← Previous entry Next entry →


Author: Dr. David Weiss | Category: Opportunities | December 21, 2015

The National Cancer Institute is supporting a new award for late-stage graduate students interested in a career in cancer research. 

This award (F99/K00) has the following stated purpose:

"…. the NCI Predoctoral to Postdoctoral Fellow Transition Award (F99/K00) is to encourage and retain outstanding graduate students who have demonstrated potential and interest in pursuing careers as independent cancer researchers. The award will facilitate the transition of talented graduate students into successful cancer research postdoctoral appointments, and provide opportunities for career development activities relevant to their long-term career goals of becoming independent cancer researchers.

The mechanism is modeled after the popular K99/R00 mechanism that transitions postdoctoral fellows into faculty positions.

The link to the RFA is: The NCI Predoctoral to Postdoctoral Fellow Transition Award (F99/K00)

Letters of intent are due Jan. 19 and the application deadline is Feb. 19. U.S. citizens and non-citizens are eligible to apply. 

Both the Graduate School and the Office of Postdoctoral Affairs stand ready to assist students that are interested in submitting an application for this award.
