Two postdoctoral positions Epidemiology and Modelling Group Department of Plant Science University of Cambridge

We are seeking modellers to build on our work to describe how plant pests and diseases spread in a natural and agricultural setting including developed and developing countries. The modelling is intended to inform policy at a national and international level to aid in optimal surveillance to predict the future spread of emerging diseases and to allow for exploration of optimal management scenarios. You will be expected to communicate the results of these models to stakeholders from various national and international bodies. The successful applicants will work with the current team of modellers to optimise and expand existing modelling approaches and will have unique opportunities to inform the implementation of national disease management policies, as well as for publication.
