Are you interested in epidemic models of within-host dynamics and between-host transmission? If so, a postdoc with Dr. Lorenzo Pellis in Manchester (School of Mathematics, which includes pure, applied and statistics), might be something for you. He's advertising two postdocs of 2.5 years, one is more theoretical and one more applied, but both involving modelling and computer programming.

Anthony Scott and Stefan Flasche run an intensive 2-week course on The Epidemiological Evaluation of Vaccines at LSHTM. In 2018, the course will run from 2rd to 13th July. Although there are several courses in vaccinology, few are aimed at advanced epidemiological tools for vaccine evaluation. This course fills that gap, providing an understanding of the methods used in the evaluation of vaccines from early clinical trials through to assessment of population impact, modelling, cost-effectiveness analysis, safety surveillance and policy. It aims to tackle issues in high, middle and low income countries.
The first Belgian health economics research prize “Fernand Nedée” of the Royal Academy was awarded to Philippe Beutels for research on determinants of health care consumption and of quality of life, covering seven journal articles. This research line continues at CHERMID through an FWO project that started in 2017.
Nine SIMID members joined the Sixth International Conference on Infectious Disease Dynamics to share three days of intense dialogue on our ideas, data, insight, models and methods. It was great to promote our work and to meet other researchers to discuss future research opportunities. (more…)
We would like to thank all the participants and speakers of the 7th SIMID-RESCEU-TransMID workshop. The presence and enthusiasm of such a variety of researchers make these meetings so worthwhile. We saw great and inspiring talks and had plenty of intensive and fruitful discussions. You can find some photos below. See you next year!
