American Society for Radiation Oncology Junior Faculty Career Research Training Award
This award was created to stimulate interest in radiation research early in junior faculty’s careers by offering them the opportunity to have focused time for research projects in radiation oncology, biology, physics or outcomes/health services.
You are eligible if:
You are a board-eligible physician or physicist in radiation oncology or a radiobiologist within the first three years of your junior faculty appointment.
Your institution is recognized as providing a rich environment for career development and possesses qualified faculty in clinical, translational or basic research to serve as mentors.
You have found a primary mentor who, together with you, is responsible for the planning, direction and execution of the program.
In addition, the mentor and a responsible member of the institution/department must demonstrate, in writing, a commitment to your development as a productive, independent investigator.
Each year, two junior faculty are selected for this award, which provides $100,000 annually for two years. The second year of funding is contingent upon the recipient meeting all the award requirements at the completion of the first year. A third year of support may be available, but it is competitive with new applicants.
At least 75 percent of the recipient’s full-time professional effort must be devoted to the goals of this award. The remainder may be devoted to clinical, teaching or other research pursuits consistent with the objectives of the award. The successful candidate is expected, toward the end of the award period, to apply for grant support through NIH or other national funding mechanisms, such as K08, K23 or equivalent awards.
Paper applications will no longer be accepted.
The application deadline for this award is 11:59pm EST on March 28, 2014.
The start date for 2014 awards will be July 1. For any questions please email us.
2014 American Association of Physicists in Medicine Graduate Fellowship
Deadline: April 17, 2014
The fellowship is awarded for the first two years of graduate study leading to a doctoral degree in Medical Physics. A stipend of $13,000 per year, plus tuition support not exceeding $5,000 per year is assigned to the recipient. The amount of tuition support granted will be at the discretion of the AAPM. The award will be paid to the recipient’s institution and distributed in accordance with the institution’s disbursement procedures. It is AAPM’s policy that none of the funds may be diverted to the institution’s “facilities”, “administrative”, or other overhead categories and the full $13,000 stipend must be provided to the recipient.
Graduate study must be undertaken in a Medical Physics Doctoral Degree program accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Medical Physics Education Programs, Inc. (CAMPEP). Additional information on CAMPEP accredited programs can be found at http://www.campep.org.
Sponsored by the AAPM Education and Research Fund
Each applicant must be a graduate of an undergraduate program in physics or equivalent majors (e.g. engineering-physics, math-physics, or nuclear engineering or applied physics) from an accredited university or college in North America. The undergraduate grade point average must be greater than 3.5 (Based on a 4.0). Each applicant must have submitted an application for graduate study to one of the accredited programs with subsequent acceptance.
American Association of Physicists in Medicine Research Seed Funding Grant
Deadline: March 10, 2014
The Research Seed Funding Grant. Two $25,000 grants will be awarded to provide funds to develop exciting investigator-initiated concepts, which will hopefully lead to successful longer term project funding from the NIH or equivalent funding sources. Funding for grant recipients will begin on July 1 of the award year. Research results will be submitted for presentation at future AAPM meetings.
The award is not intended to provide salary support for the applicant, however any other research-related expenses, including travel to scientific meetings, will be supported. At the end of the 12-month period a report should be forwarded to the AAPM, along with itemized expenses. The award will not support indirect costs. Any unspent funds should be returned to the AAPM.
Sponsored by the AAPM Education and Research Fund
