An opportunity that might appeal to appropriately qualified visitors and contributors to this site to raise our concerns about the ethics of the "African circumcision trials".

If anyone should happen to be successful in landing a job or contract they first saw on these forums, it would be greatly appreciated if they could donate a certain percentage of net income (maybe 5%-10%) to an anti-circumcision organisation/s in the U.S. (or if you're not confident in donating the money, invest a similar amount in your own anti-circumcision activities).

NIH welcomes applications on any ethics topic relevant to HIV research, particularly in the following areas:

* Human specimens
* Pregnant women
* Adolescents and young adults
* Cures (eradicating the virus from the body)
* Clinical trial design (standard of care dilemmas, statistical methods)
* Effectiveness of ethics committees
* New technologies
* Stigma, discrimination, and oppression
* Tuberculosis in the context of HIV infection
* Community engagement

I'm not so sure anyone landed a job or a contract through something on Mothering's forums. But thanks for sharing.
