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 assistant professors with 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, 2014, candidates must hold full-time appointments at the rank of assistant professor or equivalent. On July 1, 2014, candidates must have been in such an appointment for less than three years (not appointed before July 1, 2011), whether or not such an appointment was 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. See full announcement for all eligibility exclusions.
Please note: This opportunity requires internal coordination because OHSU may submit only one application. If you intend to apply, please complete a limited submission form before June 13, 2014.
