Applications open for 2 postdoctoral fellowship opportunities in global health

Posted by on Friday, August 28, 2020 in Announcements .

Do you want to build a career in global health research? A year of research training in a low- or middle-income country (LMIC) can be foundational for such a career. Applications for the Vanderbilt-Emory-Cornell-Duke (VECD) Fogarty Global Health Fellowship 2021-2022 cohort are now open.  This outstanding program offers a year-abroad opportunity for US and LMIC postdocs and doctoral students to develop research skills in a global health research setting. The entire spectrum of science is possible and relevant in LMIC settings, including basic, clinical, translational, population, and implementation science. Applicants must work with mentors to develop and propose a research project. The VECD application deadline is November 2, 2020.

Additionally, the Fulbright-Fogarty Fellowship Program is accepting applications for the 2021-2022 academic year. Fellowships are open to students who are currently enrolled in medical school or a doctoral program and are citizens or nationals of the U.S. The Fulbright-Fogarty program specifies countries and engages students in ongoing research projects (applicants do not have to design or propose a project). The countries included this year are Vietnam, Jamaica, Peru, Ethiopia, Ghana, Malawi, and Uganda. More details, including information about the application process, timelines, and projects and sites available can be found at the Fulbright-Fogarty website linked above. The Fulbright-Fogarty application deadline is October 13, 2020.

You can learn more about these programs in a Vanderbilt Institute for Global Health webinar on September 22 at 8:00 am. Register for the webinar here:
