The Byramjee Jeejeebhoy Government Medical College (BJGMC) and the Johns Hopkins University (JHU) are proud to announce a new initiative, the Fogarty HIV-TB Training Program at BJGMC. At the end of this 5-year training program, our objective is to have established a core group of BJGMC faculty (approximately 10-15 individuals) who will be recognized institutional leaders in HIV-TB. Building institutional capacity for HIV-TB research at BJGMC requires the identification, recruitment and retention of interested junior and mid-level faculty, who demonstrate not only a sufficient commitment to their own research careers, but also a commitment to research collaboration and mentoring within the institution. The program offers excellent opportunities to selected trainees, including in-depth training at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health.
All qualified applicants should be MPSC selected candidates with the expectation of spending at least the next five years at BJGMC. To be considered, a cover letter and a curriculum vitae must be submitted below along with a completed application form no later than January 1, 2015.
