Telethon Kids Institute has a unique opportunity for a skilled Statistical Modeller to join the Geospatial Health and Development (GHD) Team.  GHD is a new and growing team, whose mission is to generate innovative methods to understand major infectious diseases including COVID-19 and malaria, to support effective planning of disease control on a national and international scale.

This is a 12 month full-time position at academic level A (either Post-doc or RA). It would require general analysis and modelling skills in R, and would be ideally suited to someone who likes building bespoke Bayesian models in greta, Stan, JAGS, or similar.
