The CHOP Research Institute has partnered with Penn to create the Postdoctoral Research Fellowship for Academic Diversity at CHOP. This partnership allows diversity fellows from CHOP and Penn to form a cohesive cohort that takes advantage of programming and support at both institutions. CHOP diversity fellows are eligible to participate in all programming from Penn’s Biomedical Postdoctoral Programs Office.
CHOP is seeking late stage graduate students or early stage postdoctoral fellows to apply for this fellowship. Postdoctoral fellows who have been at CHOP less than one year at the time of application are eligible, however preference will be given to external candidates. Please see the attached program description for eligibility requirements.
Successful applicants will be funded by The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia Research Institute and supported by The CHOP Office of Postdoctoral Affairs. Support will include salary (starting at $50,000 for new postdoctoral fellows with no previous postdoctoral experience, increasing in $2,000 increments annually) and benefits, and provides an annual allowance for travel ($2,000) and supplies ($5,000), and a one- time relocation allowance for external candidates (up to $5,000). Support will be provided for up to three years and participants will be able to take part in all Penn-sponsored programming as well as CHOP-specific programming organized by the CHOP Office of Postdoctoral Affairs.
To be eligible for the CHOP fellowship a CHOP-based research mentor will need to be selected for the postdoctoral lab. External candidates may use the Investigator Directory to search for faculty based on area of study http://www.research.chop.edu/people/keyword.
Completed applications are due Nov 2, 2018.
