The Helen Hay Whitney Foundation is offering Postdoctoral Research Fellowships to students pursuing studies in biomedical sciences. The Fellowship program is open for students of any nationality. The Foundation supports postdoctoral research training in all basic biomedical sciences and hence interested candidates can apply for the fellowship program.
Founded in 1947, the Helen Hay Whitney Foundation has been stimulating and supporting research in the area of all basic biomedical sciences. It was originally established to sustain research in the area of rheumatic fever and rheumatic heart disease which was later expanded to include diseases of connective tissue and eventually to all basic biomedical sciences. The Foundation offers financial support of three-year duration to individuals who are planning careers in biological or medical research. Under this program, approximately 24 three-year research fellowships are awarded annually. The fellowships are offered to pupils for early postdoctoral training only and therefore applications from established scientists or advanced fellows are not eligible for consideration here.
Candidates who hold, or are in the final stages of attaining a PhD, MD, or equivalent degree and are seeking to start postdoctoral training in basic biomedical research are eligible to apply for this fellowship. This three years program is subjected to consideration by the Foundation’s Scientific Advisory Committee based on the satisfactory performance of candidates. Candidates must keep in mind that one and two-year fellowships are not considered here. Candidates may activate their fellowship anytime from April 1, through September 1, 2020. The Foundation will provide funds for travel to the fellowship location at the time of activation of the fellowship. There is also a research allowance and stipend facility for the candidates.
