The Partnerships for Enhanced Engagement in Research (PEER) program is excited to announce the second cycle of the Women in Science Mentoring Program aimed at supporting the career development of women in diverse science fields.
The 2019 PEER Women in Science Mentoring Program has chosen Tuberculosis (TB) in Asia as its area of focus and will support networks of female scientists conducting research on the development and uptake of effective tools and approaches for preventing, detecting, and treating TB. We seek applicants from diverse academic backgrounds including but not limited to the behavioral and social sciences; public health and medical sciences; life and earth sciences; and computer, engineering or physical sciences.
Applicants for this cycle of the program must be a citizen or resident based in: Bangladesh, India, Indonesia, Philippines, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, or Uzbekistan.
The Women in Science Mentoring Program will support a one-year mentorship experience, which includes professional training for both mentors and mentees. Additionally, mentees will be eligible to apply for competitive seed grants following the year-long program. Please note - mentors and mentees must apply for the program as a group, as PEER is unable to match participants.
Further details about the program are attached and more will be available when the request for applications is released on Monday October 21, 2019 on the program website at www.nas.edu/peer. Applications will be due on January 10, 2020.
