Tell Me About Award:

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.

What about Eligible Field(s) of Study?

Candidates can choose from a list of proposed research topics, and MaModAfrica Consortium will assist in building a supervision team around these topics. Alternatively, candidates can suggest their own research topics, together with a proposed supervision team. Depending on the topic, candidates will enroll in appropriate graduate programs of our partner universities. Selected students start in October 2023.
