Program Description:
Rutgers – New Jersey Medical School
Newark, NJ

Interns at Rutgers - New Jersey Medical School will serve as research assistants for the project "Maternal pertussis immunization to reduce deaths and severe disease in young infants: Costs and health consequences". This project entails development of two models to evaluate the potential public health impacts and costs of maternal acellular pertussis (aP): a simple decision tree or Markov model focused on pregnant women and their newborns; and a complex dynamic transmission model that includes the entire population.  The evaluation will provide the information needed to decide whether, and under what conditions, maternal aP immunization would be a good public health investment in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs). The intern's task areas may include data analysis, mathematical modeling and assistance with documenting research findings.

Applicants should have strong quantitative and analytical skills, and an interest in mathematical modeling. Preference will be given to those who have taken the course ENV 304 / ECO 328 / EEB 304 / WWS 455 Disease Ecology, Economics, and Policy. This internship lasts 9 weeks, with start and end dates to be set in consultation with the intern.
