The Centre for Infectious Disease Epidemiology and Research (CIDER) at the University of Cape Town School of Public Health, in partnership with the Collaborative Initiative for Paediatric HIV Education and Research (CIPHER), is pleased to announce a call for applications for a 15-month postdoctoral research fellowship.
Applications with all required materials must be received by 22 June 2018, 17:00 Central European Time.
The candidate selected for this fellowship will conduct research, including a systematic review of the literature on HIV-exposed uninfected (HEU) child health outcomes. Supervision and mentoring will be by Dr Mary-Ann Davies and the CIPHER HEU project team, which includes Dr Kate Powis and previous CIPHER postdoctoral scholar Dr Amy Slogrove.
The awardee of the CIPHER HIV-Exposed Uninfected Fellowship will be announced at the 4th HIV-Exposed Uninfected Child and Adolescent Workshop to be held on 22 July 2018 as an official pre-conference of the 22nd International AIDS Conference in Amsterdam, the Netherlands.
The selected candidate will be based at CIDER for the fellowship, but professional development activities include a two-month training period with the Department of Epidemiology at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health and a one-month training period at the Botswana Harvard AIDS Institute Partnership. We welcome applications from residents of low- or middle-income countries (LMICs) with a demonstrated commitment to working in a LMIC after the fellowship period.
