2013 Rosalind Franklin Young Investigator Award
Peter and Patricia Gruber Foundation
The application deadline is June 8, 2012.
To honor the ground-breaking contributions of Dr. Rosalind Franklin in genetics research and to inspire and support new generations of women in the field, the Peter and Patricia Gruber Foundation will fund two career development research awards of $75,000 each to be given over three years ($25,000 per year) to two female geneticists from anywhere in the world, who are in their first three years of an independent faculty-level position in any area of genetics. One award will fund genetics research in human and non-human mammals and the other will fund genetics research in model organisms. Young female geneticists from any country worldwide are welcome to apply. The award may be used for any purpose that advances the genetics research of the recipients except for salary support of the recipients themselves.
The application deadline is Friday, June 8, 2012. Applicants must also include a Curriculum Vita and two letters of recommendation.
The awards are administered and the recipients are chosen every three years by a joint committee appointed by the Genetics Society of America (GSA), and the American Society of Human Genetics (ASHG).
Both the GSA and the ASHG encourage applications from women scientists world-wide.
Recipients will be notified of their award in July 2012. The recipients will be announced at the 62nd ASHG Annual Meeting in San Francisco, California on Friday, November 9, 2012 in conjunction with the Gruber award ceremony, and will be invited to present during one of the sessions at the meeting. The model organism winner will also be recognized at an appropriate GSA conference.
