Life Sciences Research Foundation
Postdoctoral Fellowship Program




Fellowship Eligibility. Three-year fellowships will be awarded on a competitive basis to graduates of medical and graduate schools in the biological sciences holding M.D., Ph.D., D.V.M. or D.D.S. degrees. Awards will be based solely on the quality of the individual applicant's previous accomplishments, and on the merit of the proposal for postdoctoral research. Persons doing a second postdoc are eligible only if they are transferring to a different supervisor's laboratory and embarking on a new project not connected to their previous research. All U.S. citizens are eligible to apply with no geographic restriction on the laboratory of their choice. Foreign applicants will be eligible for study in U.S. laboratories. LSRF fellows must carry out their research at nonprofit institutions. This fellowship cannot be used to support research that has any patent commitment or other kind of agreement with a commercial profit-making company. LSRF fellows can change projects, laboratories, and/or institutions during the fellowship as long as the eligibility rules listed here are not violated. A person holding a faculty appointment is not eligible to apply for an LSRF fellowship.


Selection. A panel of biological scientists will judge and select applications once each year.


The deadline for applications is October 1.

Awards will be announced from March to May, for funding as early as June 1.


Stipends. The fellowship award is $57,000 per year and is meant to be a minigrant. LSRF keeps $1000 for administrative expenses and passes the rest to the fellow.  Effective June 1, 2009, the salary scale begins at $43,000 for a first-year postdoctoral, $45,000 for a second year, and $47,000 thereafter. The fellow, not the advisor, will control expenditure of the remainder. It can be used for fringe benefits (up to $2,000/year), travel to the host institution, travel to visit the sponsor and to the LSRF annual meeting. However, its main purpose is to support the fellow's research expenses. The LSRF does not award an institutional allowance for overhead.


NOTICE:  The LSRF website is closed for applications.  We will open for submissions on September 10, 2009. The application deadline is October 1, 2009.
