[Description of the institution ]
At the Department of Vector Ecology and Environment, Institute of Tropical Medicine, Nagasaki University, we are conducting multifaceted research on the causes and control methods of vector-borne diseases, especially through basic research on pathogen-borne animals and analysis of their environment. Our research covers a wide range of topics, from molecular genetics (population genetic analysis and phylogenetic analysis) to ecology, especially for malaria and dengue virus vector mosquitoes. In the field of vector control, we aim to establish environmentally harmonious strategies.
Our department is conducting research on emerging and reemerging infectious diseases in the Socialist Republic of Vietnam under the AMED (Japan Agency for Medical Research and Development) program. We are looking for a researcher who will be stationed at the Nagasaki University Vietnam Research Station in Hanoi to promote research on vector ecology.
