Camille and Henry Dreyfus Foundation, Inc.
The Camille and Henry Dreyfus Foundation seeks to further the development of scientific leadership in the field of environmental chemistry with a postdoctoral fellowship program. The Postdoctoral Program in Environmental Chemistry provides a principal investigator with an award of $120,000 over two years to appoint a Postdoctoral Fellow in environmental chemistry.
The Postdoctoral Program in Environmental Chemistry is open to all academic and other not-for-profit organizations in the States, Districts, and Territories of the United States of America. Applications are accepted from principal investigators who have well-established research efforts in environmental science or engineering. These research activities need not be located in traditional departments in the chemical sciences, and collaboration across departments and institutions is encouraged. The postdoctoral fellow is usually not already identified nor in the principal investigator's lab at the time of application.
Application Deadline: August 3, 2015

Clinical & Translational Science Collaborative – Career Development Training Opportunity
The Clinical & Translational Science Collaborative (CTSC) KL2 a post-doctoral training program with an emphasis on multidisciplinary clinical and translational research, offers an innovative career development opportunity for qualified candidates.
The CTSC KL2 is designed to train the nation’s future leaders in clinical and translational research, and is part of the NIH Roadmap aimed at “re-engineering the clinical research enterprise.” The CTSC KL2 has just welcomed this year’s cohort of scholars, who were selected from a highly competitive pool of applicants:
- Mohamed Abazeed, MD, PhD (Radiation Oncology; Translational Hematology & Oncology, CCF)
- Stefanie Avril, MD (Pathology, CWRU)
- Nicholas Schiltz, PhD (Epidemiology & Biostatistics, CWRU)
- Jennifer Sweet, MD (Neurosurgery, University Hospitals Case Medical Center)
CTSC KL2 is now seeking applications for next year’s cohort.
Qualified candidates must:
- Hold an MD, PhD, DDS, PharmD, PsyD, or equivalent degree
- Demonstrate a keen interest in clinical research
- Have an appointment in one of the CTSC partner institutions on or before July 1, 2016
- Be a U.S. citizen or have permanent resident status
Each scholar will embark on a 4-year program of intensive training in multidisciplinary team-based, patient-oriented clinical research, combining an innovative curriculum with mentored research experiences.
Applications will be accepted between 7/1/15 and 10/12/15.
For more information, contact Beth Spyke, MPA, at email@example.com / 216.444.2702 or Raed Dweik, MD, at firstname.lastname@example.org / 216-445-5763. You may also request to schedule an information session.

Limited Submission Reminder: W.M. Keck Foundation Research Program
Key Deadlines: June 15, 2015 (CWRU internal LOI), November 1, 2015 (Sponsor Deadline).
The W.M. Keck Foundation Research Program seeks to benefit humanity by funding fundamental, high-risk research in two specific areas: 1) medical research and 2) science and engineering. Both Senior and Early Career investigators are encouraged to apply. CWRU may submit two proposals per funding cycle: one (1) in Medical Research and one (1) in Science and Engineering Research.
Applicants are encouraged to consult with their Associate Deans for Research prior to internal submission to assure they meet eligibility criteria and their projects meet stated program objectives.
Grants of up to $1 million over 3 years are awarded for projects in science and engineering research and medical research that:
- Focus on basic, early stage, emerging areas of research, not on clinical or translational research, treatment trials or research for the sole purpose of drug development.
- Have the potential to develop breakthrough technologies, instrumentation or methodologies.
- Have few, if any, peer groups pursuing comparable or related work.
- Have high level of risk due to unconventional approaches, or by challenging the prevailing paradigm.
- Have the potential for transformative impact, such as the founding of a new field of research, the enabling of observations not previously possible, or the altered perception of a previously intractable problem.
- Fall outside the mission of public funding agencies. Provide specifics. If you've been declined federal funding, provide the documentation stating why, if available.
- Demonstrate that the W. M. Keck Foundation's support is essential to the project's success.
For more information on this limited submission opportunity, visit the Office of Research Administration website.
