Last year I posted a blog about a post-doctoral program in global health. It consistently ranks among the most viewed posts on my blog because apparently there is significant demand out there for programs like it – in particular people from developing countries. Almost every day someone searches for something like “global health scholarship” or “global health fellowship” or “doctoral studies in global health” and ends up on my blog.
I therefore wanted to help publicize that I think is a really exciting opportunity for health researchers from developing countries. The Tropical Disease Research (TDR) programme, a special research unit sponsored by the World Health Organization (WHO) and other organizations, has launched a “leadership development fellowship” post-doctoral programme for researchers from developing countries who already hold a PhD but are looking to learn new skills and widen their international exposure. The programme includes an internship at the WHO in Geneva, an internship abroad, a network of similar fellows, and financial support.
It looks like a great program from a great organization. Click here to learn more.Share on Facebook
