and industrial partners at Sanofi Pasteur Canada.

This PDF position involves coding and analyzing an agent-based model of an infectious disease in a child care center, such as the one on Guelph Campus. The PDF will work closely with the Principal Investigator (Cojocaru) and industrial members of the team at Canada Sanofi to identify important parameters and architecture for the model. This position is for 2 years, with a possibility of teaching in the Department of Mathematics & Statistics (undergraduate mathematics or statistics). The position offers direct hands-on experience with working with an industrial partner.
