AMIS 2023 PHD Program in Malaria Modelling

MaModAfrica Consortium, will offer eight fully funded PhD positions in this prestigious new doctoral program. Most of the recruited students will be based in our three focus countries (Rwanda, Benin, and Mozambique) in partnership with universities and research institutions across Africa and globally. The program aims to train future African modelers, who will have an impact across academia, industry, education, and government. 

This transdisciplinary program will focus on state-of-the-art modeling approaches driven by real-world questions in public health to reduce the burden of Malaria in Africa. It is built on the understanding that impactful approaches in Malaria modeling require technical expertise (e.g., mathematics, statistics, computation, and data science), the ability to formalize problems coming from experimental fields (e.g., parasitology, entomology, public health, and epidemiology) and communicate efficiently on the modeling process and the models with NMCPs.
