BlackInChem aims to strengthen the network between Black people in the chemistry space whilst highlighting excellence in chemistry research. In pursuit of this mission, BlackInChem will be highlighting Black excellence in the field of chemistry research by awarding a postdoctoral fellowship to an outstanding member of the chemistry research community who embodies the principles of the organization. The goals of this award are to advance innovative strategies that will lead to preventions, treatments, or cures for diseases of all types, promote research into disparities in health outcomes in the Black community, and increase Black representation in the chemistry research community. We will hold information sessions on the fellowship July 2022. Check back later for reservation information!
Award Amount: The BlackInChem Postdoctoral Fellowship will provide up to three years of financial support for an ambitious scientific project, including one in its early stages and/or not currently supported by grants from the NIH, NSF, DoD, or other government agencies. In an effort to help the awardee achieve success in a tenure-track position, the fellowship can also be used to provide funding that bridges this transitional stage of an academic career. The award will provide $75,000 per year while the awardee is a trainee but will increase to $100,000 per year if/when the awardee accepts an academic tenure-track position.
Length: Up to three years
