Translational Medicine Postdoctoral Fellowship

The PhRMA Foundation’s Postdoctoral Fellowship in Translational Medicine supports individuals (U.S. and non-U.S. citizens) engaged in a multidisciplinary, collaborative research training program at an accredited U.S. university that will extend their credentials in translational medicine.

Application Deadline: February 1, 2024 @ 12:00 p.m. (noon) Eastern Time (ET)

Areas of Interest

Applicants should work with clinical collaborators to identify unmet clinical needs. Proposals should integrate innovative technologies, with advanced biological, chemical, diagnostic, and pharmacological sciences and engineering methodologies in areas that include but not are limited to:

  • Genetics (Molecular, Pharmaco-, Population, Medical)
  • Genomics (Functional, Structural, Toxico-, Pharmaco-, Comparative)
  • Systems (Biology and Pharmacology)
  • Pathways and Networks
  • Integrative Biology
  • Modeling and Simulation
  • Target Identification and Validation
  • Biomarker Identification and Validation
  • Molecular Epidemiology
  • Imaging
  • Disease Modeling
Eligibility Requirements
  • Applicants (U.S. and non-U.S. citizens) must currently be in a PhD and/or MS degree-granting accredited U.S. university.
  • Applicants must have a firm commitment from a research supervisor or sponsor at their university.
  • Applicants must hold a PhD, PharmD, MD or appropriate terminal research doctorate. If you do not hold one at the time of application submission, please state in your extended letter when you expect to receive it, as it must be received before funding can begin. Funding can begin as early as July 1, 2024, or as late as December 1, 2024.
  • Applicants must be within their first five years of postdoctoral study at the time of award activation.
  • Applicants who are applying for funds to support postdoctoral work in the laboratory where their graduate work was performed will be given lower preference. One of the objectives of this fellowship is to gain new skills and therefore an ideal candidate will be conducting their research in a new laboratory and not where their graduate work was performed.
  • The Foundation will not consider multiple applications for the same or similar efforts on the same project. If multiple applicants are submitting proposed efforts on the same project, the efforts must be separate activities and not duplicative. This pertains to applications in both categories of our translational medicine program (postdoctoral fellowships and faculty starter grants).
Amount Description
  • The PhRMA Foundation Postdoctoral Fellowship in Translational Medicine provides $60,000 in stipend support per year for 12, 18, or 24 months.
