The Burroughs-Wellcome Fund’s Career Awards for Medical Scientists provides up to $700,000 in support over five years to help physician-scientists bridge their advanced postdoctoral/fellowship training with the early years of faculty service. Proposals must be in the area of basic biomedical, disease-oriented, translational, or molecular, genetic, or pharmacological epidemiology research. Proposals in the area of epidemiology should contact the Fund to determine their eligibility. This bridging award is meant to facilitate the transition to a career in research and buy time from service commitments. Nominations from candidates who work in reproductive science are encouraged.
Candidates must hold an M.D., D.D.S., or D.V.M. degree and be a fellow, resident, or a postdoctoral researcher and have at least two years of postdoctoral research experience at the time of application. Proposals must be in the area of basic biomedical, disease-oriented, or translational research. Proposals in health services research or involving large-scale clinical trials are ineligible.
Limited Submission: OHSU may nominate five candidates. If you are interested in applying, please submit a brief research summary, CV, and letter of support via the limited submission form by August 31, 2012. The external deadline for the final application to the Burroughs-Wellcome Fund is October 1, 2012.
