July 22, 2016 - 10:35 -- Ingeborg van Schayk

APMEN positions

Two interesting and exciting positions are opening up at the newly established APMEN office in Singapore. One for the position of Director, the other for Program Manager. Make sure you apply before July 29! Follow this link to find out more.

Head Scientist in Mosquito Ecology and Genetics

A very interesting position has become available in a Bill and Melinda Gates funded project in Perugia, Italy. Click here for more information.

Chicken in the basket

Sometimes funny yet intriguing results come forward from research activities in the field of malaria. Surely, if you manage to repel malaria mosquitoes from the house by having a chicken next to your bednet, than that deserves attention. This was reported in the Malaria Journal from a study conducted in Ethiopia. Here we consider the work Ig Nobel Prize worthy! 

Enjoy this week's MalariaWorld - the MW team

and we look forward to receiving your manuscripts for the MalariaWorld Journal!
