Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine (LSTM) is a globally recognised centre of excellence for research that impacts global health. LSTM is partnering with Innovation to Impact (i2i) and Vestergaard as part of the Vector Control Professional Placement Programme to create the Vector Product Development Associate placement. This programme will allow researchers from African research institutes to work alongside vector control tool developers to enhance their skills and knowledge in product development.

The Opportunity 

As part of the Vector Control Professional Placement Programme, funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, we are looking to offer a 12-month placement for Vector Product Development Associate. The programme aims to identify and place qualified researchers already working in vector control at African research institutes with established vector control manufacturers, to offer hands-on experience in a range of aspects of product development.

This will be an opportunity to contribute directly to the development of global health interventions and provide a platform to develop cross-sectorial relationships and information exchange between the companies and African research partners.

Please note: All applications are processed through LSTM.
