    The Collaborative Initiative for Paediatric HIV Education and Research (CIPHER) Grant Programme is designed for mentored early-stage investigators to advance paediatric HIV research and to fill critical knowledge gaps that impede paediatric HIV diagnosis, prevention, treatment and care in resource-limited settings. It does this by promoting and encouraging HIV research related to infants, children and adolescents, thereby contributing to scientific progress in the field. Scientific areas of interest include both clinical and operational research.

    US$ 1.2K will be dispersed in research grants and the nature and scope of the proposed research will vary from application to application, and therefore, it is anticipated that the size and duration of each award will also vary. Awards will be funded for up to two years and for up to US$ 75,000 per year (including direct research costs and applicable indirect costs). Second-year funding is contingent upon demonstration of satisfactory progress during year one. The CIPHER Grant Programme encourages collaborations between different study sites and institutions; at least 80% of the direct grant expenses have to be spent in LMICs. Additional support will be provided for grantees to attend the 21st International AIDS Conference (AIDS 2016), which will be held from 17 to 22 July 2016 in Durban, South Africa, where they will present their research projects and will be officially awarded.

    Eligibility

    Any individual with the skills, formal education and access to resources necessary to carry out the proposed research is welcome to submit an application for the CIPHER Grant Programme. The principal investigator (PI) is encouraged to work with a mentor and his/her institutional colleagues and partners to develop the research plan.

    The PI must be an early-stage investigator, i.e., individual who obtained her/his final research degree (e.g., PhD, MD followed by research training, MBBS) less than 10 years before the application deadline.

    The PI must serve for the first time as primary PI. Primary PIs who previously received a non-training research grant exceeding US$ 30,000 are not eligible.

    The PI must fulfil one of the following criteria prior to the submission deadline for the Letter of Intent:

    • He/she is a clinical/research trainee (e.g., fellow, senior resident) at an academic institute or an institute whose primary mission is research.
    • He/she has a faculty or comparable position (e.g., assistant professor, lecturer) at an academic institute or an institute whose primary mission is research.
    • He/she has an established position at an organization with adequate research infrastructure to undertake the proposed research activities.

    The research project should demonstrate the potential to contribute to the optimization of HIV diagnosis, prevention, treatment and care for infants, children and adolescents affected by HIV in resource-limited settings by responding to identified research gaps.

    Applications are encouraged from any country, but preference, approximately 80%, will be given to applicants from low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) according to the World Bank classification.

    The PI must choose a mentor with relevant expertise in paediatric HIV research (a mentorship plan and letter of commitment from the mentor will be requested from shortlisted applicants invited to submit a Full Proposal).

    The budget should reflect that at least 80% of the direct grant expenses will be spent in LMICs.


    How to apply:

    Letters of Intent must be submitted no later than 23:59 CET, 31 October 2015.

    Applicants will be asked to provide Letters of Intent that briefly outline their proposed projects, including background, specific aims, preliminary data (if any) and research methodology. The Call for Letters of Intent is now available on the CIPHER website. The research project must respond to one of the identified research priorities.

    The Letter of Intent can only be submitted through the online system and in the format provided. Applications not submitted through the online system will not be accepted. Only applications in English will be considered.

    Please note that a letter of support from the applicant’s institution is required, as well as a copy of the applicant’s terminal research degree diploma. Applicants will be requested to upload these documents during the submission process.

    Any questions may be directed to cipher@iasociety.org.

  • 11/25/15--23:40: Switzerland: JIAS Intern
  • Organization: International AIDS Society
    Country: Switzerland
    Closing date: 07 Dec 2015

    Founded in 1988, the International AIDS Society (IAS) is the world's largest association of HIV professionals, with members from more than 180 countries. IAS members work on all fronts of the global response to AIDS, and include researchers, clinicians, policy and programme planners and public health and community practitioners on the frontlines of the epidemic.

    The IAS organizes the world’s two most prestigious HIV conferences, each convened biennially in alternating years. The International AIDS Conference is the largest conference on any global health or development issue, and provides a unique forum for the intersection of science and advocacy. The IAS Conference on Pathogenesis, Treatment and Prevention brings together a broad cross section of HIV professionals and features the latest HIV science, with a focus on implementation – moving scientific advances into practice.

    In addition, the IAS advocates for urgent action to reduce the global impact of HIV, including increased investment in HIV cure research; optimizing treatment and care for infants, children and adolescents with HIV in resource-limited settings; preventing and treating HIV-related co-infections; and expanding access to prevention, treatment and care for key populations at higher risk for HIV – such as men who have sex with men, people who inject drugs, sex workers and transgender individuals – including protecting their human rights by combatting punitive laws and discriminatory policies.
