International Junior Research Fellowships (Neglected Tropical Diseases), Centre for Global Infectious Diseases – Durham University

The Durham Centre for Global Infectious Diseases is seeking applications for the JRF scheme in research areas that relate to Neglected Tropical Diseases (NTDs). We would particular welcome applications from researchers that have an interest in working on leishmaniasis and Chagas disease across the interface between chemistry and biology. The JRF scheme is aimed at researchers with post-doctoral experience (typically 2-3 years), but recent doctorands of exceptional ability and researchers who have followed non-traditional academic career paths (such as in public corporations, NGOs or industry) are also encouraged to apply.

Closing date 4/11/17.  For full details see advert: International JRF_Durham.
