This week we are bringing you a chance for a new position, a chance to get funding, and a chance to think if we are really doing the right thing when it gets to malaria elimination and eradication.
Are you a global expert specializing in epidemiology and/or surveillance of infectious diseases? With a strong preference for malaria? And are you a respected member of the surveillance and epidemiology communities? Then you may be the right candidate for the position of Senior Program Officer (Epidemiology) that the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation is looking for. Read more details about this exciting position here, and don't forget to mention MalariaWorld when applying!
Next, are you into animal model testing of the Malaria Box hit compounds and their derivatives in neglected infectious disease models? Such as schistosomiasis, cryptosporidiosis, filariasis, tuberculosis, as well as other infections where there is comorbidity in children with malaria? Then here's an opportunity to get funding from MMV! Check out here for more information on how to apply.
Finally, if you have an opinion about the way the world is moving towards malaria eradication, you should read the contribution from Bill Jobin, titled: "Brief histories of two contrasting strategies in the fight against malaria". Bill is inviting your views...who dares to share his/her opinion?
Enjoy this week's MalariaWorld - the MW team.
