The Consortium for Advanced Research Training in Africa (CARTA) has announced postdoctoral fellowships and re-entry grants for its fellows. All CARTA fellows who have completed their PhDs can now apply for these positions to advance their skills and competencies in population and health research.
Building on its goal to secure the future and foster the career growth of its high-achieving graduates, CARTA will offer up to 5 one-year postdoctoral fellowships and 5 re-entry grants in 2015. CARTA re-entry grants aim to support fellows returning to or remaining at their own institutions to start a research project. Re-entry grants will be awarded on a competitive basis taking into consideration the scientific quality of the proposed research, its potential to lead to larger research programme, appropriate exchanges to network and learn specific skills or techniques, and involvement of a multidisciplinary team.

CARTA postdoctoral fellowships offer its PhD graduates the opportunity to build specific skills, expand their networks, encounter research leadership and role models, receive strong mentoring and learn the demands of community and public engagement. The fellowships will be awarded for a maximum of 12 months and are tenable at any African CARTA partner-institution or associated research institutes, including INDEPTH Network Centers.
