Employment & Internship Opportunities

Malaria Elimination Initiative (MEI)

Research Analyst, Vector Control

Req Number: 42128BR

The MEI seeks a candidate with expertise in malaria and strong research, writing and project management skills to join a new team of researchers that will advance understanding on the most effective vector control tools for malaria elimination, specifically on those that go beyond typical interventions such as insecticide-treated bed nets and indoor residual spraying. To achieve the aims of the project, the MEI Vector Control Research Analyst will: 1) lead an in-country case study on multi-vector control and pest management approaches including and beyond that for malaria (location TBD, likely in Asia Pacific); 2) collaborate with country and partner organizations from the Asia Pacific Malaria Elimination Network (APMEN) to conduct research on vectors and vector control interventions in 16 countries in the Asia-Pacific region. Both the case study and the research on vectors and vector control tools in APMEN countries cover topics that are currently not well defined or well documented and which there is no scientific or global policy consensus; therefore the research will require significant ingenuity to draw an anecdotal evidence, incomplete data and grey or unpublished literature, and consultations with international experts and national malaria program managers, all in a short period of time. The Research Analyst will also provide meeting coordination support to the Senior Program Manager, Vector Control, with planning and executing advisory group meetings for the project.

Research Analyst, Vector Control

Req Number: 42126BR

The MEI seeks a candidate with expertise in malaria and strong research, writing and project management skills to join a new team of researchers that will advance understanding on the most effective vector control tools for malaria elimination, specifically on those that go beyond typical interventions such as insecticide-treated bed nets and indoor residual spraying. To achieve the aims of the project, the MEI Vector Control Research Analyst will: 1) lead a robust review of past, present, and future malaria vector control approaches and their effect, or potential effect, on transmission, and 2) lead an in-country case study on multi-vector control and pest management approaches and their impact (location TBD). Both the review and case study are on topics that are currently not well defined or well documented and which there is no scientific or global policy consensus; therefore the research will require significant ingenuity to draw an anecdotal evidence, incomplete data and grey or unpublished literature, and consultations with international experts, all in a short period of time. The Research Analyst will also lead background research on priority projects that emerge for the Vector Control teams, and support the development of funding proposals for additional project support.

The Research Analyst will report to the MEI Program Coordinator, Vector Control. The role requires approximately 20% international travel.
