Research Fellow in Mathematical and Statistical Models of Viral Dynamics

Are you an ambitious researcher looking for your next challenge? Do you have an established background in mathematical and statistical models of viral dynamics? Do you want to further your career in one of the UK’s leading research intensive universities?

We are looking for a Research Fellow in Mathematical and Statistical Models of intra-cellular viral dynamics to join our project on the estimation of a human dose range for VH244 for the prevention and treatment of respiratory infections. You will work together with teams at the University of Leeds and Virion Biotherapeutics (VB) to mathematically, statistically and computationally characterise the dynamics of respiratory virus infection and a therapeutic interfering particle (TIP), making use of experimental data.

You will have a PhD in Applied Mathematics, Physics or a closely allied discipline. You will also have a strong background in mathematical biology, multi-scale modelling, agent-based modelling, and statistical inference and multi-variate analysis; as well as in theoretical immunology and infection, and mathematical, statistical and computational modelling of immune responses. In addition, you will have the ability to conduct independent research and a developing track record of publications in international journals, alongside excellent communication, planning and team working skills.
