We are looking for a Research Engineer for in vivo malaria model

Join a young and dynamic team at MIMS under the lead of an internationally recognized, excellent malaria researcher!

We study the mosquito transmission of malaria parasites in a rodent model. The project forms part of a major effort funded by the European Research Council to systematically identify parasite gene functions in malaria transmission. You will work with different members of the team to provide specialized support for work with our rodent malaria transmission model, including the breeding and dissection of mosquitoes, infection of cultured cells and maintaining parasites in mice and rats. You will also provide general laboratory management. The work will be made under supervision of the group leader.
