UPDATED 27 November 2017

I have started compiling this list of job opportunities involving parasitology, parasite ecology, epidemiology, etc. If you know of a relevant job that should be added to the list, you can post it in the comments or send it via email to dinoverm (@) gmail.com.

And if you’d like some parasite ecology job advice, check out the posts that I look to at the bottom of this page.
