[ES_JOBS_NET] Postdoc, vector-borne disease and climate, NCAR, Colorado

Postdoctoral Fellow I

http://ift.tt/2tqypv4

Job Description

 

Postdoctoral
Fellow I

 

This
is a full-time, 2-year term position. This position will be
posted until 4 pm on June 18, 2017 or until a sufficient
number of applications have been received.  Thereafter,
applications will be reviewed on an as-needed basis.

 

NCAR
– Research Applications Laboratory (RAL) – Climate Science and
Applications Program (CSAP)

 

Partial
relocation costs paid per UCAR’s relocation policy.

 

U.S.
Citizenship, Permanent Residency, or other protected status
under 8 U.S.C. 1324b(a)(3) is required for this position. 
UCAR/NCAR will not sponsor a work visa (e.g., J-1, H1-B, etc.)
for this position.

 

Where
You Will Work

Located
in Boulder, Colorado, the National Center for Atmospheric
Research (NCAR) is one of the world’s premier scientific
institutions, with an internationally recognized staff and
research program dedicated to advancing knowledge, providing
community-based resources, and building human capacity in the
atmospheric and related sciences.

 

The
Research Applications Laboratory is one of five laboratories
within NCAR.  Its mission is to conduct directed research that
contributes to fundamental understanding of the atmosphere and
related physical, biological, and social systems; to support,
enhance, and extend the capabilities of the scientific
community; and to develop and transfer knowledge and
technology for the betterment of life on Earth.

 

What
You Will Do

Based
on the success of the postdoctoral training fellowship program
begun in 2010, a new round will commence in 2017, continuing a
partnership between the National Center for Atmospheric
Research (NCAR) and the Centers for Disease Control and
Prevention (CDC). This is a full-time, 2-year term position.
The fellow hired for this position will conduct research on
current and future health risks. The fellow will collaborate
with the CDC’s Division of Vector-Borne Diseases (DVBD) in
Fort Collins, CO. The fellow will acquire specific training in
atmospheric and climate research following NCAR’s established
advanced study postdoctoral training program (ASP), as well as
training in public health at CDC. The goal is to increase the
number of scientists with the appropriate experience and
training to conduct research in the emerging field of weather,
climate and health.

 

In
this position, in collaboration with CDC’s DVBD, the fellow
will focus on research that will include development of
spatially- and temporally-explicit models to predict the risk
of vector-borne diseases such as human plague, Lyme disease,
tularemia, dengue, chikungunya, Zika, and West Nile viruses.
The population dynamics of disease vectors (e.g., fleas,
mosquitoes, ticks) are linked to many factors, among them
meteorological variables such as temperature, humidity and
precipitation; therefore, the position will focus on the
ecological and disease expertise necessary to develop and
employ useful disease risk models for present and future
(i.e., predictive) conditions. This fellow will divide his/her
time between Fort Collins and Boulder CO.

 

The
postdoctoral fellow will work closely with scientists and
other professionals at CDC, NCAR, universities, and public
health agencies undertaking research on weather, climate and
human health and will be expected to submit the results of the
research to peer-reviewed journals and present research at
scientific meetings.

 

The NCAR/CDC DVBD
fellow performs independent and collaborative research
developing spatio-temporal models for analyzing the effects
of weather, climate and other variables on the distribution
and abundance of disease vectors and the transmission
dynamics of disease agents. Bacterial diseases of particular
interest include plague, tularemia, and Lyme disease;
arboviruses of particular interest include dengue,
chikungunya, Zika and West Nile although models should be
broadly applicable to other vector-borne diseases. Temporal
analyses may include the effects of short-term
meteorological events, seasonal changes, annual variation,
and potential long-term climatic change on vector abundance,
human case occurrence and pathogen transmission.  Spatial
analyses may explore the relationship between spatial
heterogeneity in temperature and rainfall, particularly in
topographically diverse areas, and human risk of exposure to
vector-borne pathogens. Initial predictive models will be
evaluated with existing independent data sets obtained from
NCAR, CDC or other state and county health departments or by
future field studies.

Assists in
developing survey sampling strategy and collecting data.

Participates in
research development with internal and external
collaborators across disciplines.

Communicates
research results through publication in peer-reviewed
journals, meeting proceedings, and presentations at
scientific meetings.

 

Decision
Making & Problem Solving

In consultation with
the research team, the new hire helps to shape the specific
research tasks to be conducted as part of the project.

Solves problems that
may arise in the course of completing the research plan.
Works independently to solve these problems, establishes
schedules to meet deadlines as needed by supervisor. Obtains
guidance when she/he cannot make a decision or solve a
problem independently.

 

What
You Need

In-depth knowledge
of spatio-temporal statistics

Demonstrated skill
working with applications in public health (e.g.,
biostatistics in epidemiology)

Familiarity with
vector-borne diseases and/or disease ecology research

Previous experience
working with large datasets including environmental, health,
demographic and survey data

Demonstrated ability
to participate in interdisciplinary projects and interact
productively with physical and social scientists and public
health practitioners.

Ability to establish
and maintain a strong publication record.

Strong skills in
written and oral communication of research results,
including in an interdisciplinary context. 

Technical/computational
skills:

Excellent
programming skills in a statistics environment (e.g., R,
Matlab or STATA, SAS, SPSS)

Familiarity with GIS

 

Education
& Experience Requirement

Ph.D. degree in
statistics, epidemiology, atmospheric and environmental
sciences, climatology, medical geography, ecology or related
disciplines
