The Kumasi Centre for Collaborative Research (KCCR) is a joint venture of the Ghanaian Ministry of Health, Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST), Kumasi, and Bernhard Nocht Institute for Tropical Medicine (BNITM), Hamburg. KCCR provides a platform for bio-medical research projects jointly conducted by a Ghanaian scientist and an international partner.
In order to promote high-quality research at KCCR, BNITM has launched a programme to establish at KCCR, a Research Group to be led by a Ghanaian scientist in early stage of his/her scientific career. This program aims at advancing the careers of young Ghanaian scientists who plan to return or have returned from training abroad and to support efforts at retaining them in Ghana. The successful candidate should have an excellent track record in Global Health and Infectious Diseases. BNITM and KCCR are equal-opportunity employers.
The Research Group will be equipped with personal emoluments equalling those of a Department head at KNUST, two PhD students and an appropriate budget for consumables and travel, initially for 3 years with the option of extension.
