National Science Foundation

Small Business Postdoctoral Research Diversity Fellowship

Description:

The Small Business Postdoctoral Research Diversity Fellowship program aims to encourage creative and highly-trained recipients of doctoral degrees in NSF-supported science, technology, engineering and mathematical disciplines to engage in hands-on research projects in their areas of expertise at the kind of small innovative businesses that historically have fueled the nation’s economic regime.  

This fellowship program offers active Phase II Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) participating companies the opportunity to attract top scientific and technological talent at a fraction of the usual cost.  At the same time, the program recruits postdoctoral fellows from underrepresented groups to work for at least a year outside an academic setting, contributing to cutting-edge research aimed at promoting scientific excellence and strengthening our nation’s technological prowess. 

Each research fellow will receive a stipend of $75,000 plus health insurance benefits.  The host company is responsible for a yearly $2,500 administrative fee payable to ASEE.  With generous support from the National Science Foundation (NSF), the program will support 50 positions for a two year appointment. The program is administered by the American Society for Engineering Education (ASEE).

Qualifications:

Open to US citizens, nationals, and permanent residents. More details in the Apply link below.

Centers for Disease Control Laboratory Leadership Service

American Biological Safety Association (ABSA) Fellowship

Description:

CDC Laboratory Leadership Service (LLS) Fellowship Program
Application Period: April 20-July 17, 2017
Accepting Applications for Class of 2018

If you or someone you know is working in the field of laboratory science and interested in pursuing a public health laboratory career, CDC's Laboratory Leadership Service (LLS) fellowship program provides an invaluable opportunity!

The LLS program seeks rising laboratory scientists to participate in this 2-year laboratory training fellowship that provides a strong foundation for future leadership and management. LLS combines competency-based laboratory training with practical, applied investigations and public health service. LLS fellows work in CDC and state and local public health laboratories, serving the agency and its partners by applying creative and effective strategies to real world public health scenarios. LLS is led by the Division of Scientific Education and Professional Development (DSEPD) in the Center for Surveillance, Epidemiology, and Laboratory Services (CSELS).

This fellowship:

  • Provides high-quality training that focuses on biosafety, quality management systems, and management and leadership competencies.
  • Includes a unique curriculum, core activities for learning, and mentorship to focus on the requirements of public health laboratories.
  • Aligns with CDC's Epidemic Intelligence Service (EIS) program to promote interdisciplinary training, applied learning, and networking between laboratory scientists and epidemiologists.

Qualifications:

LLS is open to scientists who hold a doctoral-level degree in a public health laboratory-related discipline and have 2 years of post-graduate laboratory experience. Other health professionals are welcome to apply but must also hold an appropriate doctoral-level degree. Applicants must be U.S. citizens or U.S. permanent residents and willing to commit to a 2-year fellowship.

Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center (WA) - Infectious Disease

Postdoctoral Research Fellow

Description:

We are seeking outstanding scientists interested in conducting cutting-­‐edge research into fundamental biological questions.

At Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, home to three Nobel laureates, interdisciplinary teams of world-­‐renowned scientists seek new and innovative ways to prevent, diagnose and treat cancer, HIV/AIDS and other life-­‐threatening diseases. Fred Hutch’s pioneering work in bone marrow transplantation led to the development of immunotherapy, which harnesses the power of the immune system to treat cancer with minimal side effects. An independent, nonprofit research institute based in Seattle, Fred Hutch houses the nation’s first and largest cancer prevention research program, as well as the clinical coordinating center of the Women’s Health Initiative and the international headquarters of the HIV Vaccine Trials Network.

OPEN POST-DOCTORAL RESEARCH POSITION IN VIRAL INFECTION MODELING

A Postdoctoral Research Fellow position is available immediately in the Infectious Disease Sciences (IDS) Program in the Vaccine and Infectious Disease Division (VIDD). The successful applicant will work with Dr. Joshua T. Schiffer to develop mathematical models that focus on optimizing treatment of viral infections, and in particular curative strategies for HIV including but not limited to therapeutic vaccination, latency reversal agents, neutralizing antibody delivery, CAR T cells and anti-­‐proliferative agents. He/She will also collaborate with laboratory-­‐based virologists, immunologists, oncologists, and clinical investigators from VIDD, to generate datasets appropriate for model testing and validation. The successful applicant will interact with Fred Hutch based faculty outside of VIDD, plus members of the University of Washington faculty in the Division of Virology and Division of Infectious Diseases, and Department of Biostatistics.

Qualifications:

Suitable applicants should have a PhD degree in statistics/biostatistics, computer science, applied mathematics, biomedical engineering, physics, computational biology, evolutionary biology or other fields with strong quantitative training. Strong programming skills in C/C++, Matlab and/or R are required. Previous experience with differential equation based or agent based models are a plus.
