National Program

The CTN Postdoctoral Fellowship Awards Program facilitates research in HIV, hepatitis C (HCV) and other sexually transmitted and blood-borne infections (STBBIs) and related health conditions by providing funding to candidates who wish to write a trial protocol, research program, and develop and run their own trial. Each award is worth $50,000 plus up to $5,000 in travel allowance on expenses claimed. The fellowships provide career support and are renewable for up to two years. Former CTN postdoctoral fellows from the last two decades include some of Canada’s leading HIV clinical investigators today.

Eligibility

We invite applications from MDs who have completed their medical residency program or PhDs who have completed their PhD. In addition, Biostatisticians with a PhD and working in a HIV or related health conditions group are also eligible to apply.

International Fellowship

One International Fellowship is available to train a scientist who is committed to developing and conducting HIV treatment or prevention research studies in a resource-limited country. The amount of this award will be consistent with local rates and will include travel to semi-annual meetings in Canada. Please refer to the specific guidelines for this fellowship.
