Job opportunity for PDRA(s) at CIIE

CIIE is currently looking to attract dynamic and enthusiastic researchers, eager to operate at the interface between disciplines (e.g. infection biology, immunology, evolutionary biology, ecology, epidemiology and mathematical modelling) to create new research paradigms to tackle infectious diseases.

With the recent success in funding applications by our current CIIE PDRAs, we now have the opportunity to support 1 or 2 additional CIIE PDRAs for up to 12 months (i.e. until early 2017).

CIIE is hosted within the Institute for Immunology and Infection Research and Institute for Evolutionary Biology, these being part of the Edinburgh Infectious Disease research community, one of the largest groups of infection biologists world-wide. Together with our host Institutes, we will also welcome inquiries from researchers holding, or interested in applying for, externally-funded independent research fellowships in the area of interdisciplinary infection research. CIIE will also be hosting new 4 year WT PhD Programme: Hosts, Pathogens and Global Health.

Application should be made via University website (vacancy ref no 035280).

Informal enquiries may be made to the Centre Manager, Ms Kasia Kokowska (
