Interactive Webinar on BWF Career Awards at the Scientific Interface (CASI)
Burroughs Wellcome Fund (BWF) Career Awards at the Scientific Interface (CASI) provide $500,000 over five years to bridge advanced postdoctoral training and the first three years of faculty service. These awards are open to U.S. and Canadian citizens, permanent residents, and temporary residents.
Learn more and join us as we welcome Dr. Louis Muglia, MD PhD, President and CEO of Burroughs Wellcome Fund with Kelly Rose, CASI Program Officer, and Melanie Scott, Senior Program Associate, who will be on the webinar to talk to interested Vanderbilt applicants about the process.

These grants are intended to foster the early career development of researchers who have transitioned or are transitioning from undergraduate and/or graduate work in the physical/mathematical/computational sciences or engineering into postdoctoral work in the biological sciences, and who are dedicated to pursuing a career in academic research.
Scientific advances such as genomics, quantitative structural biology, imaging techniques, and modeling of complex systems have created opportunities for exciting research careers at the interface between the physical/computational sciences and the biological sciences. Tackling key problems in biology will require scientists trained in areas such as chemistry, physics, applied mathematics, computer science, and engineering.
The deadlines are for Letter of Intent (LOI) and application include:
- Pre proposal: Sept 1, 2020
- Invites for full proposal: Nov 20, 2020
- Full Proposal: Jan 8, 2021
