ICGEB is now seeking applicants to head its laboratories in Cape Town, South Africa and New Delhi, India

ICGEB is an intergovernmental organization established in 1987 within the United Nations system, in order to provide the scientific community with a centre of excellence for research and training in genetic engineering and biotechnology to the benefit of developing countries. The Centre, currently supported by 64 Member States, operates through three locations (Component laboratories) in Trieste, Italy, New Delhi, India and Cape Town, South Africa.

DIRECTOR, ICGEB CAPE TOWN COMPONENT

The ICGEB Cape Town Component currently comprises research groups focusing on infectious diseases (HIV, malaria, tuberculosis, trypanosomiasis, leishmaniasis and schistosomiasis) and non-communicable diseases (cancer). Presently located within the University of Cape Town, the Component is expected to expand its activities in the next 3-5 years. Relevant funding, to be provided by the Department of Science and Technology, Government of South Africa, will ensure its gradual expansion, through the establishment of new international research groups.
