TDR advanced postdoctoral research and training grants

The Special Programme for Research and Training in Tropical Diseases (TDR) invites applications for advanced postdoctoral research and/or training grants from individuals who are nationals of low- and middle-income countries (LMICs). 

Two types of grants are offered: strategic support for re-entry and postdoctoral research and training grants for the acquisition of special skills relevant to research, research management or leadership:
  • Re-entry grants: Research-based mentorship and support (maximum US$ 25 000 per year for up to 2 years) for PhD holders employed and returning to their home institution within 24 months after graduation.
  • Postdoctoral advanced training and research: including short-term attachments to acquire leadership and research skills related to leadership and research activities not available within the home country or institutions.


The target age bracket is 35-40 years old. Applications from individuals returning to their home institutions from an institution within their country, another LMIC or high-income country are eligible. All applications must be proposed as an integral part of an institutional development programme where they are employed and the career plan for the applicant defined. For both schemes, priority will be given to proposals addressing themes related to implementation research in public health. Grantees are expected to exhibit scientific expertise in their chosen field, promote the development of their home institution research environment and disseminate their research findings, including peer-reviewed open access publications, on completion of their grants.
Applications are welcome from individuals working in ministries of health with responsibility for planning, implementing research and/or evaluating disease control programmes related to infectious diseases of poverty.
