The West Africa mathematical Modeling Capacity Development (WAMCAD): an Anglophone-francophone-lusophone partnership, a program based at the Department of Medical Microbiology of the University of Ghana Medical School, through a grant from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation on Disease Modeling,

is pleased to announce opportunities for junior faculties, postdoctoral research fellows and PhD students. The objective of this programme is to enhance technical capacity development in malaria and NTD modelling through a multi-track training programme.

We are looking for self-motivated individuals who could explore the potential of using mathematical modelling to support disease control programmes.

Candidates will work on studies under the supervision of local and international mentors to develop statistical, mathematical and/or computational models, apply this to malaria datasets and interpret the results with the aim of supporting efforts to control malaria and NTDs.

The studentship is funded for 1-3 years depending on the track. Junior faculties and postdocs will be offered 1–2-year funding. During this period, you will participate in relevant group meetings, conferences,

workshops and seminars; and you will communicate your findings through publications in peer-reviewed journals. There are several positions available. Trainees will undertake projects that include but are not limited to:

a. Understanding changes in malaria/NTD transmission due to interventions and ecological changes

b. Using models to identify methods to improve intervention for malaria and NTDs

c. Impact of insecticide resistance in mosquitoes on malaria/NTD transmission

d. Urban malaria transmission and control

e. The effect of climate on malaria/NTD incidence and spread in different ecological zones of Ghana
