Burroughs Welcome- CAREER AWARDS AT THE SCIENTIFIC INTERFACE

Post  iglomski on Mon Jul 09, 2012 9:01 am

CAREER AWARDS AT THE SCIENTIFIC INTERFACE (http://www.bwfund.org/pages/558/Career-Awards-at-the-Scientific-Interface/)

Pre-proposal application deadline: September 4, 2012 by 4:00 p.m. Eastern Time

BWF's Career Awards at the Scientific Interface provide $500,000 to bridge advanced postdoctoral training and the first three years of faculty service. These awards are intended to foster the early career development of researchers who have transitioned or are transitioning from undergraduate and/or graduate work in the physical/mathematical/computational sciences or engineering into postdoctoral work in the biological sciences, and who are dedicated to pursuing a career in academic research. These awards are open to U.S. and Canadian citizens or permanent residents as well as to U.S. temporary residents.

Eligibility requirements:
1. Candidates must hold a PhD degree in one of the fields of mathematics, physics, chemistry, computer science, statistics, or engineering. Exceptions will be made only if the applicant can demonstrate significant expertise in one of these areas, evidenced by publications, undergraduate major, or master’s degree.
2. Candidates must have completed at least 12 months but not more than 48 months of postdoctoral research by the date of the full invited application deadline. No exceptions to this requirement will be made.
3. Candidates cannot hold nor have accepted, either in writing or verbally, a faculty appointment as a tenure-track assistant professor at the time of application - both pre-proposal and full application.
4. Candidates must be committed to a full-time career in research as an independent investigator at a North American degree-granting institution.
5. Candidates must have at least one first-author publication.
6. A candidate's primary postdoctoral mentor must hold an appointment at an accredited, degree-granting institution in the U.S. or Canada.
7. Candidates must not hold nor have accepted a K99 award from the U.S. National Institutes of Health.
8. Citizens and non-citizen permanent residents of the U.S. and Canada are eligible.
9. Temporary residents of the U.S. are eligible.
10. Temporary residents of Canada are not eligible.
11. Candidates with questions about their eligibility must contact BWF in advance of the pre-proposal application deadline. BWF will make no exceptions to its policies.
12. During the postdoctoral and faculty periods, award recipients are required to devote at least 80 percent of their time to research-related activities.

There is no limit on the number of candidates per institution. Eligible candidates for this award may self-nominate.
