V Scholar Program in cancer research; internal applications due March 14

OHSU has been invited by the V Foundation for Cancer Research to apply for their V Scholar Program, a program designed to identify, retain and further the careers of talented young faculty members. The award provides $200,000 over two years directly to young scientists who are developing their own independent laboratory research projects. These grants enable talented young scientists to establish their laboratories and gain a competitive edge necessary to earn additional funding from other sources. Funding is available for laboratory-based fundamental and translational research.

To be eligible, the candidate must have completed at least two years of fellowship training (at least one for M.D.s), hold a tenured track position (no more than five years since joining faculty, and less than ten since terminal degree), and must not have been promoted to associate professor.

Only one candidate may apply from OHSU. For more information, view this opportunity listing in the OHSU Funding Database (login required). If you would like to apply, please complete a limited submission form before the March 14, 2014 internal deadline.
