ANTI-VeC: Application of Novel Transgenic technology & Inherited symbionts to Vector Control is a Vector-borne Disease Network awarded to the University of Glasgow, in partnership with Imperial College London. It is funded by the UK government Global Challenges Research Fund (GCRF) which supports research on global issues affecting developing countries, through BBSRC, MRC and NERC. The Network is Co-Directed by Prof Steven Sinkins (CVR) and Prof Andrea Crisanti (Imperial College London).
The Network provides an opportunity to stimulate new lines of research and new collaborations, increase interactions in these emerging fields, and share experiences/expertise – from lab techniques to best practice in running field trials and to expand the links between leading UK scientists and excellent researchers based in disease-endemic countries. This will become a sizable network, involving multiple organisations, from the UK and lower middle income countries.
You will be required to undertake a range of administrative, financial, secretarial and organisational roles for the Network Director and the wider core management team, with direction from the Network Manager.
