The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is now accepting applications for its Sexual and Gender Minority HIV Prevention Research Postdoctoral Fellowship program.

The purpose of this fellowship program is to recruit, mentor, and further train doctoral-level scientists to conduct research in US sexual and gender minority (SGM) populations, focusing on HIV prevention among gay, bisexual, and other men who have sex with men and/or transgender women. The CDC’s HIV research branch in the division of HIV prevention is the administrative lead and mentoring host of the program. The mentor and fellow will collaborate to develop an agenda of diverse SGM-related research activities completed together over the two-year training period. These activities will be based on the fellow’s area(s) of interest, training, and expertise in line with the purpose of the SGM fellowship program and available opportunities at the CDC. 

The application deadline is April 15, 2024 at 11:59PM ET. Applications will be reviewed on a rolling-basis.
