CRDF Global Is Accepting Applications for Its Cooperative Biological Engagement Biosciences Fellowship Program (CBFP)
CRDF Global’s Cooperative Biological Engagement Biosciences Fellowship Program (CBFP) aims to promote biological safety and security (BS&S) by increasing technical capacity for biological scientists in the Middle East and South Asia (MESA) region, and establishing a regional network for sustainable cooperation on laboratory diagnosis and BS&S standards.
The CBFP is welcoming applications from early to mid-career biological scientists working in government ministries, government-operated biological science laboratories, and/or research and diagnostic facilities with experience in laboratory operations, research, and diagnostics from Jordan, Lebanon, and Turkey. Only applications from these three countries will be considered. Selected fellows will conduct a science exchange fellowship of up to six months in duration to engage in research at a host institution including, but not limited to, the United States, Europe, and the Middle East beginning no earlier than September 2018.
