POSTDOCTORAL RESEARCH OFFER

The research group of Dr. Buceta (http://www.thesimbiosys.com) offers a 2 years postdoctoral position to conduct research at the Institute for Integrative Systems Biology (I2SysBio, CSIC-UV) at Valencia (Spain).

The topic of the research will focus mainly, but not exclusively, on modeling the dynamics of the Ebola zoonotic niche within the context of the NIH funded project "Risk Assessment of Ebola Outbreaks through Probabilistic Modeling of Chiroptera Zoonotic Dynamics and Socioeconomic Factors”. Further background about this project can be found in the following publications:

https://www.nature.com/articles/s41598-018-26074-4/
https://journals.plos.org/plosone/article?id=10.1371/journal.pone.0179559

The research will be theoretical and computational, and performed in close collaboration with the group of Dr. Paolo Bocchini at Lehigh University (Pennsylvania, USA).

The project aims to understand how the migratory patterns of bats driven by environment/climate, and additional socio-economic factors of the population, contribute to the spreading of Ebola in Africa. Common tools used in this research include, but are not limited to, analysis and simulations of partial differential equations models, methods of dynamical systems, stochastic approaches, statistical analysis, and machine learning techniques.

The profile of candidates must be a PhD in Physics/Mathematics/Computer Science/Engineering...with programming skills and knowledge in modeling and dynamical systems. Expertise in machine learning is a plus.

The offer includes a competitive salary (net salary after taxes ~2,400 EUR/month**) and travel funds. Submissions must include a complete CV and the name and contact information of up to 3 possible referees.

Inquiries/submissions must be sent to [log in para visualizar] using "NIH POSTDOC” as the email subject.

The starting date of the appointment is asap (yet subjected to the required time to formalize the contract through CSIC) but no later than December 2020. Applications are welcome until the position is filled.

** The final figure of the NET salary depends upon the personal situation of the candidate, e.g. marital status.
