Post-doctoral fellowship on Networks and Health

last modified Feb 18, 2019 12:46 PM

A fellowship on Networks and Health is currently available in the Community Interventions for Infection Control Unit (CI-ICU), Division of Global Migration and Quarantine (DGMQ) at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in Atlanta, Georgia. CI-ICU plays a key role in the development of recommendations on use of non-pharmaceutical interventions (NPIs) for mitigating the transmission of pandemic influenza. Community-level NPIs can be added during pandemics and implemented in a graded fashion depending on the severity of the pandemic; these include measures aimed to reduce social contacts between people in schools, workplaces, and other community settings.

The specific opportunities for the fellow include:
Conduct social network analysis to assess social contact and mixing patterns in schools and workplaces.
Collaborate on epidemiological and modeling projects on NPIs.
Develop innovative strategies for reducing or slowing the transmission of pandemic influenza.
