Call for internal submissions:
The NCI Predoctoral to Postdoctoral Fellow Transition Award (F99/K00)
The purpose of the NCI Predoctoral to Postdoctoral Fellow Transition Award (F99/K00) is to encourage and retain outstanding graduate students recognized by their institutions for their high potential and strong interest in pursuing careers as independent cancer researchers. The award will facilitate the transition of talented graduate students into successful cancer research postdoctoral appointments, and provide opportunities for career development activities relevant to their long-term career goals of becoming independent cancer researchers.
Please note: Harvard University may nominate only one candidate for this award. Therefore, an internal faculty committee will review candidates to select the final nominee.
All materials for the internal selection process must be submitted by September 28, 2020 at noon.
Note: the Harvard nominee will need to assemble more extensive materials for submission of the full application by the deadline of November 18, 2020.
