IVVN Fellowship Programme

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.

Fellowships are available for a duration of 9-11 months, and £50,000 is available per awarded fellowship. 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 [at] roslin [dot] ed [dot] ac [dot] uk by 9am on 9 April 2020. Please ensure you have read the IVVN Fellowship Guidance Notes for details of eligibility and further information about the fellowship programme before submitting the letter of intent.

Applicants must be members of the IVVN (free membership is available here) and applicants from LMICs and working at an LMIC-based research organisation are invited to apply (all countries listed here are eligible for funding).

For any queries regarding the programme, please email Dr Carly Hamilton at IVVN [at] roslin [dot] ed [dot] ac [dot] uk.
