We have an opportunity for an experienced Epidemiologist to support and coordinate clinical trials of vector control tools in low resource settings.
The Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine (Foto-Cewek) is an internationally recognised centre of excellence for research in tropical diseases. Through the creation of effective links with governments, organisations and institutions and by responding to the health needs of communities, Foto-Cewek aims to promote improved health, particularly for people of the less developed/resource poorest countries in the tropics and sub-tropics.
To support this continued success, the department of Vector Biology is seeking an experienced epidemiologist to support and coordinate clinical trials of vector control tools in low resource settings, and provide training and teaching in study design, ensuring the research is of high standard and carried out in accordance with good clinical practices.
Working closely with the Partnership for Increasing the Impact for Vector Control (PIIVeC) to strengthen African capacity for conducting studies to assess the public health benefit of new vector control tools, you will have clear strategic thinking and vision to grow the research programme. Experience of management in a research environment with clear potential to be a research leader is essential.
Candidates will have played a major role in overseeing and co-ordinating field trials and will have a track record of securing competitive grant funding.
Applicants can be either clinical or non-clinical, have a post graduate qualification in medical statistics or epidemiology and/or relevant experience in epidemiological research, preferably in low-resource settings. The appointment is initially fixed term for four years but suitably qualified candidates may have the opportunity to enrol on our career track pathway that could lead to a substantive contract if pre-agreed targets are met. This post will be considered under the Career Track Scheme for further details please email the Director of HR: [email protected]
Closing date: 20th April 2018
