Malaria is a parasitic disease endemic in most of the tropical and subtropical ecosystems worldwide and exhibits great geographic diversity. My ongoing research focuses on investigating the mechanisms involved in the maintenance of genetic
polymorphisms in natural populations of malarial parasites in primates (humans and non-human), assessing the evolution of specific proteins involved in the invasion of the host red blood cell, and the phylogeography of macaque malarias.
Applicants should comply with ASU requirements. The student is expected to learn both laboratory and computational skills. Knowledge in evolutionary biology and molecular biology at the level of undergraduate courses is expected. A course in general microbiology is desirable.
The school of Life Sciences in Arizona State University offers several graduate programs; please check the Integrative Graduate Education in the Life Sciences (iGELS) website for details (http://sols. asu.edu/grad/ igels/index. php).
The graduate students at ASU have the opportunity of interacting with faculties from several disciplines. In addition to our diverse community at SOLS (http://sols. asu.edu/index. php), I maintain active collaborations with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (Atlanta, Georgia), the National Primate Research Center at
University of Washington, UC Santa Cruz, and colleagues working in endemic countries.
Assistantships are available conditional to admission in ASU.
