Applicants must have a doctoral degree (including PhD, MD, DO, DC, ND, DDS, DVM, ScD, DNS, PharmD, or equivalent) in a related field and not currently be a candidate for a further doctoral degree.
At the start of the grant term on July 1, 2019, applicants must hold a mentored research position with the title of postdoctoral fellow, clinical research fellow, or the equivalent; have completed their most recent doctoral
degree within the past five years (i.e., degree cannot have been conferred before
July 1, 2014); and work under the auspices of a mentor at an academic, medical, or research institution anywhere in the world.
Applicants with a medical degree must have completed their most recent doctoral degree or medical residency - whichever date is later - within the past five years.
If eligibility is based on a future position, the position must be confirmed at the time of application and CANNOT be contingent upon receiving this grant.
Investigators may submit only one application for the AACR Lung Cancer Research Fellowships but may concurrently apply for other AACR grants. However, applicants are expected to accept the first grant they are awarded. Individuals may accept and hold only one AACR grant at a time.
Any individual who currently holds an active AACR grant may not apply. Past grantees may apply if they complied with all progress and financial report requirements.
Employees or subcontractors of a U.S. government entity or for-profit private industry are not eligible. Postdoctoral fellows conducting research in a U.S. government laboratory (e.g., NIH, CDC, FDA, etc.), are not eligible.
All applicants with questions about eligibility must contact AACR's Scientific Review and Grants Administration at firstname.lastname@example.org before submitting an application.
