Female Fellowship Awards

Women are underrepresented in science, particularly in low-and-middle income countries (LMICs), therefore to support the professional development of female scientists, the IVVN will fund fellowships for female post-doctoral researchers working at an LMIC-based research organisation (‘Mentee’) to work with a principal investigator (‘Mentor’) in the UK.

Fellowships are available to carry out a defined piece of work that addresses a key bottleneck preventing the development of vaccines for livestock and zoonotic diseases of importance in LMICs.

The IVVN has £100,000 of fellowship funding, and expects to fund 2-3 projects. Funding will cover salary, travel, accommodation and consumables for the Mentee, and consumables and travel for the Mentor. Importantly, capital will be available to allow the Mentee to continue research at their institute. The IVVN envisage that the fellowships will result in a strong Mentee-Mentor relationship, and will provide the Mentee with access to the necessary facilities and expertise to complete of a piece of work that furthers the career of the Mentee.

Both the Mentee and Mentor must be members of the IVVN; membership is free and available here.

Please note, this call has now closed.
