Objet: open postdoc positions
Dear colleagues,

We would like to advertise two postdoctoral positions to work on modeling and evaluation of covid-19 screening strategies. The positions will be located respectively at the Centre de Physique Théorique in Marseilles (supervision by Alain Barrat) and at the EPIcx lab in Paris (supervision by Vittoria Colizza), with a close collaboration between the two groups.

The work will take place within the ANR-funded project COSCREEN “Design and evaluation of Covid screening strategies in various contexts based on empirical contact data” that aims at the optimization of Covid screening and containment strategies. It will involve the development of data-driven numerical models of the spread of Covid using high-resolution data, the design, evaluation and optimization of screening and other containment strategies, the development of new methodologies to couple microscopic simulations with the evolution of the spread at population level, and the analysis of epidemic data.

We are looking for young researchers with good expertise in modelling of diffusion and/or epidemic processes, programming, numerical simulations, network science, network data analysis.

Position starting date: as soon as possible (April 1st at the latest)

We would be grateful if you could forward this to anyone who could be interested in these positions. They should send CV and a letter of motivation to alain.barrat@cpt.univ-mrs.fr and epicx.lab@gmail.com

Thanks and best regards

Alain Barrat & Vittoria Colizza
