One Health Modelling Network for Emerging Infections (OMNI)

TERM: May 1, 2021 – March 31, 2023
Note: Initially this position will begin remotely, though the manager will be expected to be working from campus when York University resumes normal operations.


Under the general supervision of the Director, this position will liaise with academic partners within the grant as well as with public health and animal health stakeholders. The successful candidate will represent OMNI/RÉUNIS in the broader infectious disease modelling consortium and be a representative of the network. The result-driven Manager will oversee the operations of OMNI/RÉUNIS to ensure the project is implemented and stays compliant on spending and reporting. The position will organize network events and engagement activities for highly qualified personnel training and research dissemination.

The network is a multi-university, transdisciplinary initiative aimed at improving public health strategies for managing and mitigating emerging and infectious diseases using a One Health perspective. This is done through 1) curation and analysis of infection-related data in humans, animals and the environment; 2) mathematical modelling of detection, emergence, and continuation of infectious agents; 3) commitment to understanding and working with indigenous communities to identify unique transmission dynamics and mitigation strategies; 4) training a generation of HQP with interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary skills in One Health and Public Health; and 5) work with public health and animal health stakeholders to promote and educate on infectious diseases as well as produce evidence-based policy.
