Senior Epidemiologist, TB Detection

Despite all efforts to control Tuberculosis (TB), increasing the detection rate of TB patients remains one of the main challenges to fight this fast spreading disease. Many Sub-Saharan African countries are in the list of the high TB burden countries (WHO, 2012). In many of these countries, the TB detection rate is below 50%. Poor diagnostic services are a primary contributor to this problem. To combat this pandemic, APOPO developed a unique diagnostic technology, based on the olfactory capacity of trained giant African Pouched rats. This technology is currently used in routine care in Tanzania and Mozambique, but additional scientific evidence is needed in order to get endorsed by the World Health Organization. To lead the organization towards endorsement, APOPO is seeking for a senior epidemiologist with an excellent track record in TB research. The position is based in Morogoro, Tanzania and requires travel to Mozambique and participation in conferences and meetings worldwide.
