Career Development Fellowships in Poverty-Related Diseases

The European and Developing Countries Clinical Trials Partnership (EDCTP) is seeking proposals for Career Development Fellowships in poverty-related diseases and child and adolescent health.

The purpose of this Call for Proposals is to support early- to mid-career researchers (“fellows”) by providing them with opportunities to train and develop their clinical research skills.

The objectives are:

  • To promote retention of postdoctoral researchers and postgraduate medical researchers in the clinical or field research areas of sub-Saharan Africa
  • To equip the fellows to establish themselves as independent researchers with ability to establish their own research teams at host institutions in sub-Saharan Africa.
  • Proposals should enhance the ability of the fellow to design, plan and execute clinical biomedical and/or social science/ethics research projects within the scope of the EDCTP2 programme.

    Due to the extraordinary global crisis of COVID-19 that is also affecting African countries, this topic should also be considered by applicants.

    Funding Information

  • The call budget is EUR 3.75 million.
  • The requested EDCTP contribution per action should not exceed EUR 150,000.
  • The funding level is 100% of eligible costs.
  • The maximum duration of the proposed action is 36 months, with a foreseen start of the action no later than 1 October 2021. Proposals from women are encouraged.

    Expected Impact

    Projects funded under this Call for Proposals should:

  • Contribute towards the achievement of SDG3 ‘Ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all ages’
  • Promote career progression of researchers in Africa
  • Encourage entry and reintegration of African scientists trained abroad and
  • Enable the retention of postdoctoral and postgraduate researchers in their respective research fields and that the researchers develop into independent researchers and team leaders at host institutions in sub-Saharan Africa.
  • Ultimately these grants will contribute to the generation of a critical mass of clinical or field/social science/ethics researchers and institutional research capacity in sub-Saharan Africa.

    Eligibility Criteria

    A proposal/application will only be considered eligible if:

  • Its content corresponds, wholly or in part, to the topic/contest description for which it is submitted
  • It complies with the eligibility conditions for participation set out below, depending on the type of action.
  • The applicant must be a legal entity established in sub-Saharan Africa (the applicant legal entity).
  • The fellow must be employed or have guaranteed employment by the applicant legal entity (the host organisation) where they intend to remain working for a minimum of two years after the expiration of the grant.

    The applying fellow must:

  • Be a resident of or be willing to relocate to a sub-Saharan African country;
  • Be either a graduate in a subject relevant to the EDCTP2 programme, with a PhD and up to five years’ relevant postdoctoral research experience, or a medical doctor with up to five years’ research experience;
  • Have at least one publication in an international peer-reviewed journal;
  • Not have been funded under this fellowship scheme before.
  • The requested EDCTP2 contribution per action shall not exceed EUR 150,000.
