A postdoctoral position studying ecological influences on rabies infection in bat communities is available in the Department of Ecology & Evolutionary Biology at the University of Tennessee in Knoxville. The position is funded by NSF through its Ecology of Infectious Diseases program. In collaboration with Profs. Tom Hallam, Aaron King, and Gary McCracken at UT, Boston University, and the Centers for Disease Control, the successful candidate will assist in the development and implementation of computational models integrating individual-level immunological, physiological, and virus transmission information with population-level genetic, demographic, and environmental factors.
