AACR Clinical and Translational Cancer Research Fellowships
The AACR Clinical and Translational Cancer Research Fellowship represents a joint effort to encourage and support a postdoctoral or clinical research fellow to conduct clinical and/or translational cancer research and to establish a successful career path in this field. The research proposed for funding may be translational or clinical in nature.
This fellowship provides a two-year grant of $110,000 to support the salary and benefits of the fellow while working on mentored clinical and/or translational cancer research. A partial amount of funds may be designated for non-personnel expenses, such as research/laboratory supplies, equipment, publication charges for manuscripts that pertain directly to the funded project, and other research expenses.
It is anticipated that at least one fellowship will be funded.
Application Deadline: Dec. 12, 2017
At the start of the grant term on July 1, 2018, applicants must hold a mentored research position with the title of postdoctoral fellow, clinical research fellow, or the equivalent; have completed their most recent doctoral degree within the past five years (i.e., degree cannot have been conferred before July 1, 2013); and work under the auspices of a mentor at an academic, medical, or research institution anywhere in the world.
Applicants must have a doctoral degree (including PhD, MD, DO, DC, ND, DDS, DVM, ScD, DNS, PharmD, or equivalent) in a related field and not currently be a candidate for a further doctoral degree.
If eligibility is based on a future position, the position must be confirmed at the time of application and CANNOT be contingent upon receiving this grant.
Applicants with a medical degree must have completed their most recent doctoral degree or medical residency - whichever date is later - within the past five years (time spent in medical specialty or subspecialty training is not considered part of medical residency and will be counted against the five-year window.
Investigators may submit only one application for the AACR Clinical and Translational Cancer Research Fellowships but may concurrently apply for other AACR grants. However, applicants are expected to accept the first grant they are awarded. Individuals may accept and hold only one AACR grant at a time.
