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 program is open to individuals with a doctorate in medicine or biomedical sciences. As of Nov. 1, 2016, candidates must hold full-time appointments at the rank of assistant professor or equivalent and must have been in such an appointment (tenure- or non-tenure track) for less than three years as of on July 15, 2016. This time may have been spent at more than one institution but 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.
