Upcoming Vacancy Announcements

  • Director, Division of International Epidemiology and Population Studies: Fogarty International Center (FIC) is seeking outstanding applicants to serve as the Director of the Division of International Epidemiology and Population Studies. The Director provides scientific leadership for a group of 10-15 research scientists. DIEPS is geared towards quantitative analysis of infectious diseases at the interface of applied research and global health policy. Primary concentrations include multi-national studies of the transmission dynamics and evolution of influenza, enteric infections, malaria, and a wide range of vector-borne and vaccine-preventable diseases. Over the years, the Division has developed global networks of mathematical modelers and infectious disease experts, with more than 400 collaborators on five continents. DIEPS research has influenced changes in public health policies and practices to decrease disease burden. The Division has a strong record of global capacity building through computational training workshops. DIEPS is expanding its expertise in computational modeling into new research areas including, but not limited to, antimicrobial resistance, disease interactions, and implementation science. This expansion would build on the division’s stellar scientific credentials and existing networks of collaborators.

    The ideal candidate has extensive experience working at the intersection of global health research and policy, and a demonstrated ability to build collaborative partnerships and mobilize resources from government and private sources. A background in quantitative approaches to the study of infectious diseases is desirable. The position will require working across a broad spectrum of disease modeling issues and interfacing with academia, government, and global health organizations. Besides having the flexibility and intellectual curiosity to work across discipline boundaries, qualified individuals should also have the ability to collaborate widely, both within NIH and outside the agency, and to work effectively as a team member and team leader.
