Wellbeing of Women and FIGO announce Academic Fellowship

Wellbeing of Women and FIGO are delighted to announce an Academic Fellowship available for international candidates. A grant of up to £20,000 is available to enable a candidate in the field of obstetrics and gynecology to link up with academic mentors in the UK for a period of up to three years.

The applicant will be based at an academic institution in a low/middle resource country and will have in place a funded research project which addresses a priority area for that country/region. The applicant will have completed their basic specialist training and will have at least three years of post-qualification experience in an academic, clinical or research institution.

The applicant can identify their own UK-based mentor but the opportunity for promising candidates to be matched to mentors will be available.

The closing date for all awards is 3pm on Friday 20th June 2014.

Candidates will be interviewed (via teleconference) in September 2014.
