The Coalition against Typhoid Secretariat is currently accepting applications for the position of Senior Technical Officer. The Senior Technical Officer will be instrumental in managing the execution of a new three-year grant to conduct enteric fever surveillance in Asia.
This grant supports the creation of a regional enteric fever surveillance network that will enable the systematic collection of data on enteric fever incidence, mortality, complications (intestinal perforation, etc.), hospitalization rates, and clinical outcome differences between drug-sensitive and drug-resistant Salmonella Typhi (S. Typhi) and Salmonella Paratyhi (S. Paratyphi) to fill the knowledge gaps related to the population impact of enteric fever. The surveillance network will cover five countries (Bangladesh, India, Indonesia, Nepal and Pakistan), and will be carried out in two phases over a period of three years.
The incumbent will provide guidance for project related activities in close coordination with the Program Director and other project partners. The Senior Technical Officer will participate in protocol and project implementation plan development and management, and will be responsible for ensuring that the technical aspects of the project function efficiently and that the project remains in compliance with grant requirements and meets grant milestone deadlines.
