The Indigenous HIV/AIDS Research Training program (IHART2) is recruiting postdoctoral through mid-career PhDs and MDs to apply for up to five 24-month-long HIV/AIDS research mentoring fellowships. Qualifying applicants will primarily be from Indigenous populations (American Indian/Alaska Native, Native Hawaiian/Pacific Islander, and Latino Indigenous) as well as Underrepresented Ethnic Minority or non-Native scholars from socially or economically disadvantaged backgrounds who are currently conducting research with AIAN and NHPI populations. By the end of the 24 month program, Fellows will have designed and implemented a funded pilot study, published HIV/AIDS-related articles; submitted and presented HIV-related conference abstracts to national conferences; and developed or submitted a NIH HIV-related grant proposal.
IHART2 Lauhoe is the second funding cycle for this successful and innovative research training program which is administered at IWRI—Karina Walters, PhD and Bonnie Duran, DrPH are co-principal investigators. This cycle expands the scope of the original IHART by opening the program to more junior scholars as well as Native Hawaiian/Pacific Islander and Latino Indigenous scholars.
The deadline for applications is December 15, 2016. More information and the application can be found at http://lauhoe.iwri.org/.
