This week we're posting a job, an event, and a new forum. First a position with Penn State University for an ecologist/entomologist to work on a project which involves field and lab-based studies with partners in India and the U.S., with research directed towards understanding the ecological determinants of malaria transmission and the consequences of insecticide resistance. Read more about the position here.
Next is an upcoming Keystone Symposium on malaria, January 20-25, 2013. Since basic and translational malaria research is eminently multidisciplinary, the meeting will bring together researchers working in disciplines ranging from basic molecular studies to population biology, thereby promoting the exchange of ideas both to deepen our understanding of malaria and to develop novel control measures. Another goal is to enable the identification and prioritization of the next generation of challenges faced by the field. Read more about the meeting here.
Finally, a new forum discussion on 'Sustainable malaria control', mediated by Dr. Clive Shiff. Dr. Shiff is concerned about the current philosophy about malaria control, and would like to start a conversation to build upon this controversial subject. Please share your views on this important topic here.
