Current Job Opportunities with the One Health EJP
Research Fellow: Modelling and Machine Learning
The University of Surrey are recruiting for a Research Fellow in Modelling and Machine Learning.
The project aims is to enhance the prevention, detection and control of zoonoses and antimicrobial resistance. To achieve this goal the successful applicant will formulate and apply mathematical models in conjunction with the development of next-generation AI.
Research Fellow: Molecular Microbiology with a focus on AMR and Diagnostics
The ideal candidates will have strong interests in research to mitigate the threats of zoonotic pathogens and AMR; including, host-pathogen interactions, role of the microbiome, foodborne diseases, AMR, emerging threats and risk assessment. The main focus of the project will be investigating the emergence and transmission of AMR and the development of rapid diagnostics.
Research Fellow: Bioinformatics
The main focus of this project is to develop a point-of-incidence toolbox, for identification and characterisation of emerging viral threats for humans, domestic animals and wildlife. The postholder will contribute to the development of a bioinformatics toolkit to integrate genomic, phenotypic and epidemiological data, providing immediate and relevant information for assessing the threat of emerging pathogens.
Research Fellow: Molecular Parasitology
The main focus of the PARADISE project will be to develop and validate novel typing and detection methods for the foodborne protozoa Cryptosporidium and Giardia, whereas the TOXOSOURCES project aims to determine the relative contributions of the different sources of Toxoplasma gondii infection.
PhD “Genomic Epidemiology of Salmonella”
This PhD project aims to identify the potential determinants of the current upsurge of Salmonella. This project will assesses possible changes at the levels of primary (livestock) production, public health system function and the pathogen itself. This includes in depth evaluation of Salmonella control measures particularly in poultry production and human infectious disease surveillance systems, as well as changes in underlying epidemiological characteristics to uncover changes in the circulating Salmonella strains and the importance of the different animal reservoirs.
