The CRI Irvington Postdoctoral Fellowship Program supports qualified young scientists at leading universities and research centers around the world who wish to receive training in fundamental immunology or cancer immunology.
The Institute seeks hypothesis-driven, mechanistic studies in both fundamental immunology and tumor immunology. The applicant and sponsor should make every effort to demonstrate the potential of the proposed studies to directly impact our understanding of the immune system's role in cancer.
The fellowship provides a stipend of $55,000 for the first year, $57,000 for the second year, and $59,000 for the third year.
In addition, an allowance of $1,500 per year is allotted to the host institution for use at the sponsor's discretion to help pay for the fellow's research supplies, travel to scientific meetings, and/or health insurance.
Applicants for the CRI Irvington Postdoctoral Fellowship Program must be working in areas directly related to immunology or cancer immunology. An eligible project must fall into the broad field of immunology with relevance to solving the cancer problem.
Applicants must have a doctoral degree by the date of award activation and must conduct their proposed research under a sponsor who holds a formal appointment as an assistant professor or higher rank at the host institution.
Applicants with 5 or more years of relevant postdoctoral experience at the time of award activation are not eligible, with the exception of M.D. applicants, who should not include years of residency in this calculation.
Only in exceptional circumstances will applicants who have already spent 3 or more years in a sponsor's laboratory by the start date of fellowship be considered for a fellowship award.
The fellowship can be performed in the United States or abroad, but must take place at a non-profit institution. There are no citizenship restrictions.
Only one fellow per sponsor may apply per application round, and faculty sponsors may not have more than three CRI-supported fellows at any time.
