Postdoctoral Enrichment Program (PDEP) – Burroughs Wellcome Fund

Sponsor:

Burroughs Wellcome Fund

Deadline:

January 17, 2017 (4:00 pm ET)

Summary:

The Burroughs Wellcome Fund has created the Postdoctoral Enrichment Program (PDEP) to support early career scientists who are under-represented minorities (i.e. American Indian or Alaska Native, Black or African American, Hispanic, or Native Hawaiian or other Pacific Islander).
PDEP awards a total of $60,000 over three years to postdocs in biomedical research, who are citizens of the United States or Canada, and hosted at a degree-granting institution in the United States or Canada.

Funding through PDEP expressly supports participation in the following activities:

  • Opportunities for the PDEP postdoctoral fellow to enhance their research productivity. Examples include travel and attendance to workshops, courses, and trainings in new techniques; or meetings and events that launch new collaborations and knowledge transfer.
  • Opportunities for the PDEP mentor to develop and provide mentoring resources at their home institution, to increase the research productivity and long-term career success of the postdoctoral fellow. Examples include career guidance discussions, research management trainings, or professional development in grant writing, communication, and other skills demanded of future principle investigators.
  • Opportunities for the PDEP mentor to attend an annual workshop of PDEP mentors hosted by the Burroughs Wellcome Fund.
  • Opportunities for the PDEP postdoc-mentor pair to participate in a national peer network of PDEP fellows to foster inter-institutional collaboration and greater community engagement.

Eligibility:

Applicants for the Postdoctoral Enrichment Award:

  • must have no more than 36 months of postdoctoral research experience (in a research laboratory) at the time of application and not be more than 5 years from his/her Ph.D.
  • must be nominated by a qualified mentor at the degree-granting institution (an institution includes its affiliated graduate and medical schools, hospitals, and research institutions) where the applicant will conduct the postdoctoral/fellowship training. Applications must be approved by an official responsible for sponsored programs (generally from the grants office, office of research, or office of sponsored programs) at the degree-granting institution
  • must have secured a postdoctoral position with funding (including support by the mentor’s existing research grants) at a degree-granting institution in the United States or Canada and must begin the postdoctoral position on or by the designated award commencement date
    n must be underrepresented minorities (i.e. American Indian or Alaska Native, Black or African American, Hispanic, or Native Hawaiian or other Pacific Islander)
  • must be citizens of the United States or Canada (at the time of application)
  • must devote at least 75% of time to research
    Individual underrepresented minority postdoctoral fellows conducting biomedical or medical research are eligible to apply. The program targets postdoctoral fellows with Ph.D.s in the biomedical or medical sciences. Applicants with M.D. degrees who have secured a postdoctoral research appointment beyond clinical fellowship will be considered for this program. DDS, DVM, and PharmD candidates may be eligible, but should contact BWF prior to applying. Proposals in health services research or involving large-scale clinical trials are ineligible.

Available Funding:

$60,000 over three years

Postdoctoral Research Fellowships in Biology (PRFB) NSF-15-501

Sponsor: National Science Foundation

DEADLINE: 

January 8, 2015; November 3, 2015; First Tuesday in November Annually Thereafter

Summary:

The Directorate for Biological Sciences (BIO) awards Postdoctoral Research Fellowships in Biology to recent recipients of the doctoral degree for research and training in selected areas supported by BIO and with special goals for human resource development in biology. The fellowships encourage independence at an early stage of the research career to permit Fellows to pursue their research and training goals in the most appropriate research locations regardless of the availability of funding for the Fellows at that site. For FY 2015 and beyond, these BIO programs are (1) Broadening Participation of Groups Under-represented in Biology, (2) Research Using Biological Collections, and (3) National Plant Genome Initiative (NPGI) Postdoctoral Research Fellowships. These areas change periodically as new scientific and infrastructure opportunities present themselves. For this reason, this solicitation will be changed as necessary to reflect the areas being funded.

The fellowships are also designed to provide active mentoring of the Fellows by the sponsoring scientists who will benefit from having these talented young scientists in their research groups. The research and training plan of each fellowship must address important scientific questions within the scope of the BIO Directorate and the specific guidelines in this fellowship program solicitation. Because the fellowships are offered to postdoctoral scientists only early in their careers, NSF encourages doctoral advisors to discuss the availability of these postdoctoral fellowships in biology with their graduate students early in their doctoral programs to ensure potential applicants may take advantage of this funding opportunity. Fellowships are awards to individuals, not institutions, and are administered by the Fellows.

Available Funding:

The award amount is set for postdoctoral fellowships based on the duration of the award. FastLane generates the budget; applicants do not need to enter any budget information. The research and training plan should make clear the requested duration.
