Post-Doctoral Research Associate

We are pleased to announce a recently funded social science post-doc on infectious zoonotic disease in forest gradients. The post-doc will work together with a team of anthropologists, ecologists, veterinary scientists and parasitologists at the University of Georgia (UGA) and the Gorgas Memorial Institute of Health Studies on a three-year NSF Dynamics of Integrated Socio-Environmental Systems (CNH2) grant. The team will investigate relationships between habitat characteristics, human activity, and disease transmission for two zoonotic vector-borne tropical diseases, cutaneous leishmaniasis and Chagas disease (see https://anthropology.uga.edu/news/scientists-get-16m-study-disease-transmission). Research will take place in Panama, and the post-doc will work at UGA with annual travel to Panama. The position is for 1 year, with renewal possible for an additional 1.5 years.

Quantitative and qualitative data skills, GIS, and Spanish language skills are preferred. For additional information, please see this link for post-doc posting number G/R07304P:  https://www.ugajobsearch.com/postings/143089

Review of applications will begin on June 30, 2020.  We look forward to anthropologists’ application for this post-doc.
