Would you like to contribute to more and better evidence of the effects of interventions to manage the ongoing pandemic and to prepare for future epidemics?

Two full-time researcher positions are available at the Centre for Epidemic Interventions Research (CEIR), which is placed in the Norwegian Institute of Public Health. The overall mission for the newly established centre is to produce more and better evidence on the effects of public health and social interventions, and non-pharmacological infection control measures, specifically. This also includes adverse consequences. The centre will collaborate with researchers, institutions, organisations, and stakeholders both nationally and internationally. The centre works closely with the World Health Organization's intiative to strengthen the evidence base for decisions about public health and social measures.

We are looking for researchers who have experience in conducting randomized trials. Furthermore, you should have a strong interest in developing trials of infection control measures and/or of interventions to improve adherence to infection control measures.
