Fully-funded PhD studentship (UK) – Modelling disease spread in enclosed spaces (Deadline: 1st May)
A fully-funded PhD studentship on the mathematical modelling of disease spread and non-pharmaceutical interventions in enclosed spaces is available, made possible through funding from the new OneZoo Centre for Doctoral Training. The student will be based at the School of Mathematics in Cardiff University. They will be supervised by Dr Thomas Woolley (CU Maths), Dr Katerina Kaouri (CU Maths) Dr Arwyn Edwards (Aberystwyth, Department of Life Sciences) and Prof Ian Griffiths (Oxford Maths). The project will be conducted in collaboration with the Welsh Government, with the aim to inform policymaking for future epidemics.
The student should have a degree in Mathematics, Physics, Engineering or Computer Science. This studentship is open to both home and international students.
The transdisciplinary OneZoo CDT will equip the next generation of world-leading scientists with the skills and insight necessary to tackle current and future zoonotic threats. It brings together award-winning educators and experts in zoonotic diseases and environmental sciences from Cardiff University, Aberystwyth University, Queen’s University Belfast, and the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, who will work collectively, fostering the creation of the CDT research community, and empower students to develop their own training and acquire strong employability skills. A diverse range of external partners will provide the students with real world knowledge to complement their academic training.
