Research Fellowships at Durham University, UK


GCRF Global Network in Neglected Tropical Diseases


Three Research Fellowships are available at Durham University, as part of a recently funded (£7.8M) GCRF Global Network in Neglected Tropical Diseases (NTDs).

Full details of the Durham Fellowships can be downloaded here.  Two additional Fellows will be recruited at the University of York.

Deadline for Durham applications: midday on 5th October 2018.

This Network, led by the University of Durham, brings together multidisciplinary researchers at 14 global institutions across the UK, South America and South Asia to identify and validate new drug targets for leishmaniasis and Chagas disease.  The Fellows’ research will also align with the research aims of the Network – to identify and validate new drug targets for leishmaniasis and Chagas disease.  Research in the Network spans scientific disciplines and includes molecular and cellular parasitology, chemical biology, biochemistry and biophysics.

The Fellowships are aimed at early-career researchers with some postdoctoral experience (e.g. between 2-6 years) who wish to undertake a period of supported, independent research that complements ongoing work within the GCRF-funded NTD Network at Durham University.

You must identify a Durham sponsor for your application, who will provide scientific guidance both during the application process and throughout your fellowship.  Please see our member profiles for further information on available sponsors at Durham, which include Professors Graham Sandford and Patrick Steel, and Drs Paul Denny, Steven Cobb and Ehmke Pohl.

Your research sponsor will guarantee you access to space and resources to carry out your research. Fellows will also be expected to forge links with Fellows at York and also with global partners within the Network, and help it to meet its aims.

Appointments are for 3 years and come with generous support for consumables, travel and access to a small equipment fund.

For informal enquiries and further information about the opportunities available, along with advice about who would be a suitable sponsor, please contact individuals listed above, or via the project team at ntd.network@durham.ac.uk.
