Faculty fellowships available through the Program for Faculty Development and Diversity

Posted September 14, 2010

[UPDATE: The deadline for applying for a PFDD Faculty Fellowship has been extended to November 5.]

The Harvard Catalyst Program for Faculty Development and Diversity (PFDD) is currently accepting applications for its Faculty Fellowship program. These two-year, $50,000-per-year fellowships help junior investigators launch their independent research and academic careers, particularly in clinical and translational research, by freeing them from clinical or teaching demands at a key point in their careers. The fellows are required to devote appropriate time toward their career development, to meet regularly with their mentors, and to present at the annual Minority Health Policy Meeting.

Learn more about what past PFDD fellows have done with this program’s support.

Applications for these fellowships are due on November 5, 2010. All applicants must hold a doctoral degree (e.g., MD, PhD, DO, DMD, DDS) and a Harvard appointment at the level of instructor or assistant professor. The program will also consider applications from clinical or research fellows who are in the process of appointment/promotion to instructor and/or assistant professor at Harvard.

For more information, or to apply, visit the PFDD website, or contact Veronica Meade-Kelly (E-mail, 617-432-4698).

The Harvard Medical School Office of Diversity and Community Partnership (DCP) is also accepting applications for its Faculty Fellowship Program. For more information, visit DCP website.
