If I am posted to a host institution, does it mean I am now employed by that institution for 2 years?
No. Absolutely, not! The Fellow is a trainee with an opportunity to learn on the job. As such, during the 2 year period, you can neither take formal employment elsewhere or seek employment with your host institution. Thus, while Fellows will be totally committed to the pursuit of their host institution objectives and will participate fully in all program activities as assigned, this does not constitute employment with the host institution.
