Wednesday, September 02, 2015.

Editor-in-Chief of Parasites & Vectors - August 2015

Parasites & Vectors wishes to announce that our founding Editor-in-Chief, Professor Chris Arme, will be stepping down from his role at the end of 2015. Professor Arme has built Parasites & Vectors into the premier open access journal for the international parasitology community and at BioMed Central, we are extremely grateful to him for his tireless work.

We therefore seek a new Editor-in-Chief to direct the journal in its next phase of development and to build on Professor Arme’s achievements.

The successful candidate will have a broad interest in parasitology and vector biology, extensive editorial experience, and a clear strategic vision for Parasites & Vectors.  The new Editor-in-Chief will handle a large number of manuscripts as well as support the journal’s Section Editors, and take a lead on journal policy and acceptance threshold. The Editor-in-Chief role also requires sound knowledge of ethics and policies in publishing and science, although full training and support will be provided.

Parasites & Vectors has a strong history of building relationships with research networks, the general public, NGOs, industry and governmental organisations; BioMed Central seeks a new Editor-in-Chief with commensurate experience to continue this mission.

Parasites & Vectors is an international journal with a global author base and readership; BioMed Central welcomes applications from the international parasitology and vector biology communities.

The initial term for this position will be 5 years. Shortlisted candidates will be interviewed in September and the successful applicant will begin on 1st January 2016, after training for 1-2 months with Professor Arme.

Interested applicants should submit curriculum vitae / resume and a brief vision for the future development of the journal to srimathy.sriskantharajah@biomedcentral.com. Any questions regarding this role can also be submitted to the same address. The deadline for applications is 7th September 2015.

New "One Health" Master of Public Health (MPH) training program: Occupational Health at the Human-Animal Interface

Occupational Health at the Human-Animal Interface MPH Training Program  

The Occupational Health at the Human-Animal Interface (OHHAI) training program is based at the UW Center for One Health Research (COHR). The OHHAI training program promotes a "One Health" approach to the current lack of adequate research and best practices regarding the occupational health of animal workers. Animal workers interact with animals in a wide range of settings ranging from veterinary clinics to research laboratories, farms, markets, zoos, aquariums, and wildlife environments. They face unique and important health issues including exposure to zoonotic infectious diseases, allergens, and injury risks. Students in the OHHAI training program will satisfy the requirements for an MPH in Environmental and Occupational Health Sciences. The curriculum also includes a seminar in the occupational health of animal workers, a One Health survey course, an original research thesis and a practicum experience. Potential practicum sites include zoos, farms, veterinary hospitals, animal research laboratories, department of agriculture, farmworker clinics, and wildlife health organizations, both in the US and internationally. A limited number of scholarships including tuition support and stipend are available on a merit basis. The OHHAI training program is funded by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) through the UW Northwest Center for Occupational Health and Safety (NWCOHS).

For more information about the Training Program contact Vickie Ramirez at ramirezv@uw.edu.
