American Cancer Society International Fellowships for Beginning Investigators
The objectives of this 12 month ACSBI fellowship, of a value of USD 50,000, are to foster a bi-directional flow of research knowledge, experience, expertise and innovation between countries and to advance the academic career development of beginning cancer investigators through clinical, behavioural and basic research projects.
Closing date: 1 November
The ACSBI fellowship emphasizes the transfer of knowledge from the host institute to others at the home institute. It offers the fellow the opportunity to be mentored by experts in the chosen field, receive hands on experience in clinical, behavioural or basic research, intellectual stimulation, research guidance, narrative transfer and many other opportunities to evolve scientifically and academically.
The goals include not only developing future leaders in cancer research in low/middle income countries, but also facilitating a global effort in cancer prevention and control. This will be done by developing the necessary intellectual infrastructure in home countries (since ACSBI fellows must return to their home institute), encouraging collaborative interactions to facilitate interdisciplinary basic and applied cancer research, and establishing a network of researchers and translational scientists for rapid dissemination of new knowledge and technology in developing and sharing of best practices.
• Be a beginning investigator or clinician in the early stages of their independent investigator career and must possess a terminal, advanced degree with a desire to become an independent investigator
• Applicants are to be in the early phases of their career and no longer under research mentoring.
• Hold an academic university or hospital position with an explicit commitment to return to the home institute
• Conduct the research at not-for-profit institutions. Please note that this is not a first post doctoral fellowship
•Fellowships cannot be granted to candidates who are already physically present at the proposed host institute whilst their applications are under consideration.
Note: This is not a clinical training fellowship
