Through the creation of effective links with governments, NGOs, private organisations and global institutions and by responding to the health needs of communities, LSTM aims to promote improved health, particularly for people ofthe less developed/resource poorest countries in the tropics and sub-tropics.
The Centre for Snakebite Research and Interventions (CSRI) at LSTM is at the forefront of research to develop the next generation of snakebite therapies. The intent is to develop therapies with unparalleled efficacy, affordability and safety - to substantially and sustainably reduce the high rates of deaths and disability that currently afflict snakebite victims throughout the world.

You will have a strong andinformed desire to join our research team, share work load and to contribute productively to our various scientific, educational and public engagement activities. We are looking for a Clinical Lecturer who has an intelligent, diligent, helpful and energetic approach to all aspects of the project.
