amfAR, The Foundation for AIDS Research, is pleased to announce the availability of support for Mathilde Krim Fellowships in Basic Biomedical Research.

Qualifications

Krim Fellowship applicants must have a research or clinical doctorate and no more than four years of postdoctoral training at the time of LOI submission, and are expected to secure an independent research position by no later than six months following the end of the two year fellowship period of performance (i.e., within 2.5 years following the start of fellowship funding).

The Krim Fellowship applicant must be mentored during the funding period by an experienced investigator who: (a) is affiliated with the same nonprofit institution; (b) is qualified to oversee the proposed research; (c) has successfully supervised postdoctoral fellows; and (d) is at the associate professor level or higher.

 

Available Support and Performance Period

Each fellowship is funded at a total of up to $125,000 (phase I): A direct cost maximum of $110,000 is allowed for personnel (salary and fringe benefits) and other research-related expenses. It is expected that a Krim fellow will devote the decided majority of his or her time to the approved fellowship project. Personnel costs supported by the fellowship grant must represent a minimum of 85% effort and be consistent with institution policy for other institution personnel of similar rank and title, regardless of source(s) of support. An additional $3,636 is provided to support the direct costs of participation in activities designated by amfAR. Institutional indirect costs may not exceed 10% of direct costs.

Contingent upon subsequent application and peer review, phase II funding for an additional 12 months may be approved to support basic biomedical HIV/AIDS research costs (up to $50,000 total cost) during the first year of a independent research position at any US or international nonprofit research institution.

The period of performance for Mathilde Krim Fellowships awarded under this RFP will be from January 1, 2012, to December 31, 2013.

Preventing Torture, Training Course for South Asia NHRIs

This innovative online training program coordinated by the APF aims to equip staff of national human rights institutions with valuable skills in monitoring places of detention and preventing torture.

The course, to be run in partnership with the Association for the Prevention of Torture (APT), will involve participants from the national human rights institutions of South Asia: Bangladesh, India, the Maldives, Nepal and Sri Lanka.

Running from 11 July - 13 August 2011, the five-week program will explore and discuss:

  • the concept of torture prevention, including international and regional instruments on torture and other forms of ill-treatment
  • investigating allegations of torture
  • monitoring places of detention and interviewing detainees
  • cooperating with the international human rights system
  • promoting public awareness and conducting public inquiries.

The blended learning course will involve a number of set readings, online discussions and regular assignments, facilitated by experienced trainers from the APF, the APT and other leading organisations.

Course materials will draw heavily on the training manual and CD-Rom resource - Preventing Torture: An Operational Guide for National Human Rights Institutions - which has been jointly prepared by the APF, the APT and the OHCHR.

Following the online training sessions, participants will attend a week-long workshop (19-23 September 2011) in Kathmandu, Nepal, to discuss torture prevention strategies and issues in greater detail.

The workshop will be hosted by the Human Rights Commission of Nepal.

    The goal of AVAC's HIV Prevention Research Advocacy Fellowship is to expand the capacity of civil society advocates and organizations to monitor, support and help shape biomedical HIV prevention research and related implementation worldwide. The Advocacy Fellowship is guided by the belief that effective and sustainable advocacy grows out of work that reflects organizational and individual interests and priorities.

    The Advocacy Fellowship provides support to emerging and mid-career advocates in developing countries to design and implement advocacy projects focused on biomedical HIV prevention research activities in their countries and communities. The Advocacy Fellowship is primarily focused on countries where biomedical prevention research is planned or ongoing. Advocacy Fellows carry out their projects while based at host organizations that are active partners in the Fellowship process.

    HIV Prevention Research Advocacy Fellows are:

    • Emerging or mid-career community leaders and advocates interested in building their skills in understanding and advocating around HIV prevention research
    • Individuals with some experience or education in the areas of HIV and AIDS, public health, international development, women's rights, communications and/or advocacy
    • Based in developing countries where biomedical HIV prevention clinical research is planned or ongoing or medical male circumcision for HIV prevention is being introduced
    • Able to collaborate with English-speaking mentors

    Fellows receive training, full-time financial support and technical assistance to plan and implement a targeted one-year project within host organizations working in HIV/AIDS and/or advocacy. The Fellowship builds the capacity of both the Fellow and the respective host organization in HIV prevention research advocacy.

    Interested in learning more about the Fellowship Program?
