CBEP Biosciences Fellowship Program Opportunity


Please see attached information on the CBEP Biosciences Fellowship Program that is designed to promote biological safety and security (BS&S) by increasing technical capacity for biological scientists in the Middle East and South Asia (MESA) region. The program aims to establish a regional network for sustainable cooperation on laboratory diagnosis and BS&S standards.

This opportunity is open to early to mid-career biological scientists working in government ministries, government-operated biological science laboratories, and/or research and diagnostic facilities in the following countries:


· Jordan

· Lebanon

· Turkey

CBFP will award up to 14 fellowships to candidates from the three eligible countries. Selected fellows will conduct a science exchange fellowship of up to six months in duration to engage in research at a host institution in the United States, Europe, the Middle East, or elsewhere, as appropriate. Funding for this fellowship program is provided by the U.S. Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA).

CRDF Global will host 2 informal question and answer (Q&A) webinars on Monday, 20 November and Monday, 11 December 2017 at 11:00 am U.S. Eastern Standard Time (EST).
