Description

The International AIDS Society (IAS), the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), and the French National Agency for Research on AIDS and Viral Hepatitis (ANRS) are pleased to invite researchers to apply for their joint HIV and Drug Use Research Fellowship. The fellowship programme is aimed at contributing to advances in scientific understanding of drug use and HIV while fostering multinational research. This fellowship programme consists of two types of awards: US$75,000 to be awarded to a junior scientist for 18 months of post-doctoral training; and US$75,000 to be awarded to a well-established HIV or drug use researcher for eight months of professional development training. Both take place at leading institutes excelling in research in the HIV-related drug use field. Online applications for the next round will be accepted until 10 February (midnight CET). Mentors have to submit their statement of support through the online system by 18 February (midnight CET). For more information about the fellowship programme, and to apply for the fellowship, please see the contact information below.

Other Criteria

Those eligible for the Post-doctoral training award are junior investigators with a doctoral degree (PhD) obtained no more than six years before the time of application and medical doctors with a MD or equivalent (MBBS) obtained no more than eight years before the time of application. Applicants must hold a doctorate degree or equivalent before the start of the fellowship, but not necessarily when applying. Those eligible for the Professional development training award are well-established HIV or drug use scientists who are not currently active in the field of HIV-related drug use research, with a minimum of seven years of experience beyond post-doctoral level, and with a documented scientific record that includes publishing in peer-reviewed journals. Applications are encouraged from any country. However, as there are numerous national opportunities for research training within the US, applications from US citizens and permanent residents of the US will not be accepted. All applicants must choose a mentor in an institution different from their current institution. Applicants must be able to start their fellowships before June 1. Applications must be completed in English. In terms of the application process, applications for the programme must be submitted by the prospective fellow through the online application form that will be available on the IAS website from 8 December until 10 February (midnight CET). Applicants will be asked to detail their research goals, provide an abstract of their proposed project, and write a research plan for the duration of their fellowship. The research project must be related to HIV and drug use, e.g., narcotics or alcohol.
