Opportunities

Postdocs

Postdocs wanting to apply for fellowship funding are welcome to apply at any time. Email me (Alex.Rowe@ed.ac.uk) with ideas about possible funding sources, and we can discuss projects. Include a full CV with names and contact details of two referees.  Applicants should ideally have a passion for malaria research combined with drive, initiative, independence, “green-fingers” in the lab, the ability to write coherently and proven ability to finish-up and publish previous projects. However, if some of these boxes remain unticked, training and mentoring will be given!

Projects will be in the general area of malaria host-parasite interactions outlined on the research pages.
