We are delighted to announce a call for applications for the Sustained Training in Aging and HIV Research (STAHR) Program. This program aims to develop promising scientists into high quality independently-funded researchers whose long-term careers will make a lasting contribution to the area of HIV and aging mental health research, including neurocognitive impairment. The STAHR program is aimed at clinical and translational post-doctoral fellows and junior faculty from across the United States, with previous training in either aging or HIV research, but interested in gaining expertise in the intersection of these two factors. STAHR scholars will attend a 4-week summer institute in 2019 and an annual 2-day workshop over the following three years, which will be held at the University of California San Diego. There will also be a number of remote training opportunities available to scholars during the three years of the program.
Application deadline: March 1st, 2019
Eligibility: Applicants must be post-residency fellows, post-doctoral fellows, or junior faculty members (holding no higher than an Assistant Professor rank position) with a clinical or translational research background and prior training in aging or HIV research.
*Candidates with a background in aging research and those of underrepresented backgrounds are especially encouraged to apply*
