Call for Mentors: 2024 HBIC Award

By 10 December 2023No Comments

We are pleased to announce that the Health Behaviour International Collaborative (HBIC) Award will be running again in 2024 and is now seeking new mentors. The goal is to support ECRs to form a collaboration to undertake a research or program development project under the guidance of an identified mentor. Projects should be in areas of health research, clinical behavioural health, behavioural medicine, or health promotion and must be feasibly accomplished within one year. Six individual awards ($3,000 USD each) will be granted as part of the 2024 competition to offset costs of collaborative activities.

We are now calling for mentors interested in being contacted by potential early career researchers to develop a project application. Please note that the HBIC Award puts the onus on the ECR applicant to lead the application process.

Mentees and mentors must be (or become) affiliated with one of the HBIC 2024’s sponsors: International Society for Behavioral Medicine (ISBM), Society for Health Psychology (SfHP), American Psychosomatic Society (APS), Society of Behavioral Medicine (SBM), German Society for Behavioral Medicine and Behavior Modification (DGVM), and International Behavioural Trials Network (IBTN).

Read more about the HBIC Award and the role of mentors here. If you would like to be listed on our website as a potential mentor, complete this form ideally before Deadline December 15, 2023 (late applications will be accepted but will not give potential applicants much time to approach you).
