Pediatric Infectious Diseases Society Fellowship Award
Completed applications for the Pediatric Infectious Diseases Society Fellowship Award must be received by March 7, 2014 for the award cycle that begins on July 1, 2014.
Goals: The goal of the Fellowship Awards is to help increase the pool of highly trained pediatric infectious disease clinical scientists and to stimulate scholarly basic and clinical research in the following areas pertinent to pediatrics: public health/epidemiology, hospital epidemiology, clinical trials of antimicrobials, outcomes research, pharmacokinetics, pathophysiology, molecular pathogenesis, research related to vaccine development, and other topics of relevance to pediatric infectious diseases.
NOTE: The Society encourages applications for clinically applied/translational research.
Eligibility: Candidates must possess a MD or MD/PhD and be at least a first-year fellow in a Pediatric Infectious Diseases program in North America at the time of application. The award will be given for two subsequent years of training, during which time the applicant is expected to devote the major portion (at least 75% of time) of those years conducting the proposed research project under the direct supervision of a mentor who must be a PIDS member in good standing for at least one year.
Support: The annual stipend will be $45,000 and will be given for two years, subject to review at the end of the first year. In the case of awards given to a candidate in the final year of fellowship, only one year of the award will be given to the recipient. The stipend is intended to provide salary and benefits for the fellow. It is not intended to provide resources for a division's research program, nor to pay indirect costs of the institution.
Application and Selection Process: Application materials must be received by 5:00 pm EST on Friday, March 7, 2014. Electronic submission is strongly preferred.
Rockefeller University Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship Program
The Rockefeller University Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship (SURF) program provides a unique opportunity for undergraduates to conduct laboratory research. SURF students work with leading scientists in a broad range of areas including biochemistry; structural biology and chemistry; molecular, cell and developmental biology; immunology; virology and microbiology; neuroscience; physics; and mathematical biology.
The program is designed to provide qualified, highly motivated college students majoring in the life or physical sciences, an opportunity to experience laboratory research. Each year, outstanding college sophomores and juniors are chosen from a large pool of applicants. SURF students are matched according to their stated field of interest with faculty, postdoctoral researchers or graduate students. These mentors volunteer to help design and supervise individualized summer projects for their students. The 18 students accepted into the SURF program will receive a stipend of $4,000.00 for the 10-week period of June 2 through August 8, 2014. Free housing will be provided for students who cannot commute.
Applicants to the SURF Program must submit:
The completed on-line application form.
A two-page summary statement describing the applicant's academic background, scientific interests, research experience (if any) and career goals. Applicants should discuss how they would benefit from the SURF Program.
An official transcript (sealed by the university registrar).
Two letters of recommendation preferably from professors or mentors who can evaluate the applicant based on performance in current or completed research projects. (These letters are critical for our selection process). Letters of recommendation should be submitted online. If letters of recommendation are not submitted online, they must be mailed in separate sealed envelopes, signed across the seal, to the address below.
Any documents not submitted online should be mailed to:
Office of Graduate Studies
The Rockefeller University
1230 York Avenue, Box 177
New York, NY 10065-6399
Applications must be submitted no later than February 1, 2014. Completed applications will be reviewed in the order they are received. Final decisions will be made by mid-March 2014. It is imperative that applicants provide contact information for the first two weeks of March.
SURF applicants should state a preference for working in particular laboratories or areas of research; however, we cannot guarantee that specific preferences will be met. For a listing of faculty members and a brief description of their research, we encourage you to obtain further in-depth information by viewing the Rockefeller Web site at http://www.rockefeller.edu/research/. Please be advised that placement in laboratories is centralized through the Dean's Office. Students are neither expected nor encouraged to secure their own lab arrangements.
Swiss Society for Infectious Diseases/International Society for Infectious Diseases Fellowships
ISID and the Swiss Society for Infectious Diseases (SSI) jointly sponsor the SSI/ISID Infectious Diseases Research Fellowship Program.
The purpose of this Fellowship Program is to support infectious disease physicians and scientists from developing and middle income countries through multidisciplinary clinical and laboratory training at select biomedical institutions in Switzerland. The objectives of the Fellowship Program are:
• to train promising young physicians and scientists from developing and middle income countries for clinical and research positions in infectious diseases
• to foster partnerships between Fellows and infectious disease leaders in Switzerland
• to increase scientific research capacity in low income/high disease burden countries
Opportunities for training and research in a variety of areas ranging from basic studies of the mechanism of disease to studies in public health, epidemiology, diagnostics, therapeutics or vaccine development, are available through this program.
The term of the Fellowship is for one year. The start date of the will be determined by arrangement between the host institution and the Fellow.
A financial stipend of up to 36,000 SF per year (approximately $35,500 USD) will be given to Fellows to cover travel costs and living expenses. The program intends to award two fellowships every year.
IMPORTANT NOTICE: Language skills of French or German are necessary according to the institution chosen (German for Basel, Bern, Zurich and St. Gallen; French for Geneva and Lausanne). Please indicate in your application your speaking and writing proficiency of these languages and of English.
SSI/ISID Fellows will be placed at one of six collaborating research centers in Switzerland according to technical interests and skills. All infectious diseases programs at each institution offer experience in clinical infectious diseases, including HIV, and microbiology.
The program is open to applicants who are citizens or permanent residents of developing countries or Eastern Europe. Applicants should have a M.D. or a Ph.D in a relevant field and should hold a position at a medical, research, or public health institution. An endorsement by the home institution is required for participation in the program.
Applications will be reviewed by a joint SSI and ISID committee. Selection will be based on the applicant's academic potential, career plans, previous clinical/research experience, letters of reference, and relevance of training to home institution and home country. Personal interviews will be arranged with selected applicants as the final step in the application process.
The annual application deadline for Fellowship applications is 1 April. All applicants will be notified of the outcome of their application by 1 July.
