The Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine (LSTM) is an international centre of excellence and our researchers have access to the most up to date, cutting edge technology, making us world leaders in our field.


This post will work with Dr Martin Donnelly’s team within LSTM’s Vector Group and will be responsible for providing support to a number of different country projects including Benin, Cameroon, India, Kenya and Sudan by investigating the impacts of insecticide resistance on malaria control programmes. You will be expected to travel to each of the countries to collect specimens for gene expression studies which are to be conducted at LSTM in collaboration with project partners.
