Postdoctoral Position in Statistics for COVID-19 modelling, Oslo, Norway

Two-year Postdoctoral Position in Statistics for COVID-19 modelling, Oslo, Norway

The postdoc will develop new statistical methodology and models to describe and predict the dynamics of the COVID-19 pandemics in Norway and across the Nordic countries. This is part of a new exciting Nordic collaboration project financed by NordForsk with Tom Britton, Stockholm University, Arnoldo Frigessi, Oslo University and Lasse Leskelä, Alto University as co-PIs. If you are selected as postdoc, you will work in close collaboration with the three Nordic teams. We will work on the covid-19 dynamics in space and type, also across the Nordic borders; we will exploit human mobility data in real time described by telecom mobility data; develop methods for probabilistic short term prediction; evaluate and compare alternative interventions. The project has unique access to COVID-19 data streams. There is a possibility to extend the period for an additional year.
