Fellows represent the permanent scholarly body of the CEBGH and consist of current Tulane faculty members.
Membership as a fellow does not interfere with each faculty member's primary academic role and obligations. Rather, fellows use the Center as a complementary means of achieving research, training goals, and commitments.
Criteria of Eligibility and Appointment
Center fellows should be persons with expertise in one or several aspects of experimental research and should show a strong interest in global health issues. They should see the need for contributing to the development and maintenance of the Center's high quality services and research activities.
Fellowship appointments are based on a competitive application process and are for a three-year period. Reappointments are accepted according to the accomplishment of each fellow's responsibilities. Fellows may resign by notifying the Center's director.
A copy of the fellowship application can be found here. For additional information, contact Andrea Meyer, Project Director.
Fellows have priority rights to use the Center's services, including computer facilities, scientific and software resources, work space, and attendance at seminars. They also receive administrative and logistical assistance in the preparation and submission of proposals.
Fellows are responsible for committing themselves to the Center's activities by working on a grant proposal based in the Center and by participating in lectures and workshops.
