Opportunities

Postdocs

Postdocs who are willing to apply for fellowship funding are welcome to apply at any time. Email me (Alex.Rowe@ed.ac.uk) and tell me why you want to work in the Rowe group. Include a full CV with names and contact details of two referees, and ideas about possible funding sources. 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. Does that sound like you? Please apply!
