Charles A. King Trust Postdoctoral Research Fellowship Program – Basic Science

Health Resources in Action (HRiA)/The Medical Foundation

Amount: $117,760/2 year

Deadline: March 4, 2020

 

Summary: 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 primary goal of the Charles A. King Trust Postdoctoral Fellowship Program is to support research that focuses on the causes of human disease with the mission of improving its treatment. To meet this goal the Program provides vital support to prepare postdoctoral fellows for academic careers as successful independent investigators in biomedical research.

The King Basic Science Award Program supports scientists in the mid to late stages of their postdoctoral research training in basic science research. Basic Science research funded by this program has contributed to knowledge that has significantly impacted biomedical advances and contributed to the subsequent development of an impressive host of therapeutic interventions spanning the entire range of human disease categories. Please note, clinical research proposals involving human studies are not allowed and proposals involving patient-derived tissue or data, or health services data, should be directed towards the King Trust Clinical and Health Services Research Fellowship Program.

Eligibility: Basic Science Applicants must meet the following eligibility requirements by the dates indicated:
1. By the funding start date (September 1, 2020), hold a Ph.D., M.D., D.M.D., M.D./Ph.D., or comparable degree and work in an academic or medical research institution in the state of Massachusetts;
2. By the funding start date, must have completed at least three (3) years and no more than five (5) years of full-time postdoctoral research experience. Eligible applicants will have begun their full-time postdoctoral work between September 1, 2015 and August 31, 2017;
– Postdoctoral research experience is defined as full-time employment, after receiving one’s first doctoral degree, as a postdoctoral fellow in a research laboratory or similar professional experience (e.g. positions in biotechnology and pharmaceutical industries) five full days each week. All postdoctoral research experience completed domestically and abroad is counted.
3. By the funding start date, must commit at least 90% time to research;
4. By the application deadline (March 4, 2020), the applicant must have at least one primary, peer reviewed research article from their postdoctoral work. Articles in press or submitted for review, should be publicly available as a preprint (e.g. BioRxiv).
5. By the funding start date, apply under the guidance of a Mentor who is an established investigator with an active research program. Mentors are expected to be involved in the planning, execution, and supervision of the proposed research;
6. Only one applicant per Mentor may apply per application cycle; there are no institutional limitations on the number of applicants who may submit applications;
7. United States citizenship is not required; visa documentation is not required.

Amount: $200,000

Deadline: March 16, 2020

Indirect Cost: 0%

 

Summary: According to the American Cancer Society, Cancers of the colon and rectum have been declining in older adults in recent decades and have always been considered rare in young people.

Eligibility:

– Researchers with PhD, MD, MD/PhD or equivalent degrees
– Researchers from US non-profit institutions (including academic and research institutions, hospitals and medical centers) are eligible to apply
– Early career researchers and young investigators at the assistant professor or equivalent level
– Senior researchers who have shifted their area of interest toward colorectal cancer research
– Researchers at any academic level who need seed funding to test an innovative hypothesis
– Researchers from for-profit institutions or government institutions will NOT be considered
– Researchers need not be United States citizens. However, research must be conducted in the United States.
