i Dec 2nd Comments Off by

The Stanford Center for Innovation in Global Health (CIGH) is pleased to announce its participation in the Global Health Equity Scholars Fellowship awarded by the Fogarty International Center at the National Institutes of Health to train approximately 40 fellows over the next five years to conduct global health research. As part of a consortium with the University of California – Berkeley, Florida International University and Yale University, Stanford has assembled mentors, partnered with training sites, and identified research opportunities focused on preparing researchers to address the new challenges in health that have emerged in the slum areas of urban and rural low- and middle-income countries.

The GHES Fellowship, sponsored by Fogarty International Center/NIH and the Center for Innovation in Global Health at Stanford, is designed for: U.S. doctoral students (PhD, DrPH, etc.), professional students (MD, DDS, DVM, PharmD, etc.), postdoctoral fellows, as well as foreign scholars from participating international sites in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs). New this year is the eligibility for early career junior faculty (assistant professors with PI eligibility). The purpose of the program is to support an 11-month mentored research fellowship for investigators who are interested in studying diseases and conditions in developing countries.

Deadline: December 14, 2012, 3:00 p.m. PDT. See the application website for details.

Note: Angela Garcia (Assistant Professor, Stanford) writes that she is the PI of one of the newest projects–an ethnographic study of drug addiction, mental illness and urban poverty in Mexico City–and she would like to encourage pre-and postdocs in medical anthropology to consider applying, particularly candidates who have a demonstrated interest in mental health, migration, drug policy and/or drug addiction in the context of Mexico’s ongoing drug war.
