Postdoc Opportunity for Funding through Burroughs Wellcome CASI Program
The Burroughs Wellcome Fund’s Career Awards at the Scientific Interface (CASI) program is accepting Letters of Intent (LOIs). LOIs require submission of a 4,000 character-essay and a letter of reference. These awards provide up to $560,000 over five years to bridge advanced postdoctoral training and the first three years of faculty service. The specific target group are researchers who have transitioned from graduate work in the physical/mathematical/computational sciences or engineering into postdoctoral work in the biological sciences. These awards are open to U.S. and Canadian citizens, permanent residents, and temporary residents.
NOTE: postdoctoral stipends increased to $80,000 (initial year) and $85,000 (second year) with up to $5,000/year allowed for childcare expenses.
