Each AIMS-GSK intern will be hosted by a health research group at a public or private institution in East Africa. The intern will work on a project that is fully integrated into the research of the host group and will be mentored by an experienced statistician. The intern will also have an academic supervisor appointed by AIMS-NEI who will make periodic visits to the group.
Applicants for internships should be AIMS graduates with a strong background in statistics who are interested in pursuing careers in health statistics. Female applicants are particularly encouraged to apply.
Funding for each intern will include a monthly stipend, the cost of the intern’s travel at the beginning and end of the internship, health insurance and visits by an AIMS-NEI supervisor. The costs of hosting the intern, including internal supervision and mentoring, facilities, and research expenses will be borne by the host institution.
