The Nordic Society for Veterinary Epidemiology (NOSOVE) is an informal organization with the vision of advancing veterinary epidemiology. The volunteering board aim to fulfill the vision by providing courses and opportunities to socialise and strengthen the network among post graduate students, researchers and others with an interest in epidemiology. Events are presented through the society network (blogspot).
NOSOVE started in 1988 as a collaboration between the Nordic countries Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden, and has expanded to include the Baltic countries, but welcome members and participants from all countries.

Research Assistant/Associate in Mathematical and Epidemiological Modelling

Salary: Grade 6 £26,004 – £29,249 / Grade 7 £31,948 – £35,938 per annum
Ref: 001648

We are looking for a mathematical modeller to develop state-of-the-art epidemiological models of the transmission and control of the zoonotic pathogen E. coli O157.

You will be based within the University of Glasgow’s Boyd Orr Centre for Population and Ecosystem Health (www.gla.ac.uk/boydorr), where you will join a vibrant grouping of epidemiologists, biologists, statisticians, veterinarians, physicists, ecologists and mathematicians with a focus on applying quantitative approaches to biological problems.

Ideally, you will have some knowledge of stochastic modelling and parameter estimation. A background in epidemiology or mathematical biology and enthusiasm for learning new approaches would be helpful.

The project is part of a Scottish Government funded Strategic Partnership for Animal Science Excellence (SPASE), and will involves close collaboration with statisticians, veterinarians, and biologists at BioSS (Biomathematics and Statistics Scotland), SAC (Scottish Agricultural College) and MRI (Moredun Research Institute).

This post is funded for 3 years.

Informal enquiries can be made to louise.matthews@glasgow.ac.uk
