16 May NIH Lasker Clinical Research Scholars Program
The NIH announces this year’s Lasker Clinical Research Scholars Program. This is a competitive opportunity for early-stage physician-scientists to conduct independent clinical and translational research as tenure-track investigators at the NIH and in academia. It was established in 2011 to create career research opportunities for physician-scientists (it also includes dental and nurse scientists) and is targeted to outstanding post-fellowship physicians and other clinicians with strong research interests and credentials.
Funding provides full research and salary support for 5+ years at the NIH followed by three years in academia (up to $500,000/year) or continued appointment in the NIH intramural program. This program also allows for the opportunity for academic institutional affiliation while at the NIH. The deadline for applications is August 31, 2018. The general start date for the positions is summer 2019, but this is flexible. More information can be found at their website, or by email to Dr. Chuck Dearolf at LaskerScholar@nih.gov.
