The program was established in 1984 to encourage outstanding women and minoritized Ph.D. recipients to pursue academic careers at the University of California and provides research opportunities and career development for scholars whose work will enhance the diversity of the academic community at the UC. Since 2003, over 100 former fellows have received faculty appointments at University of California campuses. Deadline for the 2024-2026 fellowships is November 1, 2023. Postdoctoral Funding Opportunity! A.P. Giannini Foundation Fellowship | Deadline: November 9, 2023 The A.P. Giannini Foundation invites physician-scientists and junior researchers with 3 to 36 months of postdoctoral research experience (as of December 31, 2023) to apply to the 2024 Postdoctoral Research Fellowship & Leadership Award. The Fellowship and Leadership Award supports innovative research in the basic sciences and applied fields and trains fellows to become established investigators and to pursue scientific leadership positions in academia, industry, public and non-traditional career pathways. Research projects should advance the translation of biomedical science into preventions, treatments, and cures for human diseases. Applicants with tenure-track research positions or faculty appointments are ineligible. Fellows receive a competitive stipend for their research training. Candidates may be eligible to obtain additional salary support from their sponsoring institution. Fellows cannot concurrently hold a full fellowship from another source or a federally funded career development award. Fellows receive leadership training and support to maximize their postdoctoral experience. Fellows participate in workshops and receive one-on-one coaching to foster their communication and leadership skills. The Foundation requires that fellows participate in the Leadership Program.
