Fellowship Program for Women in Dermatologic Research
In 2017, with co-sponsorship of the Journal of Investigative Dermatology (JID) and the Women’s Dermatologic Society (WDS), two (2) one year fellowships will be awarded to fully trained female dermatologists who aspire to research careers, one in the U.S. and one in Europe or the U.K. Each $5,000 fellowship will support travel, lodging, registration, and poster presentation(s) at the Annual Meetings of the Society for Investigative Dermatology (SID) and the European Society for Dermatological Research (ESDR), as well as other research meetings in their areas of interest, funds permitting. Fellows will be charged with informing themselves about scientific advances, particularly those presented by female investigators, and with sharing their learning with others online via the JID Connector, and the International Journal of Women’s Dermatology (IJWD). Fellows will be introduced to the SID, ESDR, and WDS leadership, and to research interest-appropriate mentors at each meeting and with their assistance will be expected to serve as a source of introductions and advice to other early career women. A commitment of two (2) hours per week, on average, is anticipated to fulfill the responsibilities of the Fellowship.
Details of the Fellowship Program and instructions for applying can be obtained by contacting the JID at JIDEditor@sidnet.org. Applications are due November 15, 2016. The Program is supported by a generous grant from Eli Lilly & Co.
