An Assistant Professor to develop a value proposition for the development and first use of GBS (group B Strep) vaccines.
The Maternal and Newborn Group within the Faculty of Epidemiology and Population Health, linked to the MARCH Centre at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine (LSHTM) is seeking to appoint an Assistant Professor.
As Assistant Professor, the post holder will be responsible for developing an international research portfolio towards a comprehensive value proposition for the development and first use of GBS (group B Streptococcus) vaccination. The proposition will be on the basis of a thorough assessment of the burden of disease and economic impact of GBS, and the costs and gains that can be expected through vaccination. This programme of work is expected to spur investments into the full development of candidate vaccines, and inform the public health community on the key aspects of further R&D, as well as implementing and tracking progress in routine programmes. With close links to key stakeholders such as the World Health Organization and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, the work has a high probability of having major impact on maternal and child mortality globally.
