All applications must be received on this website by May 31, 2011

The Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology (FASEB) is pleased to announce the opening of applications for the 2011 FASEB Postdoctoral Professional Development and Enrichment Award. The FASEB Postdoctoral Professional Development and Enrichment Award (sponsored by the National Institute of General Medical Science, National Institutes of Health) was established to recognize outstanding achievement by an early stage life scientist from an underrepresented minority group. Individuals eligible for nomination are U.S.A. Citizens or Permanent Residents of the U.S.A. from an ethnic minority group recognized as being underrepresented in the biomedical and behavioral sciences, are members of one or more of the societies of FASEB and are at a relatively early career stage, defined as a minimum of two-to-five years of postdoctoral research training or within one-year as a new assistant professor. Applications are requested from highly promising postdoctoral scientists who have demonstrated research productivity including having published first-author papers in scientific publications, mentoring of URM undergraduate and graduate students, and service leading to improving and expanding opportunities for minorities in the scientific workforce and academia. A total of six (6) individual awards are available. Each of the six awards will include a $3000 career development award, a certificate in recognition of the award, and a $2500 travel award.

These awards are primarily intended for advanced URM postdoctorates that will be able to utilize these resources to gain knowledge, skills and training to assist them in becoming competitive for funding that will help them with publication in top tier journals and be competitive for faculty positions in prestigious research intensive settings.
Applications are encouraged from individuals from comprehensive research universities.
* Qualified ethnic minority groups that are identified as being underrepresented in the biomedical and behavioral sciences include: African Americans, Alaskan Natives, Hispanic Americans, American Indians/Native Americans and Natives of the U.S. Pacific Islands (Guam or Hawai'i.) Members of qualified underrepresented minority groups must be citizens or non-citizen nationals of the United States of America or must have been lawfully admitted to the United States of America for permanent residence and have in possession a permanent visa (green card) at the time of application submittal. Individuals on temporary or student visas are not eligible for FASEB MARC Program funding.
These awards are funded by the U.S. federal government. Postdoctoral trainees at federal facilities who receive federal support for their salary/wages are not eligible for these awards.
