|Job Description|| |
The Cyprus Institute (CyI) is a non-profit research and educational institution with a strong scientific and technological orientation, emphasizing international collaborations, cross-disciplinary research, innovation, and post graduate education. CyI, through its established research centers, addresses challenging issues that are important at both the regional and international levels. Many of its research activities are being carried out in partnership with leading institutions in the respective thematic areas.
The Cyprus Institute is currently seeking to recruit an Associate Research Scientist to contribute to the development of the Infectious Diseases and Public Health research programme which will be conducted by the Institute. In this role, the successful candidate will work with a team of investigators, researchers and students in establishing a robust experimental, research programme that deals primarily with the spread of vector-borne diseases (VBDs) and their interaction with the environment. They will be contributing to establishing the required laboratory, insectary and other experimental facilities, and to drafting proposals for funding. They will also be involved with planning, performing and supervising research related to the biology, physiology and control of insect vectors, primarily mosquitoes that vector medically relevant arboviruses, and perform and supervise experiments related to the interactions between these vectors and their pathogens.
The research requires field work, mostly vector surveillance and identification, and thus relevant experience is essential. Other areas that the work entails and require relevant experience include rearing and handling of vector species under insectary conditions, experimental manipulation of mosquitoes in laboratory settings, application of molecular techniques to study the biology and physiology of mosquito vectors and evaluation and improvement of vector control strategies.
