Applying for 2017 TRIM-TB Degree Training Positions

Applications are now being accepted for 2017 degree training positions supported by the Dartmouth-Boston (DBU) University Fogarty program from the US National Institutes of Health.

The DBU degree positions in the US are specifically targeted for fellows who will return to MUHAS as staff members of the newly formed Tuberculosis Research Institute at MUHAS (TRIM-TB). Applicants should be current MUHAS faculty or have academic credentials that will qualify them for faculty positions at MUHAS after the degree program. Selection is competitive and MD candidates with an undergraduate GPA ≥3.8 and those who have completed an MMed will be given priority. Current MUHAS faculty members and current staff of the National Program on Tuberculosis and Leprosy are encouraged to apply.

One position each is available at BU and at Dartmouth beginning in 2017:
