The Fleming Fellowship are a global network of antimicrobial resistance (AMR) experts and advocates for action. Fleming fellows develop skills, provide mentorship and offer opportunities for peer-to-peer knowledge sharing. Each has the capability and network to solve problems, lead and contribute to the global effort to track and address AMR.
The Fleming Fellowship scheme is divided into the following categories. (More to be announced soon!)
These fellowships offer mentorship and a programme of tailored professional development for each fellow. The scheme also supports fellows’ home institutions to address core learning needs that are common across their workforce.
Professional Fellowships are initially being offered to individuals already engaged in AMR and antimicrobial use surveillance in the field of microbiology. Later recruitment will support fellowships in epidemiology, veterinary medicine, animal husbandry and pharmacy.
Professional Fellowships are delivered by Mott MacDonald in collaboration with nominated Fleming Fund host institutions.
- Eligibility - Professional Fellowships are offered in countries where the Fleming Fund has country grants. They are restricted to employees of key national institutions.
- Number of Fellows - 4 to 8 fellows per participating country, for a global cohort of up to 192 Professional Fellowships.
- Duration of Fellowship - 18 to 24 months, part time, completed alongside a fellow’s ordinary employment.
- Applications - potential fellows will be invited to apply through a closed competition.
These fellowships will support a small number of fellows to collaborate with government to define, lead and deliver the next steps in addressing AMR within their respective sectors, in alignment with national action plans on AMR.
Policy Fellowships will focus on resourcing and facilitating participation in communities of practice and peer networks that span economics, scientific expertise, policy and advocacy at a national and regional level.
They will offer a defined package of financial support that can be used across a flexible timeline. They will provide dedicated resources for travel, training and convening meetings, workshops and events.
