Malawi-Liverpool-Wellcome Clinical Research Programme Call for Research Training proposals

The Malawi-Liverpool-Wellcome Trust Programme (MLW) is an affiliate of the College of Medicine internationally recognised for research and research training led by Malawian & International Scientists, improving the health of people in Malawi and elsewhere in the Region (http://www.mlw.medcol.mw). MLW has a unique translational research portfolio that links an excellent laboratory research base to strong hospital and community-based research teams. The MLW Research Strategy is built on 8 major groups, several of which have sub-groups.  The Groups are:

•    Behaviour and Health
•    Microbial Ecology
•    HIV and TB
•    Mucosal Immunology
•    Lung Health
•    Salmonella and Enteric infections
•    Malaria -epidemiology, parasitology and immunology.

The MLW Training Fund has funding available to support a range of different academic opportunities at intern, PhD or post-doctoral level in both clinical, laboratory, epidemiological and operations research.  There is flexibility in how these funds can be used based on the circumstances of the researcher, the strategic link to the aims of the Research Group and the support given to the application by the College of Medicine.  The aim is to find the best opportunities to support talented researchers working in research at MLW.

The awards are available to any African researcher although priority may be given to Southern and East African researchers.

Please send an application letter (detailing your suitability for the scholarship) and a one page statement, stating your motivation and future career ambitions, full CV together with your photocopied certificates.  You will need explicit support from the Research Group with which you intend to work.  Group contact details can be obtained from This email address is being protected from spambots.
