Washington University has support from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation for research related to elimination and control programs for lymphatic filariasis, onchocerciasis, and soil transmitted helminth infections (see www.dolf.wustl.edu). We are seeking a postdoctoral fellow to work on development of improved diagnostic tests for these infections and to participate in applied field research projects in Africa and Asia. The successful applicant will have experience in molecular parasitology and applied field research and be able to work with a diverse group of scientists from different disciplines. Although the position will be based in St. Louis, the job requires extensive international travel to developing countries. For this reason, U.S. Citizenship or permanent residency is greatly preferred to facility foreign travel and reentry into the USA. Please reply with your C.V. and a summary of your research interests and career goals to Peter Fischer (email@example.com) or Gary Weil (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Investigators from several DOLF sites met in St. Louis from June 1-2, to plan for new studies that will investigate a novel treatment for lymphatic filariasis.
