New Fellowship in Transplant ID Available: 2011 Joint Research Awards

The IDSA Education and Research Foundation (ERF) and the National Foundation for Infectious Diseases (NFID) have added a new Postdoctoral Fellowship in Transplant ID to the list of Joint Research Awards for 2011. The award is available through funding from Astellas Pharma US, Inc. One award will be given, and the recipient will receive $25,000 a year for two years (the total award is $50,000).

This award will allow a selected individual to receive advanced training in the pathogenesis of infection, including topics such as: molecular virology, the role of infection in the pathogenesis of graft rejection, novel models or therapies of infectious diseases, and the development of assays for microbial agents.  The fellow will benefit from the opportunity to be associated with a senior mentor who will assist the trainee in career planning and research program development.  The two-year period of the fellowship will allow the trainee to find a research focus and an opportunity to develop preliminary data to support applications for independent funding for his or her future career. 

The deadline for applications is March 15. More information regarding requirements and eligibility for the Joint Research Awards, including application details, can be found at
