The VALIDATE Network - Vaccine development for complex intracellular neglected pathogens
RSTMH Global Assessors, 2018
Join a new group of experts who will help shape the careers of researchers and professionals in tropical medicine and global health.
This group of Global Assessors will be responsible for assessing applications to our small grants programme, and potentially abstract entries for our national and international meetings and events.
We are looking for experts with experience across all thematic areas, especially our thematic priority areas in our new strategy, which include infectious and emerging diseases, neglected tropical diseases, non-communicable diseases, drug resistance, and planetary health.
We’re also looking for people from a range of backgrounds including medicine, academic research, public health, law, statistics and modelling, health economics, social sciences and the humanities. Experience of case study design, epidemiology, clinical and community based research, laboratory science, implementation and translation, and policy development are all welcomed.
Your role will be crucial in helping to select the next round of early career researchers to receive a small grant, many of whom are starting their journey in tropical medicine and global health. We welcome applications from people from any country and from a range of career stages.
Involvement in this group will be on a voluntary basis, and we are looking for a pool of around 50 assessors. We hope that assessors would review 25 applications maximum. To participate you should be willing and able to provide give time between the start of April and end of May 2018. There will also be potential times to review abstracts later in the year.
