Our Story

Our over-arching goal of this program is to improve interdisciplinary academic research capacity in Zimbabwe in the conduct of community based research on HIV using critical skills in genomics, bioinformatics and data science to analyze behavioral and biologic interventions for HIV prevention and treatment. We therefore offer Doctoral & Post Doctoral fellowships, Short Courses & Master Courses as a means of developing capacity.

Post Doc and PhD Fellowships


Two PhD/DPhil fellowship are on offer for a maximum duration of three years

The Biomedical Research and Training Institute (BRTI), a not-for-profit making research and training institution dedicated to building health research capacity in Zimbabwe and the SADC region is inviting applications for postgraduate fellowships sponsored by the Fogarty International Center of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), USA through its International Research Training Award  (Advanced Training in Community Based Research; training in Bio-informatics, Drug Resistance and Pathogenesis programme).

A PostDoctoral Program in HIV Related Infectious Disease Genomics

The Post Doc which are on offer seek to provide multi-disciplinary training to junior scientists to strengthen research capacity and promote high quality, innovative, and locally relevant community-based research on HIV using critical skills in genomics, bioinformatics and data science to analyse behavioural and biologic interventions for the prevention and treatment of HIV, TB and opportunistic infections.
