Visiting Fellowship for African Researchers

Offered by the National Centre for Epidemiology and Population Health (NCEPH), this is an exciting opportunity to enhance population and health research capacity in sub-Saharan Africa by building closer ties with research centres at The Australian National University (ANU).

In 2014-5 this program will support one African researcher (at any career stage) for up to three months at the ANU. The fellowship will fund travel, accommodation and living allowance. The researcher must be affiliated with an African research institute or university.

A primary goal of this program to establish on-going collaboration following the visit.
