CHAI’s global malaria program provides direct technical and operational support to countries around the globe to strengthen their malaria programs and reduce the burden of this preventable, treatable disease. We support governments to scale up effective interventions for prevention, diagnosis, treatment, and surveillance, with the goals of sustainably reducing the number of malaria-related illnesses and deaths worldwide in the short-term and accelerating progress towards malaria elimination in the long term.
Countries in the Greater Mekong Sub-Region (GMS) are progressing towards malaria elimination, and their malaria programs will need to rapidly detect and effectively treat infections, map areas where malaria transmission persists, and tailor and target intervention packages according to local contexts. CHAI is working to help malaria programs across the region achieve their ambitious goals by providing operational and technical support to strengthen surveillance systems, improve evidence-based planning, better manage programs, and coordinate activities regionally.
Overview of Role:
CHAI is seeking a highly motivated individual with strong public health experience and analytical skills to serve as an epidemiologist and technical advisor to its teams across the GMS. This role offers a unique opportunity for a talented individual to apply epidemiological and analytical skills to guide the operations of a cross-country disease elimination program. The successful candidate will lead a small team of epidemiologists working directly with government counterparts to assess, design, and scale-up disease surveillance systems; conduct robust data analysis; and monitor and evaluate the success of ongoing efforts to achieve malaria elimination. The individual will collaborate with a diverse team of CHAI staff based across multiple countries (primarily but not exclusively in Vietnam, Myanmar, Cambodia, and Laos, India, and Papua New Guinea), government programs, academics and public health agencies. The successful candidate will possess strong communication, organizational, and management skills; work independently to drive implementation; have the potential to grow into a global health leader; and have deep personal commitment to producing results.
CHAI places great value on relevant personal qualities including resourcefulness, tenacity, independence, patience, humility, and strong work ethic.
