CTEGD Emerging Fellows Symposium

We invite recent and soon-to-graduate students (from any biological discipline) to apply for funded postdoctoral fellowships and positions to study parasitic diseases at the University of Georgia. Selected applicants will present their research to the CTEGD community on May 3, 2021 via Zoom at CTEGD Emerging Fellows Symposium. The applicants will get to meet with several faculty at CTEGD, as well as former and current trainees of the T32 program. We strongly support and encourage scholars from historically excluded or underrepresented groups to apply.

To apply, please send a cover letter and your CV by April 2, 2021 to ctegdt32@uga.edu

Program Goals

Since 2004, the Center for Tropical and Emerging Global Diseases at UGA has received funding from the NIH for an institutional training grant with the purpose of training researchers to become independent scientists who study parasitic diseases in the context of global health.

  1. US citizen or permanent resident (if applying for T32 fellowship)
  2. PhD received on or before August 1, 2021


Program Highlights

The Training in Tropical and Emerging Global Diseases program seeks fundamental insights into protozoan and helminth parasites and their interactions with mammalian hosts and invertebrate vectors. The CTEGD is an exceptional place to do a postdoc with an invigorating and supportive environment. Athens is a quirky, fun, and affordable city to live in.
