Post-Doctoral Associate Position in the Northeast Center of Excellence
in Climate Change & Emerging Infectious Disease

A Post-Doctoralposition is available within the research cluster
“Predicting current and future human risk of infection with
vector-borne pathogens in the Northeast and the US”, in the Department

This research project is in collaboration with the Arbovirus Laboratory,
Wadsworth Center in Albany NY. Minimum qualifications include a Ph.D. in
fields related to Climate Science, Environmental Science, Biostatistics
or modeling of dynamical systems. This position will involve data
analytics and computer-based modeling of climate effects on vector
biology and disease spread with focus on the northeast US.

Candidates should have a record of scientific rigor, creativity, and
ability to work both independently and as part of an interdisciplinary
research team. Excellent communication and organizational skills are
required.

Preferred qualifications for the position include: experience in the
analysis of the physical climate system by means of statistical data
analysis, and research background in the nexus between regional climate
change and public health. Applicants are expected to have a proven
record of computer coding skills (e.g. Python, R or an equivalent
high-level programming language) for quantitative data analysis. Ideal
for the interdisciplinary collaboration is a background in infectious
disease modeling.

The Department of Atmospheric and Environmental Sciences at the
