The American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) is accepting applications to support postdoctoral or clinical research fellows to conduct lymphoma research and to establish a successful career path in this field. The research proposed for funding may be basic, translational, clinical, or epidemiological in nature and must have direct applicability and relevance to lymphoma. Fellowships will be presented in 2018 for:

  • AACR-AstraZeneca Lymphoma Research Fellowship (two)
  • AACR-Takeda Oncology Research Fellowship (one)

These fellowships provide two-year grants of $110,000 to support the salary and benefits of the fellow while working on mentored lymphoma research. A partial amount of funds may be designated for non-personnel expenses, such as research/laboratory supplies, equipment, publication charges for manuscripts that pertain directly to the funded project, and other research expenses. Applicants must have a doctoral degree (including PhD, MD, DO, DC, ND, DDS, DVM, ScD, DNS, PharmD, or equivalent) in a related field and not currently be a candidate for a further doctoral degree. At the start of the grant term on July 1, 2018, applicants must hold a full-time, mentored research position with the title of postdoctoral fellow, clinical research fellow, or the equivalent. Eligible applicants must have completed their most recent doctoral degree within the past five years (i.e., degree cannot have been conferred before July 2, 2013; the formal date of receipt of doctoral degree is the date the degree was conferred, as indicated on your diploma and/or transcript); or applicants with a medical degree must have completed his or her most recent doctoral degree or medical residency - whichever date is later - within the past five years (time spent in medical specialty or subspecialty training is not considered part of medical residency and will be counted against the five-year window). Also, applicants must work under the auspices of a mentor at an academic, medical, or research institution. An exception to the five-year window may be granted for parental leave or other well justified leave from research for pressing personal or family situations of generally less than 12 months duration. AACR membership is required. Nonmembers interested in this grant opportunity must submit a satisfactory application for AACR Associate Membership by Thursday, November 16, 2017. Investigators may submit only one application for the AACR Lymphoma Research Fellowships but may concurrently apply for other AACR grants. Any individual who currently holds an active AACR grant may not apply. Investigators currently or previously holding the rank of instructor, adjunct professor, assistant professor, research assistant professor, the equivalent or higher are not eligible. Indirect costs are not allowed.

Application Deadline: November 16, 2017 at 1:00pm ET. Award notifications made March 2018; grant recipients must attend the Grants Reception and Dinner to formally accept the grant. Award start date July 1, 2018. Application Guidelines: http://www.aacr.org/Funding/Shared%20Documents/2018%20Lymphoma%20PG.pdf
