last modified May 25, 2014 08:51 AM
The Saw Swee Hock School of Public Health (SSHSPH) at the National University of Singapore (NUS) is recruiting a full-time Research Associate / Research Fellow in Infectious Disease Epidemiology. The successful candidate will be involved in the development and coordination of the Singapore Social, Lifestyle and Infection Networks Group (Singapore SLING), a multi-disciplinary consortium to study the role of contact networks in the spread of infectious diseases, and will analyze data from existing projects and forthcoming projects on the transmission of influenza, hospital-acquired infections and dengue. The candidate will work closely with collaborators at the Armed Forces Research Institute of Medical Sciences (AFRIMS) in Thailand, the Institute for Scientific Interchange Foundation (ISI) in Italy, as well as collaborating institutions within NUS and the rest of Singapore. The ideal candidate should possess a strong background in quantitative epidemiology, biostatistics, computational science or mathematical modeling. A post-graduate degree in one of these subjects would be advantageous. Good writing skills and fluency in English are required, as are good organizational skills and the ability to work to tight deadlines. An interest in contributing to undergraduate teaching is also welcome but not required. The position will be funded for an initial period of 18 months and could be extended. The candidate will also have the opportunity to receive training with overseas collaborators. 
The successful candidate will be based in the Infectious Diseases Programme, a dynamic, multi-disciplinary team of local and international faculty conducting research within Singapore and the Southeast Asian region.
