How a straight path l.jpg
How - a straight path

  • Research acumen in a focused area of Infectious Disease research

  • Track-record of peer-reviewed publications

  • Propose research interesting enough to receive extramural funding

    • ex, National Institutes of Health Mentored Clinical Scientist Development K08/K23 Awards.

Id fellow research at uva l.jpg

  • Develop a research program with one or more faculty members from the Infectious Disease Group or from another department.

  • Extensive mentoring and an Advisory committee

  • Protected time

  • Superb research infrastructure and support

Today l.jpg

  • Don’t worry about “finding” a project or mentor

  • Get a sense for our environment first

  • Determine if our program is the right fit for your career vision

  • If yes, after the match, we pay to revisit and your research project details and mentor will happen.
