IAVI International Training Programme - ADVANCED DEGREE TRAINING SUPPORT

Application Deadline / Expiry Date: 
Friday, 14 April, 2017

The purpose of the Advanced Degree Training component is to provide financial support for qualified staff at IAVI-affiliated Clinical Research Centers (CRCs) to obtain advanced degrees beyond a Bachelors’ degree or equivalent to further develop scientific leadership and management capacity at CRCs. Advanced degree training for collaborating CRC professional staff is an essential component in building a sustainable human resource network that complements the research infrastructure already supported by IAVI. Development of increased scientific leadership at the IAVI-affiliated CRCs will support both investigator- and sponsor-led research activities, lead to greater country ownership of HIV vaccine research, and will contribute to the development and implementation of a national-level research agenda. This increased capacity will contribute to the development of an effective HIV vaccine, as well as data that can be translated into improvements in health-related areas.
