Burroughs Wellcome Career Awards for Medical Scientists

Deadline:  October 1, 2012

The Burroughs Wellcome Fund‘s Career Awards for Medical Scientists are intended to foster the development and productivity of early career physician-scientists and help them make the critical transition to becoming independent investigators.

The five-year awards provide $700,000 of support to bridge advanced postdoctoral/fellowship training and the early years of faculty service. 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.

Awards are made to degree-granting institutions in the United States or Canada on behalf of the awardee.

The ideal candidate will be two years away from becoming an independent investigator, have at least two years or more of postdoctoral research experience, and have a significant publication record. Candidates must hold an M.D., D.D.S., or D.V.M. degree; be a fellow, resident, or a postdoctoral researcher and have at least two years of postdoctoral research experience at the time of application; and be not more than ten years past their most recent doctorate degree. Candidates with a clinical degree not awarded in the U.S. or Canada must be fully licensed to practice in the U.S. or Canada or have completed a residency in the U.S. or Canada. Candidates must be citizens or permanent residents of the U.S. or Canada at the time of application.
