The successful applicant will be involved in i) analyzing mobile phone data from Nigeria to understand human mobility, ii) mapping our mobility estimates to settlements, and iii) analyzing the phylogenetics of polio viruses in the region, and iv) developing a dynamical spatially-explicit model of polio transmission and control.
The successful candidate will work on spatial epidemiological dynamics, employing a mixture of theory and statistical analysis of data, to understand the spatial spread of malaria and the feasibility of malaria elimination in the presence of human mobility.
Responsibilities for these positions include statistical analysis of epidemiological cohort and nested case-control studies, power and sample size calculations for new projects, statistical programming of advanced methods, and collaborating on the development of statistical and epidemiological methods, if there is interest.
The Department of Biostatistics at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health is seeking candidates with PhD in Statistics/Biostatistics for a postdoctoral position. Position involves the development of methodology to handle survival data with dependent selection, such as dependent truncation, and other complexities.
This position involves developing statistical methods, data analytic tools, and mathematical models for analyzing smartphone data-collected with our high-throughput digital phenotyping platform-in biomedical research cohorts with the goal of establishing more precise and dynamic disease phenotypes.
In addition, Carrier Fellows receive an annual allocation of $6,000 for research and travel expenses.
We are looking for applicants interested in an opportunity for independent research that reflects the spirit of George Carrier's approach and complements that of the current faculty in Applied Mathematics, broadly interpreted, including those in the Harvard Paulson School, the Department of Physics and elsewhere at the University
Candidates should evince intellectual leadership of, and high impact on, the field, and should show potential for significant contributions to the department, University, and wider scholarly community in the future.
