This week we are listing another exciting position at the Sanger Institute:

Position: Staff scientist, Experimental Genetics

There is an opening for a Staff Scientist in the Rayner lab (Sanger Institute) to lead the delivery of large-scale Plasmodium falciparum experimental genetics projects. The candidate will collaborate with the PlasmoGEM team and the Sanger Cellular Genetics Pipeline to lead knockout screens of hundreds of genes. The primary objective is to deliver novel scientific projects that result in high impact publications. The successful candidate will be a strong team player, a self-starter and keen to make the most of this exciting opportunity. It would particularly suit postdoctoral fellows with experience in Plasmodium falciparum genetics, who want to lead and take responsibility for a larger project, and work in a deeply collaborative and technologically rapidly moving environment.

Press release: Researchers receive $10.2 million to study new malaria-prevention method

December 11, 2015 - 06:43 -- Ingeborg van Schayk
UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. -- In collaboration with partners in Europe and Africa, researchers at Penn State have received a five-year, $10.2-million grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to investigate a new method for preventing the transmission of malaria. The method involves limiting mosquito access to houses by blocking openings and installing "eave tubes" that contain a unique type of insecticide-laced mosquito netting developed by Dutch partner In2Care that kills the insects as they attempt to enter.
