American Society for Microbiology Career Development Grants for Postdoctoral Women

The American Society for Microbiology is pleased to announce that applications are being accepted for the 2012 Career Development Grants for Postdoctoral Women. Three grants ($1200 each) are given annually to enhance the careers of postdoctoral women with outstanding scientific accomplishments and potential for significant research in the area of microbiology. The fields covered by the award are any of those represented by the scientific divisions of the American Society for Microbiology. The grants support the career development of the winning candidates by providing funds to attend a meeting (other than the ASM General Meeting or ICAAC), to visit another laboratory, to take a course in a geographically distant place, or for other purposes to advance the candidate's career.

To be eligible for this program, a woman scientist must hold a doctoral degree and have no more than five years of relevant research experience since receipt of her most recent doctoral degree. Candidates must currently be performing postdoctoral work in microbiology, at an institution in the United States. The candidate must be a member of ASM. A letter of support must be provided by a nominator, who should be the candidate’s mentor, Department Chair, or Center Director. The nominator must be a member of ASM and may only support one candidate for this award per year. (Other guidelines exist – please check the website cited below for more details.)

Deadline to apply: Feb 1, 2012. For more info & to apply:
