The PDF will be part of an established research team that includes mathematical modelers, health services researchers, health economists, physicians, biostatisticians and health policy makers.
This PDF position involves implementing a mathematical/infectious disease model to estimate the prevalence, the untreated population, and the undiagnosed population for hepatitis C virus (HCV). The model will use the observed occurrence of current HCV-related events to make inference about the HCV-incidence in the past that lead to them using Bayesian method. The PDF will work closely with analysts, the Principal Investigators, and other members of the study team, to identify important parameters and architecture for the model. This study will be carried out in conjunction with the Toronto Health Economics and Technology Assessment (THETA) Collaborative, located at the University Health Network in Toronto.Responsibilities

- Working with and potentially managing other researchers and analysts
- Performing necessary data collection for the model
- Supporting and/or conducting analyses for other related projects
