The Fenway Institute, Boston, Mass invites applications for a one to two year HIV and/or LGBTQ Studies post-doctoral research fellow position under the direction of our Medical Research Director, Dr. Kenneth Mayer, which can also include a joint appointment in the Department of Global Health and Population at the Harvard T.C.
