National Malaria Control Program (NMCP) Of Papua New Guinea

In Collaboration With Rotarians Against Malaria (RAM)

Advertisement For IRS Specialist To Support PNG Malaria Program

18 July 2020

Papua New Guinea (PNG) has probably the highest malaria prevalence in the world outside of Africa. In response to this, during the malaria eradication in the 1960’s, PNG had an extensive Indoor Residual house Spraying (IRS) program. However, for many reasons, this was abandoned in 1985 and there has been no substantive indoor house spraying response since this time. However, there has been some small IRS campaigns in response to malaria outbreaks but none in the last ten years which leave PNG without any trained personnel either at management of field level with experience in IRS. Where older staff who did IRS still exist, they would be in urgent need to re-training.

PNG is looking for a qualified expert(s) in IRS on a short term contract, to capacitate the Malaria Program of PNG to re-introduce IRS into the country and train senior staff to manage an IRS program for the coming years. This would be to carry out spray programs in selected areas but also to respond to malaria outbreaks.

The required person would have extensive experience in IRS and in training staff in the field. They should also be familiar with international norms in terms of training of spray operators and have managed IRS programs.

The National Malaria Control Program is looking for proposals of how this can be best done. This would include actually training spray operators in PNG and also training senior staff in actual logistics to carry out campaigns in the field.

Proposals are invited from suitably qualified experts with many years of experience to bid for the following components.

  • Based on existing documents, draw up an IRS policy and strategy documents for PNG
  • Write an IRS program guideline document specifically for PNG
  • Based on existing IRS international training curriculums, draw up a training program for IRS in PNG and also produce associated training materials on IRS.
  • Train senior managers how to manage an IRS program and also conduct a ToT training based on actual training that would be done in the field for field spray operators (This could be done together with training spray operators).
  • Produce a final report

It is proposed that this work would be carried out between September and November 2020.

If you are interested, or need further information, please contact Tim Freeman of Rotarians Against Malaria on rampm@rampng.org.

2 fully-funded PhD positions in phylogeography and systematics of Australian dung beetles. 

The Cleveland Museum of Natural History (CMNH) invites applications for two 5-year PhD positions in evolutionary biology. Graduate students will be enrolled in the Biology Department at Case Western Reserve University (CWRU) but primarily be based in the Department of Invertebrate Zoology at CMNH.

The graduate students will work under the supervision of Dr Nicole Gunter and will participate in an NSF funded project that investigates evolutionary history of Australian dung beetles to gain a better understanding of species distribution. Graduate students will conduct independent research on the evolution and biogeography of Australian dung beetles combining niche modelling, systematics and phylogenetic research on one of the two biogeographically distinct lineages.

Position 1: Northern Miocene element comprised of the cosmopolitan genus Onthophagus. This project will have a greater focus on colonization history, diversification and adaptation on the Australian continent.

Position 2: Southern Gondwanan element comprised of genera from Australasian endemic clade. This project will have a greater focus on systematics, ecological niche modelling and influence of habitat fragmentation on diversification.

By reconstructing the phylogeographic history of this model system, students will explore the heritability of environmental tolerance and its influence on species distribution and diversification. The research will include training in integrative systematics, molecular phylogenetics and ecological niche modelling and will involve international travel including field work, recuration of museum collections and collaboration. The projects involve remote field work in Australia so prior field experience is an asset, and an international passport will be required.

The successful candidates will be highly motivated and independent, have research experience and a strong academic record in evolutionary biology, entomology or ecology, a MSc in one of these field is preferred. Experience in systematics, phylogenomics or niche modelling is a plus but not essential.
If you are interested, you need to apply to posted advertisement on the Cleveland Museum of Natural History website (Requisition ID: 1104 Research Assistant I). Applications will include a CV, a 1 page cover letter, research experience and area of interest, and the names of two potential references.

Only 1 application is necessary if you are interested in both positions, please indicate a project if you have a strong preference. Preferred starting date Fall Semester 2020, interviews with selected candidates will be conducted as soon as possible. 

Successful applicants will then be required enroll to the Department of Biology graduate degree program at Case Western Reserve University. Additional information can be also found in the Biology Department website (https://biology.case.edu/graduate/admission/) but please note there will be exemption to the normal application deadline. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any other questions about the positions. Cheers,Nicole
