The American Association for Cancer Research welcomes applications for its AACR-QuadW Foundation Fellowship for Clinical/Translational Sarcoma Research program, a joint effort aimed at encouraging a postdoctoral or clinical research fellow to pursue translational or clinical sarcoma research on the way to a career in the field.
The fellowship program will provide a grant of $50,000 over a year in support of the salary and benefits of the fellow as s/he works on a mentored sarcoma research project. A portion of the funds may be designated for non-personnel expenses, including research/laboratory supplies, equipment, publication charges for manuscripts that pertain directly to the funded project, and other research expenses. Research projects must be clinical or translational in nature and must have direct applicability and relevance to sarcoma.
To be eligible, applicants must have a doctoral degree (PhD, MD, MD/PhD, or equivalent) in a related field and not currently be a candidate for a further doctoral degree. At the start of the grant term on July 1, 2021, applicants must hold a mentored research position with the title of postdoctoral fellow, clinical research fellow, or the equivalent; have completed their most recent doctoral degree within the past five years (i.e., degree cannot have been conferred before July 1, 2016); and work under the auspices of a mentor at an academic, medical, or research institution anywhere in the world. Applicants with a medical degree must have completed their most recent doctoral degree or medical residency — whichever date is later — within the past five years.
