The goal of amfAR’s Mathilde Krim Fellows in Basic Biomedical Research program is to provide funding for exceptional researchers who are new to the HIV/AIDS field. Krim Fellowship funding will support the successful applicant’s ongoing HIV research, and facilitate the transition to a productive and independent long-term career in the HIV/AIDS biomedical research field. The Krim Fellowship provides support for two years of postdoctoral research, with the possibility of one additional year of research support during the first year of an independent research position.

Applicants must be conducting basic biomedical research on HIV/AIDS to be considered for funding in this program.


Krim Fellowship applicants must have a research or clinical doctorate and no more than four years of postdoctoral training at the time of LOI submission, and are expected to secure an independent research position by no later than six months following the end of the two year fellowship period of performance (i.e., within 2.5 years following the start of fellowship funding).

The Krim Fellowship applicant must be mentored during the funding period by an experienced investigator who: (a) is affiliated with the same nonprofit institution; (b) is qualified to oversee the proposed research; (c) has successfully supervised postdoctoral fellows; and (d) is at the associate professor level or higher.
