Four 'Scientific Initiation' scholarships linked to the Thematic Project "MRC-FAPESP Cluster Randomized Controlled Trial (RCT) for late depression in socioeconomically deprived areas of São Paulo, Brazil" were requested. The fellows will participate in academic and field activities (data collection, activities related to psychosocial intervention, etc.) related to the clinical trial. The main objective of the scholarships is that university students (scholarship holders) have an opportunity to participate in all stages of the clinical trial together with a team of experienced researchers from various fields and countries. A fellow (12 months), a student in the humanities area, will actively participate in the creation of audiovisual material and the development and maintenance of the project website, in addition to the other activities of the project. The other three fellows (12 months each) will be university students with an interest in developing research skills in the field of epidemiology and mental health. These four fellows will participate in the activities of data collection and quality control, training and supervision activities in the Basic Health Units. The Scientific Initiation fellows will be supervised by Dr Scazufca, researcher responsible for the study in Brazil. They will participate in the weekly meetings of the Study Management Committee and the Meeting of the General Coordination of the Study held in São Paulo. (AU)
