Science of Eradication: Malaria Nomination Process

The Science of Eradication: Malaria is a nomination-based leadership development course. The curriculum content, pedagogy, and selection of participants is overseen by a Faculty Planning Committee comprised of individuals from the Barcelona Institute for Global Health, Harvard University, and the Swiss Tropical and Public Health Institute.

ELIGIBILITY CRITERIA

The Science of Eradication: Malaria leadership development course is specifically targeted toward individuals with the potential to advance to leadership roles in the field of malaria within the next 2-5 years. Individuals must have primary professional responsibilities related to malaria control, elimination, and eradication efforts, including:

  • Global public health, government, biomedical, public, and private sector professionals, including health and business;
  • Junior faculty, mid-career scientists, researchers from academia or research institutions; and
  • Malaria control program administrators or field-based personnel.

Individuals invited to apply are required to submit a Curriculum Vitae and a ‘Statement of Motivation’ that outlines both their professional interests in malaria and how the leadership development course will benefit their career.

Limited travel fellowships are available for individuals from malaria endemic countries, and prioritized by the Faculty Planning Committee.

The course organizers independently solicit course nominations from a diverse cross-section of the wider global health and malaria communities.  Unsolicited applications are not accepted.
