The Kenya Medical Research Institute/Centre for Global Health Research (KEMRI/CGHR), the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine (LSTM) are collaborating to conduct research on malaria, HIV, TB and other diseases of public health importance. An exciting opportunity is currently open for an Assistant Research Officer (ARO) within the Program.
The candidate will work on a project “Research to Policy in Africa: Evidence synthesis for building the translation pipeline to eliminate infectious diseases”. The project aims to build local capacity for evidence synthesis, translating research evidence into policy and for making evidence-informed decisions for controlling or eliminating infectious diseases. Using HIV, Tuberculosis and Malaria as examples, we will use evidence synthesis from different research and knowledge sources to inform technical policy, programmatic guidance and to inform optimum implementation and revisions to existing policies.
