To enhance the PRU’s mandate, goals, and research agenda, POGO has established two research fellowships (PhD/Post Doctoral Fellowship and Clinician Scholar Award). This award includes a yearly salary of $55,000 (Clinician Scholar), $45,000 (Post-Doctoral), or $30,000 (PhD) and the ability to apply for $5,000 in project-specific one-time operating support.
PhD/Post Doctoral Fellowships
(1 fellowship of 1 to 3 years duration)
The PhD/Post Doctoral Fellowship will be awarded to either an applicant working toward a PhD or to a post doctoral research candidate. While applicants may have training and/or experience in areas not directly related to POGO activities, they will be required to demonstrate relevance to pediatric oncology.
Clinician Scholar Award
(1 fellowship of 1 or 2 years duration)
The Clinician Scholar Award is open to licensed clinicians and health care practitioners of any discipline working in the field of pediatric oncology. Applicants may have limited research experience although they have a strong interest in research.
