2016 Faculty Scholars Program

2016 Faculty Scholars Program2016 Faculty Scholars Program

This program from the Howard Hughes Medical Institute, Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, and the Simons Foundation, is intended for basic researchers and physician scientists who have already demonstrated significant research accomplishments and show potential to make unique and important contributions to their fields. Scholars will apply molecular, genetic, computational and theoretical approaches to fundamental problems in diverse areas of biology. Those conducting research at the interface of the biological and physical sciences are especially encouraged to apply as are physician scientists and others studying biological questions emerging from and applicable to global human health problems, including malaria, tuberculosis, HIV, and other diseases that disproportionately affect individuals living in low resource settings. Clinical trials and research on health education, health care delivery, or health services are not eligible fields. Tenure-track as an assistant professor or higher academic rank, with more than 4 but not more than 10 years of post training, professional experience are eligible. Awards will range from $100K to $400K per year, over five years. Expenses covered by the grant include: partial salary for faculty; salary for lab personnel; equipment; supplies; travel; publications. Researchers with faculty appointments may apply directly; prior institutional endorsement is not part of the application process.

Deadline: July 28, 2015
