The Pew Charitable Trust has invited OHSU to sponsor a single candidate for their Pew Scholars Program in the Biomedical Sciences. This prestigious opportunity provides $60,000 in support per year for four years to young investigators of outstanding promise in science relevant to the advancement of human health. The funds may be used, at the discretion of the Pew Scholar, for personnel, equipment, supplies, or travel; however, no more than $10,000 of the annual award may be used for the Scholar’s salary (including benefits).
The Program is open to individuals with a doctorate in medicine or biomedical sciences. As of November 1, 2012, candidates must hold full-time appointments at the rank of assistant professor or equivalent. On July 1, 2013, they must not have been in such an appointment for more than three years, whether or not such appointments were on a tenure track. This time may have been spent at more than one institution. Time spent in clinical internships, residencies, or in work toward board certification does not count as part of this three-year limit.
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 7, 2012, the internal deadline. The selected candidate will have until November 1, 2012 to submit his or her application.
