Scholars must have a faculty sponsor (required) and may recruit a co-sponsor from a different field (optional). Alternatively, scholars may focus their postdoctoral training in a field or discipline different from their graduate training.
Scholarships will be awarded annually. The selected scholars will be provided funding for two years. The funding is to be utilized for payments toward tuition, salary, and health benefits. In addition the scholars meet for quarterly luncheons, visit each others labs to learn about different areas of study and research techniques, develop skills to communicate with a non-scientific audience, and present "elevator pitches" of their research aims and accomplishments to the Executive Committee.
Candidates in a variety of disciplines will be considered: basic and clinical neurosciences, biomedical sciences, physical sciences, social sciences, engineers and experts in human behavior from the fields of education, law, business, and humanities.
Women and under-represented minority postdocs are encouraged to apply.
Applications are due on September 1, 2016 and the awardees will be announced in December 2016.
