Sallie Rosen Kaplan Fellowship for Women in Basic, Clinical, Epidemiological Or Prevention Science
The Sallie Rosen Kaplan Fellowship for Women Scientists in Cancer Research is made possible by a generous bequest to the Foundation for NIH (FNIH). This is a competitive program for postdoctoral fellows applying to train in any of the National Cancer Institute’s intramural research settings, including basic, clinical, epidemiological, and prevention science.
The postdoctoral fellowship experience at the NCI can serve as a first postdoctoral training assignment, or offer more experienced postdoctoral scientists an opportunity to further their training in more advanced methods, to acquire new research capabilities, to make changes in the direction of their research, or to receive training in fundamental sciences and clinical disciplines for the purpose of enhancing the transfer of biotechnology to cancer clinical programs.
Program duration is normally 2 to 5 years. Fellows will be supported by a Cancer Research Training Award (CRTA), with an augmented stipend in the first year provided by the FNIH. The CRTA Fellowship stipend range is $46,200 to $78,000 commensurate with level of experience. Standard self and family health insurance is provided and high option coverage is available.
Candidates for the Sallie Rosen Kaplan Fellowship must be female, must possess a doctoral degree, and must have less than 5 years postdoctoral research experience. U.S. citizenship or U.S. permanent residency (green card) is required. Finalists for the Kaplan fellowship will be notified by March 2009 and winners announced by May 2009. To be eligible for the Sallie Rosen Kaplan Fellowship award, the starting date of any NCI fellowship must be no earlier than December 15, 2008.
