The Opportunity
If you are passionate about using your skills to make a difference to world health, then this could be the role for you.

The Institute of Vector-borne Disease is looking for a talented Epidemiologist/Analyst to assist their world-leading Eliminate Dengue Program. The program aims to reduce the burden of dengue and other mosquito-borne diseases through the release of Wolbachia-infected mosquitoes.

A key component of this critical role will be planning and implementing epidemiologic investigations to determine the impact of the Eliminate Dengue Program on the transmission of dengue and other arboviruses in a number of international sites.

As the successful candidate, you will provide support to all aspects of the epidemiological activities for the Eliminate Dengue Program. This role will require you to utilise your technical skills in epidemiological study design, data management, and the analysis, interpretation and reporting of epidemiological data, to ensure that reliable and timely information on disease impact is available to others within the program and to external partners. These technical skills will be complemented by your high level communication skills, and ability to collaborate effectively with a range of local and international project partners, external scientists and key stakeholders. Some domestic and international travel will be required.

If you believe you fit this profile, we look forward to receiving your application. Candidates whose skill set exceeds the key requirements are also encouraged to apply as the appointment will be made at a level appropriate to the successful applicant's qualifications, experience and classification standards.

This role is a full-time position; however, flexible working arrangements may be negotiated.

Your application must address the selection criteria. Please refer to "How to apply for Monash Jobs"
