The IRTG2290 is a joint Australian-German PhD program on Malaria research offering research-oriented education and career development resources. It is an interdisciplinary research union bringing together scientists from Biology, Computation and Medicine in order to tackle the challenges in malaria research. We aim at training independent, innovative and interdisciplinary young scientists equipped with state-of-the-art technical and analytical skills as well as with professional competency and networks in order to become global players in their field.
The IRTG2290 was inaugurated in 2017 and is now seeking talented and highly motivated young scientists to be part of the 2nd cohort starting an exciting and interdisciplinary project in one of the program’s research areas:
1. Nutrient uptake and metabolism
2. Parasite genetics and adaptations
3. Immune responses
4. Host genetics and Responses
The IRTG2290 unites research groups from the ANU, the HU, the Charité – University Medicine and the Robert Koch Institute (RKI). In Berlin, the IRTG2290 is integrated in the Integrative Research Institute for Life Sciences (IRI-LS) and is embedded in a strong scientific landscape.
