The Burroughs Wellcome Fund’s Career Awards at the Scientific Interface are designed to provide funding to bridge advanced postdoctoral training and the first three years of faculty service for researchers who have transitioned or are transitioning from undergraduate 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. This program provides up to $500,000 over five years.

Pre-proposal deadline: September 3, 2013
