Applicants must be appointed full-time Instructors; Assistant Professors in the Schools of Public Health, Medicine, or Nursing; or Assistant Scientists or Assistant Lecturers in the School of Public Health at the time of application. Junior faculty at other JHU schools are eligible to apply.
Post-doctoral Fellows are not eligible, unless a faculty appointment is pending. A post-doc may apply with a letter from their department chair confirming this. The award will not be granted until the faculty appointment is active. If a post-doc is on a T32, CFAR funds cannot pay for training and stipends that are already paid for by the T32.
Associate Professors in the field of HIV are eligible to apply, if there is no history of an R01 award or its equivalent and the criteria of an NIH New and Early Stage Investigator are met: https://grants.nih.gov/policy/new_investigators/index.htm
Any Associate Professor new to HIV research is eligible to apply.
Those in other faculty titles/status are not eligible. Those in “visiting” or “adjunct” status or those pending appointment are not eligible.
