This is an exciting opportunity for an African population health researcher to develop a collegial partnership with researchers at the National Centre for Epidemiology and Population Health (NCEPH) and the Australian Demographic and Social Research Institute (ADSRI) at The Australian National University (ANU).

In 2015-6 this program will support one African researcher (at any career stage) to undertake research for up to three months at the ANU. The Fellowship will fund travel, accommodation and living allowance. The researcher must be affiliated with an African research institute or university and have a PhD or equivalent.

A primary goal of this program to establish ongoing collaboration following the visit.
