Call for 1-Year Clinical Training Fellowships in Global Health Research
We are looking to support outstanding early-career clinical professionals wishing to undertake research, at least in part overseas, to improve the health of people and reduce health inequalities in developed and developing countries. Through the provision of clinical training fellowships in global health, we aim to provide opportunities for the most promising clinical academics, at the very beginning of their careers, to develop bids for independent fellowship funding. Each fellow will be supported by two mentors, one based at an Imperial Campus, and one based overseas. All fellowships must commence by the end of September 2019.
How to apply?
If you have an Imperial and overseas sponsor, please contact ISSF@imperial.ac.uk for guidelines and an application form.
Interested applicants looking for a sponsor?
Please provide a max 500 word summary of your interests, brief summary of project and research experience to ISSF@imperial.ac.uk by 16 January 2019.
We cannot guarantee that all interested applicants will be matched with an overseas sponsor.
Full applications must be submitted by 27 February 2019 to ISSF@imperial.ac.uk.
Interviews for shortlisted candidates are expected to take place 1-3 May 2019.
This Fellowship program is funded through the Global Health Stream of the Wellcome Trust Institutional Strategic Support Fund (www.imperial.ac.uk/research-and-innovation/research-office/funder-information/funding-opportunities/internal-funding-opportunities/issf/), and lead by the Imperial Wellcome Trust Global Health Research Centre in conjunction with the Institute for Global Health Innovation.
