The New York Stem Cell Foundation (NYSCF) has released RFA for Postdoctoral Fellowship
The goal of this award is to promote research on stem cells derived from human and model organisms that will advance the understanding and eventual use of stem cells for the treatment of human diseases.
The fellowship will provide an annual stipend of $50,000, plus $2,500 for computers and travel expenditure, (but no institutional overhead) and will be awarded for 2 years, with the possibility of extension for a 3rd year depending on the progress.
Applicants must have a MD pr PhD degree.
Deadline for application: Before 5:00 pm (EST) on Jan 18 by email to firstname.lastname@example.org
