The USAID-supported Jordan Nutrition Innovation Lab (JNIL) at Tufts University, managed by Mindset, is pleased to announce three 6-month fellowships each totaling USD 5,000 (3,544 JD) to be awarded to emerging Jordanian researchers and scientists in the maternal, infant, and young child nutrition (MIYCN) field.
JNIL pursues research to generate evidence on the potential for large maternal, infant, and young child nutrition and reproductive health programs, such as the USAID Community Health and Nutrition Program (CHN), to improve the health and wellbeing of pregnant and lactating women and their children in Jordan. JNIL also aims to build academic capacity to support research on the optimal health and nutritional status of pregnant and lactating women (PLW) and children under two.

In 2022, JNIL will award three fellowships to Jordanian faculty, researchers, scientists, and graduate students conducting their master’s or Ph.D. research to support optimal infant, young child, and maternal nutrition and health. Women, men, youth, and persons with disabilities are encouraged to apply, including early-career applicants with research or faculty appointments in Jordan or who already have institutional affiliations in research or academic institutions.
JNIL fellows will have the opportunity to play an active role in JNIL’s research and capacity-building activities in Jordan. This includes participation in policy and academic seminars, webinars, and a scientific symposium hosted by JNIL.
Applicants must submit a Letter of Intent using the portal here by February 10, 2022. Shortlisted applicants will then be invited to submit a Full Proposal, which will be due by March 17, 2022.
