The Italian Society of Dermatology (SIDeMaST) provides research support in the form of fellowships to dermatologists or other scientific figures willing to develop a research project on skin biology (including but not limited to genetics, immunology, oncology), epidemiology of skin diseases, and new developments in dermatological therapy.
The fellowships provide annual salary stipend (€ 25,000).
In the 2014 program 4 awards will be available. General eligibility requirements include being a certified dermatologist member of the society (SIDeMaST) or a non-dermatologist (including biologist and biotechnologist), and an age of less than 35 years. Application must include the research project, the curriculum vitae of the candidate, a letter of support from the Department Head specifying where the research project will be carried out. These letters must also indicate whether additional funds are available for integrating the candidate salary and to perform the research. Candidates are expected to personally prepare and submit their application materials, which should be mailed as a pdf file to the Society office no later than December 31, 2014.
The projects will be evaluated by a Committee nominated by board of the society (SIDeMaST). The evaluation of the applications will take into account the applicant's background, potential, research proposal (including transferability), and environment. The salary will be provided in two distinct payments: 50% at the start of the fellowship, 50% upon presentation of the project results.
