The HIGH IRI is a two-year program that will seek to meet this need through delivering world-class training and mentoring in implementation research related to infectious diseases. We seek trainees who plan a scholarly career carrying out knowledge generation as their main professional occupation.
The HIGH-IRI will be co-led by myself and Dr. Ross Brownson, who is well known for his leadership in building the field of D&I as well as training researchers in this area. The program will confer skills in conceiving of, designing, executing, and obtaining funding for implementation research addressing infectious diseases around the world.
In addition, the program’s aim is to offer the opportunity for trainees to form strong professional networks among themselves and with the faculty that will act as a sustainable professional and scientific resource.
This program has no cost, but there is a competitive application process, with applications due March 5th, 2021. Interested applicants can apply through the program website at https://sites.wustl.edu/highiri/.
