MSc Research Opportunities Novel

THEME: Novel mosquito-based malaria control methods in Uganda

The Target Malaria Project at the Uganda Virus Research Institute (UVRI) is investigating novel approaches that can reduce the numbers of mosquitoes that spread malaria, which would help complement existing control methods while building capacity for research sustainability, including field studies. The outcome is envisaged to contribute to long-term, sustainable, and cost effective control and prevention of malaria; resulting into improved livelihoods and economic growth.

As part of MAK/UVRI capacity building approach in achieving the above objectives, this is to invite applications for a two (2) year MSc research scholarship tenable at Makerere University in the Department of Zoology, Entomology and Fisheries Sciences.

The candidate must have admission to Makerere University on an MSc program and ready to join a vibrant research team and start immediately. The candidate must have prior knowledge in basic insect biology, malaria epidemiology, natural resources and other supportive knowledge that is deemed useful in addressing the team’s research questions. Applications should include a CV, statement of research interests and contact addresses (phone and email) of two referees.

The deadline for applications is 30th September 2016 at 17:00HRS. Applications should be sent as one pdf file to and copied to
