Opportunities for undergraduate, graduate and postdoctoral training
We have a diversity of projects, spanning mosquito physiology, pathogen transmission, infection and immunity in mammalian host models, and studies that combine all of these aspects of pathogen biology in malaria.
The University of Idaho (UI) has a rich research environment that is well-suited for interdisciplinary studies in disease ecology, entomology, and vector-borne diseases. It is a high research activity, land-grant institution committed to undergraduate and graduate education and also supports the delivery of the medical and veterinary education programs for the state of Idaho.
The UI is located in close proximity to Washington State University (WSU) and the Paul Allen School of Global Animal Health (6 miles away), the USDA Animal Disease Research Unit (with vector research on the UI campus and other facilities 6 miles away), and within 4-5h drive of the NIH Rocky Mountain Labs in Hamilton, Montana, providing a rich environment for intellectual interactions in vector-borne diseases.
Furthermore, UI and WSU students and trainees benefit from courses and participatory seminars that can be taken for credit on these sister campuses, with a tradition of many courses co-taught by UI and WSU faculty.

The University of Idaho is located on the homelands of the Nimiipuu (Nez Perce), Palus (Palouse) and Schitsu’umsh (Coeur d’Alene) tribes. We extend gratitude to the indigenous people that call this place home, since time immemorial. UI recognizes that it is our academic responsibility to build relationships with the indigenous people to ensure integrity of tribal voices.
