We are currently looking for PhD students and Post Doctoral Fellows for our EPIC project and related works. EPIC is a CIHR-funded project with the goal of developing a micro-simulation model of chronic respiratory diseases. It is an exciting set of activities involving advanced data analytics and disease simulation. The team includes top-notch simulation experts, clinical scientists, and policy analysts from across Canada. It is a multi-year funded study that provides an excellent set of projects for motivated prospective PhD students and Post Docs. A national network of experts is involved in these projects, providing excellent networking opportunities for the candidate.

Passion for science and quantitative skills are requirements. Specifically, the candidates should have expertise in computer programming in C/C++. These are also a plus: database programming in SQL, Web programming, and experience with R.
