CAPRISA, UKZN & MRC Flagship


PhD Fellowship II: Genomics, Bioinformatics, Epidemioloy and Phylogenetics

CAPRISA, UKZN & MRC Flagship - 2016-08-23

The Professional Development Programme (PDP) at CAPRISA aims to develop and retain South African scientists and professionals of the highest calibre. The genomics and bioinformatics project in HIV-1 phylogenetics and molecular epidemiology is inter-disciplinary in nature and involves collaboration between the CAPRISA's MRC HIV-TB Pathogenesis and Treatment Research Unit and the Flagship Program of the MRC, which are two of the most prestigious research programs in South Africa.


Mentors:

Prof. Tulio de Oliveira: Research Associate CAPRISA, Professor UKZN

Prof. Ayesha Kharsany: Senior Scientist, CAPRISA

This PhD project aims to generate HIV genomic data and apply molecular epidemiology techniques to describe the characteristics of HIV transmission and drug resistance networks in the study population. These results will be combined with detailed demographic information in order to identify patterns of inter- and intra-community transmission of HIV in the study population.

The PhD fellow will be awarded a fellowship stipend of ZAR 180,000 per annum. Applications are invited from South African or permanent resident students. Please submit a CV and a letter of motivation (max. 500 words) by 20 October 2016 to sma.mzobe@caprisa.org
