International AIDS Society (IAS) HIV Research Trust 2014 Scholarships - Applications Open 1st September 2013

This year the IAS is again working with the UK-based HIV Research Trust to promote their 2014 awards for research training Scholarships. These Scholarships are for physicians, nurses, scientists and other health care professionals who are undertaking research in resource poor settings. The award is used to develop a candidate's career and, on return to the home institution, add to the capacity of their department to carry out research related to treatment and prevention.

All aspects of research related to HIV infection and its consequences are eligible for support. Examples of acquired skills are; clinical
management, clinical trial experience and practice, data and trial management, statistical expertise, acquisition of laboratory techniques and analyses, cell and molecular biology. We encourage research applications concerning psychological, ethical, economic, educational and societal aspects of HIV infection.

The Scholarships provide support for travel, living expenses including accommodation and may provide support for the laboratory expenses at the institution to be visited. The preference is for applicants to receive training in recognized centers in other resource-poor countries but travel to Europe and North America is not excluded. The usual period of support is 2-6 months and the maximum sum awarded is 10,000.

Applications open 1st September and close on the 11th October 2013.
