The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation’s Postdoctoral Research Fellowship Award program supports the training of postdocs in new research areas and methods related to CF as well as the collection of data that can be sued to enable their transition into an independent research career. Research projects proposed through the program should seek to develop new information that contributes to the understanding and basic etiology and pathogenesis of cystic fibrosis. Preference will be given to recent graduates and those just beginning their research careers.
Fellowship awards may be approved for up to a two-year period, with funding for year two contingent on submission and approval of a renewal progress report and the availability of funds.
Fellows will receive salary support of up to $50,000, with an additional $8,850 for expenses in year one, and up to $52,000 with an additional $9,200 in year two. Research and travel expenses of up to $4,250 also are available for each year of the award.
To be eligible, applicants must be a citizen or permanent resident of the United States, or a non-resident working in a U.S.-based lab.
