The Department Epidemiology of acting head Dr. Berit Lange at the Helmholtz Centre for Infection Research (HZI) in Braunschweig, Germany is offering a position as
Doctoral Researcher (f/m/d)
Project title: Establishment of Epidemic Panels for One Health Surveillance in Sub-Saharan Africa
The Department of Epidemiology consists of more than 40 employees (www.helmholtz-hzi.de/epidemiologie). Our research focuses on the fundamental relationships between the occurrence, spread and prevention of infectious diseases in the human population at national and international level. We are working on the area of immunology and infection as part of the NAKO
health study (www.nako.de). The infrastructure of the department also includes the PhD Programme "Epidemiology".
In the "Clinical Epidemiology" team (Head: Dr. Berit Lange), we conduct clinical and population-based epidemiological studies (e.g. https://hzi-c19-antikoerperstudie.de), create evidence syntheses and meta-analyses (www.serohub.net) and investigate the dynamics of respiratory infectious diseases within the framework of large modeling networks (www.respinow.de). At the German Centre for Infection Research (www.dzif.de) we are active as co-coordinators of the “Translational Infrastructure Bioresources, Biodata and Digital Health” unit. In the "Climate, Cohorts and PIA" team (leader: Dr. Stefanie Castell), we focus on the area of
"digital epidemiology", investigating the determinants and consequences of infections as well as connections with climatic changes. Projects in the field of multi-omics and long-term cohort studies are also integrated. The study center of the NAKO health study in Hanover also belongs to the team.
Both teams are involved in the ELIPSA (area: Pandemic Preparedness & Epidemic Panels).
Here, together with partners at the HZI (Helmholtz Institute for One Health, HIOH), in Côte d'Ivoire, at the University of Greifswald, a population-based cohort in Cote d`Ivoire with a focus on One Health will be established. The aim is for the jobholder to do a doctorate in the Department’s PhD Programme “Epidemiology” (www.helmholtz-hzi.de/phdepi).
