Welcome from the Vice President for Research

CWRU researchers are among the most distinguished in the world. We have 16 Nobel Laureates among current and former faculty and alumni, 4 members of the National Academies of Sciences, 7 members of the National Academy of Engineering, and 8 members of the Institute of Medicine. We also partner with artistic and cultural institutions on a broad range of projects that make important scholarly contributions in the humanities and social sciences.

Extraordinary research requires an outstanding infrastructure. Our Office of Research & Technology Management provides support to seek out grant funding, to facilitate industrial sponsorship, and to transfer university technologies to the marketplace. This is a place for people driven to make a difference, and our office exists to help them succeed.

Contact us. We want you to see what our campus can offer.

Hartwell Postdoctoral Fellowship Nominations Due by May 15

Case Western Reserve University will receive a Hartwell Fellowship to fund one postdoctoral candidate of their choice who exemplifies the values of the Foundation. Each Hartwell Fellowship will provide support for two years at $50,000 direct cost for two years. Each Fellowship must be used to fund one postdoctoral candidate of the institution’s choice, selected from areas of biomedical science, in appropriate areas of basic and applied life sciences related to human health that are consistent with the values of The Hartwell Foundation, including engineering focused on biomedical applications. Proposals must reflect relevance in terms of potential benefits to children. The Foundation will only consider proposals in biomedical research. The Foundation will not consider for example, research in public health, epidemiology, social science, psychology, ecology, environmental impacts, anthropology, or botany. It is the intent of The Hartwell Foundation that the Fellowship will support scientists and biomedical engineers who have completed requirements for a doctoral degree and are still in the early stages of career development. The Fellowship must be used to pursue further specialized research training, not to extend or complete clinical training. The Fellowship will be funded in July.

The following rules apply to the Hartwell Fellowship:

  • Hartwell Fellows must be citizens of the United States
  • Fellows must commence their postdoctoral training no later than November 1, or the Fellowship award to the Institution may be rescinded
  • Funds may be used for salary, health insurance, or travel related to a scientific meeting, but not for the purchase of supplies or equipment or other fringe benefits
  • No part of the Fellowship may cover institutional overhead or other indirect costs, nor should the recipient or the sponsoring research laboratory be obligated or penalized to pay by substitution such indirect costs by any other means
  • At the conclusion of funding, the Hartwell Fellow should submit a summary of the impact that the award had on their career goals
  • If appreciable funds remain following a resignation of the Hartwell Fellow, the sponsoring institution must designate a timely replacement within Foundation guidelines; no adjustment to residual funds will be provided by The Hartwell Foundation
Start and End Dates
Postdoctoral study will commence upon receipt of funds but in no case later than November 1, 2015. The active period of the Fellowship is intended to be two years from commencement of training, unless the end date is extended by virtue of carryover of funds. At the conclusion of funding, the Hartwell Fellow will submit to the Foundation a summary of the impact that the award had on their career goals.

Nominations must be received by May 12, 2015 and include cv’s of the proposed postdoctoral fellow, a letter and cv of the sponsoring mentoring faculty member, a brief description of the biomedical research project in which the Fellow will be engaged and its relevance to the values of The Hartwell Foundation. The letter of request should also outline that the proposed Fellowships consistent with the rules noted above. The applications should be sent to DeputyProvost@case.edu no later than May 15, 2015.

 
NEW Limited Submission: William T. Grant Foundation Scholars Program

Key Deadlines: May 18, 2015 (CWRU internal letter of intent); July 8, 2015 (Sponsor's submission deadline).

The William T. Grant Scholars Program supports early-career researchers in the social, behavioral, and health sciences. They encourage Scholars to tackle important questions that will advance theory, policy, and practice for youth. Applicants identify new methods, disciplines, or content they want to learn, and propose five-year research plans that foster their growth in those areas. They recognize that early-career researchers are rarely given incentives or support to take such risks, so this award includes a mentoring component. Potential Scholars should have a promising track record of conducting high-quality research, but want to pursue a significant shift in their trajectories as researchers.

The Foundation supports research to understand and improve the everyday settings of youth ages 5 to 25 in the United States. The Foundation funds studies that enhance our understanding of: (1) reducing inequality, (2) understanding the use of research evidence, and (3) understanding social changes.

Number of Applications Allowed: One applicant each year
