The International Union of Physiological Sciences offers fellowship support to physiology faculty at medical schools in developing nations. Funds will support one scientist for one year of advanced work in physiology at a well-established university, or two scientists for six months of study each.
The fellowship will provide tuition support and a stipend of $25,000 per year, prorated for periods shorter than 12 months. Eligible applicants must plan to return to their faculty positions for at least three years following completion of the fellowship and should make arrangements with prospective host universities before submitting applications. In the selection process, preference will be given to younger applicants.
The application deadline is March 1. For more information, contact Heinz Valtin, Department of Physiology, Dartmouth Medical School, Hanover, N.H. 03756.
