The World Health Organization (WHO) intends to expand guidelines development based on systematic reviews and GRADE to malaria vector control. The Cochrane Infectious Diseases Group has contributed to WHO guidelines in malaria chemotherapy and will now extend this to synthesis for vector control. We have an exciting opportunity for 2 research assistants to join the team of international academics to support the ongoing collaboration work. This will include new Cochrane reviews in insecticide residual spraying combined with insecticide impregnated nets, space spraying; updating existing reviews; and developing methods in meta-analysis of entomological outcomes. To support this work we have an exciting opportunity for up to two research assistants to join an international team of dynamic and motivated academics, and build on collaboration between the Centre for Evidence Synthesis in Global Health and the Department of Vector Biology in LSTM. On a daily basis the successful candidate will have the responsibility for completing Cochrane reviews and contributing to the review work of other author teams.
