Charles A. King Trust Postdoctoral Research Fellowship Program – Clinical/Health Services Research

Funding Agency:
Medical Foundation, a Division of Health Resources in Action

Established in 1936, the Charles A. King Trust was created to “support and promote the investigation of human disease and the alleviation of human suffering through improved treatment.” In keeping with these principles, the King Trust today supports postdoctoral fellows in Basic Science and Clinical/Health Services Research.

The Charles A. King Trust Postdoctoral Research Fellowship Program is designed to support postdoctoral fellows and physician-scientists in non-profit academic, medical or research institutions in Massachusetts. Each applicant must be working under the supervision of an established scientist who is the designated Mentor. Two-year grants ranging from $104,008 to $117,760, inclusive of a $2,000 expense allowance, will be awarded September 1. Applicants must review the Guidelines for additional detail regarding the Program, including Eligibility Requirements, Review Criteria, and Submission Instructions. All relevant materials are accessible via the right panel.

The King Clinical Research Program supports clinical or health services research scientists in the early to mid-stages of their research training, with special attention to the critical period of mentored research after the completion of clinical training. Clinical and Health Services research funded by this program support human studies including physiological research, behavioral science and health education research, translational research (the application of bench research to patient care), epidemiological research, health policy, outcomes research, and population health, regardless of specialty or discipline. Research may take place in a broad range of settings including community sites. Research projects involving animal or cell culture models are not eligible in the Clinical/Health Services Research fellowship category and should be directed to the King Trust Basic Sciences category.
