Specializing in Viral Dynamic, Phlyogenetics, and Infectious
The University of Maryland School of Medicine, Institute of Human
Virology, Division of Epidemiology and Prevention is recruiting a
full-time Faculty Research Associate to work on mathematical
modeling of viral diseases. Particular emphasis will be on SARS
Co-V-2 and HIV.
The successful applicant will work with Dr. Man Charurat and his
team to develop mathematical models that focus on viral dynamics,
infectious disease modeling and phylogenetics of viral infections
toward control strategies for HIV and COVID-19. The candidate will
also collaborate with laboratory-based virologists, immunologists,
oncologists, and clinical investigators to generate datasets
appropriate for model testing and validation.
PhD degree in statistics/biostatistics, computer science, applied
mathematics, biomedical engineering, physics, computational
biology, evolutionary biology or other fields with strong
Strong programming skills in C/C++, Matlab, Monolix/Mlxtran,
python, and/or R and previous experience with differential
equation-based models are required.
Candidate must have experience with BEAST, https://beast.community
