Vector Control, Sauver des Vies

Work with us

Research entomologist based in Benin with IVCC partner The London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine.

IVCC is a small, highly focused team working at the interface of science, product development, and innovation delivery and business strategy in an international setting. We play an important part in fighting malaria, and we're good and effective at what we do because of the way we work together.

As well as our own team we fund several other experts through our partners.  The London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine (LSHTM) partner with IVCC through vector control trial sites in Africa. They have a vacancy for an Entomologist.

LSHTM is seeking to appoint a full time Research Assistant or Research Fellow in Medical Entomology to support scientific management of a team involved in the development and evaluation of new tools for malaria vector control, particularly new types of long lasting insecticidal nets, combination nets, and long lasting indoor residual spray formulations for the control of insecticide resistant malaria vectors. The project is based at the LSHTM field site in Cotonou, Benin in collaboration with the Centre de Recherches Entomologiques de Cotonou (CREC). This position is key to the development of the next generation of malaria control tools essential to the eventual elimination of malaria. 

 Working closely with the IVCC Programme Manager in Benin (Dr Corine Ngufor) and Principal Investigator at LSHTM (Prof Mark Rowland), the post-holder will undertake or support a series of product development projects that include phase 1 insecticide testing and phase 2 experimental hut field trials against insecticide resistant mosquito populations. The projects will be supported by grants from the Innovative Vector Control Consortium (IVCC).
