2020 International Veterinary Vaccinology Network (IVVN) Fellowship Programme for Female Researchers
Deadline: April 9, 2020.
The IVVN and the Canadian government’s International Development Research Centre (IDRC) are funding a fellowship programme for women postdoctoral researchers from low-and-middle income countries (LMICs) which will support their career progression in veterinary vaccinology and accelerate the development of vaccines for livestock and zoonotic diseases.
1. Applicants must be members of the IVVN (free membership is available here)
2. Applicants from LMICs and working at an LMIC-based research organisation are invited to apply (all countries listed here are eligible for funding).
1. Fellowships are available for a duration of 9-11 months, and £50,000 is available per awarded fellowship.
2. The programme will provide an opportunity for the researchers to establish a Mentee/Mentor relationship, which supports the Mentee’s professional development and enables the Mentee to work on a defined piece of research to advance veterinary vaccine development.
Applicants are invited to submit a letter of intent to define the scope of the project and the Mentee/Mentor(s) partnership. If this partnership is not already identified then the letter of intent should be submitted to request assistance with finding a potential Mentor. Letters of intent should be submitted to the IVVN at IVVN@roslin.ed.ac.uk
