Mathematical Modeller @Burnet Institute

Close date: 28 August 2023

Are you a talented researcher eager to undertake real-world mathematical modelling projects in infectious diseases and global health? Then this could be the role for you!

A unique opportunity exists for a Mathematical Modeller to join Burnet’s Modelling & Biostatistics team. You will be part of an innovative global team of experts that are developing and applying epidemiological and costing models around the world across a range of disease areas including COVID-19, HIV, TB, malaria, viral hepatitis, maternal and child health.

Modelling and analytical outputs will be provided to governments, policy makers, and other partners including the World Bank, Global Fund, and international health agencies, to improve health budget investment towards better decision-making and impact around the world.

In this role, you will:

  • Develop and apply mathematical models of key health and disease areas, using appropriate epidemiological, statistical, mathematical, and economic techniques.
  • Communicate with epidemiologists, public health experts, government officials, and global health and international aid agencies.
  • Undertake research projects with a high degree of autonomy.

Ideally, we are seeking a full-time appointment based in Melbourne, however we are open to part time arrangements (0.4 – 1.0 FTE) and fully remote working (from anywhere in Australia) with occasional travel to Melbourne.
