Masters programme in Malaria Modelling by AIMS

Applications are welcome for the African Institute of Mathematical Science Research (AMIS) Masters programme in Malaria Modelling.

The programme is delivered by the AIMS-led MaModAfrica consortium, which comprises over 20 institutional collaborators, including the National Malaria Control Programmes (NMCPs) and ministries of health in four African countries. The programme provides training that spans mathematical and biological foundations Theoretical applications and practical experience in addressing a defined public health priority within an appropriate practice setting.

This master’s program not only equips students with advanced skills in applied infectious disease modelling but also fosters a collaborative, transnational approach, ensuring that graduates contribute effectively to the global fight against malaria, with the following key objectives:

  • Increase Academic Training in Malaria Modelling
  • Create a collaborative Ecosystem
  • Bridging the Gap Between Academic Modeling and Operational Needs

The following Courses The courses offered during the Applied Infectious Disease Modeling at AIMS include:

  • Computing, R programming
  • Modelling of deterministic and stochastic dynamical systems
  • Infectious diseases, malaria, and vectors: Biology perspective
  • Statistical inference, model fitting, and geospatial modelling
  • Malaria data science
  • Malaria modelling
  • Advanced Infectious disease modelling
  • Malaria Diagnostics, Drugs and Vaccines
  • Practical with Open Malaria and applied modelling
  • Health systems, Policy, Economics and Surveillance
  • Genomics and Bioinformatics
  • Statistical regression with R


  • Full or partial scholarships will be awarded to all accepted students. 
  • Selected applicants may apply for bursaries covering tuition and accommodation costs. 


  • Open to all African Countries
  • Applicants must hold or expect to obtain by the date of commencement of AIMS training a 4-year university degree in mathematics or any other science/engineering discipline with a significant mathematics component.
  • Candidate records must demonstrate strong mathematics, leadership, and community service skills.
