The Turing-RSS lab, supporting The Joint Biosecurity Centre, has an open call for a number of early-career researchers to work across the lab and contribute to the existing research tasks, which include spatial-temporal modelling of Covid-19 incidence and prevalence, understanding the impact of Non-Pharmaceutical Interventions, and more broadly work on research questions of priority to policy makers in the UK’s response to the pandemic.
They are looking for candidates with experience in one or more of the following areas: statistical modelling; statistical machine learning; epidemiology; applied data analysis; modern statistical programming languages including probabilistic programming; applying the principles of reproducible data science. They are keen to support the full-time or part-time (0.4 FTE or more) secondment or fixed-term employment of early career researchers to the Alan Turing Institute until 31 March 2022 in the first instance, but with the possibility of longer-term appointment subject to continued funding of the Lab.
The rolling advert is open until 30 November 2021 at 23.59 - They will however be interviewing shortlisted candidate throughout the process, and reserve the right to close this campaign once all roles are filled. Applicants are encouraged to apply as soon as possible.
