The AACR-Millennium Fellowship in Prostate Cancer Research represents a joint effort to encourage and support a postdoctoral or clinical research fellow to conduct prostate cancer research and to establish a successful career path in this field. The research proposed for funding may be basic, translational, clinical or epidemiological in nature and must have direct applicability and relevance to prostate cancer.
The fellowship provides a one-year grant of $55,000 to support the salary and benefits of the fellow while working on mentored prostate cancer research. A partial amount of funds may be designated for non-personnel expenses, such as research/laboratory supplies, equipment, publication charges for manuscripts that pertain directly to the funded project and other research expenses.
It is anticipated that three fellowships will be funded.
Applicant Eligibility Criteria
Applicants must have a medical and/or doctoral degree (including Ph.D., M.D., D.O., D.C., N.D., D.D.S., D.V.M., Sc.D., D.N.S., Pharm.D., or equivalent doctoral degree) in a related field and not currently be a candidate for a further doctoral or professional degree.
At the start of the grant term on July 1, 2014, applicants must:
Be in the first five years of a postdoctoral or clinical research fellowship (i.e., must have started fellowship no earlier than July 2, 2009, and no later than July 1, 2014)
Work under the auspices of a mentor at an academic, medical, or research institution within the United States. There are no citizenship requirements; however, an applicant who is not a U.S. citizen or permanent resident, by submitting an application for this grant, assures that his/her visa status will provide sufficient time to complete the project and grant term within the United States.
For applicants possessing an M.D., clinical training time with no research involvement (e.g., residency training) is not included against the eligibility limit. Parental leave or other well justified leave from mentored research training for pressing personal or family situations of generally less than 12 months duration is also not included against the eligibility limit for all applicants.
Applicants whose experience exceeds the maximum but who believe they are eligible (e.g., residency training, some of their mentored research experience was in a field other than cancer research or there was a break in their career as described above) should contact AACR before submitting an application to verify their eligibility. Applicants who believe that they are at the level of postdoctoral or clinical research fellow, but hold a different title (e.g., M.D. with an instructor title), may be eligible and should contact AACR before submitting an application.
Employees or subcontractors of a U.S. government entity or for-profit private industry are not eligible.
AACR membership is required. Nonmembers interested in this grant opportunity must submit a satisfactory application for AACR associate membership by Friday, December 13, 2013. The application will be applied to 2013 membership dues.
All applicants with questions about eligibility should contact AACR before submitting an application.
Research Project Criteria
