AWARDS AND JOBS

OWSD-Elsevier Foundation Awards for Early Career Women Scientists from the Developing World
Deadline: 30 September 2020

These AWARDS reward and encourage women working and living in eligible developing countries who are in the early stages of their scientific careers, having often overcome great challenges to achieve research excellence. Awardees must have made a demonstrable impact on the research environment and must have received their PhD in the last ten years.
The award has an important impact on local research cultures. Previous winners say the awards have had a powerful effect, enhancing the visibility of their past work and creating new opportunities for the future. The awardees are also powerful role models for girls and young women on their countries. In the past years, each winner received a cash prize of USD 5,000 and an all-expenses-paid trip to attend the annual meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) in the U.S.A., where the Awards Ceremony took place. However, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2021 annual meeting of the AAAS will be held entirely online. We are currently evaluating other international scientific events and the trip will be confirmed in the coming months according to how the COVID-19 pandemic evolves.
A total of five Awards will be given to women who are within ten years of receiving their PhD and have lived at least 5 of the last 15 years in one of the 66 science and technology lagging countries. There will be one prize awarded for each of the four regions of the developing world plus an additional “floating” award for a particularly deserving candidate from any of these regions. Winners will be informed of their selection by 31 December 2020. The Awards for Physical Sciences are offered in the fields of Chemistry, Mathematics and Physics. Any combination of these fields (i.e. interdisciplinary) is acceptable. You can see a list of eligible disciplines here.

Administrative Supplements for P30 Cancer Centers Support Grants
(CCSG) to Stimulate Research in HIV/AIDS Cancer Research Projects at
NCI-designated Cancer Centers (March 31, 2020):

The National CancerInstitute (NCI) announces an opportunity for supplemental funding in
support of projects that utilize biospecimens from the AIDS and Cancer Specimen Resource (ACSR)* inventory (or another certified biorepository); data from existing cohorts; and/or biospecimens and
clinical data from the Cancer Center itself, including international partnerships of the Center. The primary goal of this initiative is to stimulate research in AIDS defining (ADCs) and non-AIDS defining cancers (NADCs) at the NCI-designated Cancer Centers (CC). This effort is aimed to expand the knowledge base of HIV/AIDS cancer pathogenesis, etiology, early detection, treatments, and cures.

Funding Opportunity Announcement RFA-DK-19-019 (March 9, 2020): The “Food as Medicine: Food Insecurity and HIV-related Comorbidities, Coinfections, and Complications within the Mission of the NIDDK (R01 Clinical Trial Optional)” funding opportunity announcement (FOA) seeks US domestic research projects that address how food insecurity affects HIV comorbidities, coinfections, and complications (CCCs) within the mission of the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK). The approaches may address the pathways linking food insecurity and the development or exacerbation of CCCs; or they may evaluate the mechanisms whereby interventions that alleviate food insecurity improve CCCs. These mechanisms could be related to nutritional inadequacies or patient health-related behaviors.
