BugBitten began in October 2013 as a blog for the parasite and vector- borne diseases community; hosted by Parasites and Vectors.
The blogs we post highlight and discuss the major developments in our field and provide a forum where expert opinions can be sought and educational advice provided. Many of the posting also aim to be of interest to a wider audience and provide some background information on the topic of the blog.
The editors are a small, friendly team who write BugBitten blogs regularly, edit and suggest improvements to blogs before they are published, suggest new topics and recruit guest bloggers.
Our blog is becoming very successful and we are now planning to recruit two additional editors.
If you would like to be considered as an editor and are prepared to contribute a blog every couple of months please get in touch with us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
