The Pew Charitable Trust has invited OHSU to submit one candidate for this year’s Pew Scholars Program in the Biomedical Sciences. The program offers young junior faculty $60,000 per year for four years to pursue innovative research in science related to human health. Funds may be used at the discretion of the scholar for personnel, equipment, supplies or travel (up to $10,000 per year for the Scholar’s salary and benefits).
The program is open to individuals with a doctorate in medicine or biomedical sciences. As of November 1, 2011, nominees must hold full-time appointments at the rank of assistant professor or equivalent. On July 1, 2012, they must not have been in such an appointment for more than three years. Applicants may not have other similar private funding in excess of $50,000 per year; however, funding from the NIH, other government sources, and project grants from public charities and nonprofit associations such as the American Cancer Society do not pose a conflict.
Please note: This opportunity requires internal coordinator because OHSU may submit only one application. If you intend to apply, please complete a limited submission form before September 9, 2011, the internal deadline. Selected candidates will have until November 1, 2011 to submit their application.
