Nominations are being solicited for appointment as a UCSF Sandler Fellow. UCSF Sandler Fellows are independent group leaders who receive an annual financial award to cover their salary and the costs of their research program. Fellows are encouraged to apply for an NIH Director’s Early Independence Award (DP5). The UCSF Sandler Fellow award is nonrenewable, for a term of five years. See http://fellows.ucsf.edu/ for additional details about the program.
A candidate must be nominated by a mentor/advisor who is able to comment in some depth on the accomplishments and future potential of the candidate. A nomination letter, accompanied by the nominee’s curriculum vitae, should be sent to the address below by 1/13/23. Selected applications will then be chosen to submit two additional letters of recommendation and a brief research plan. All letters should include specific comments about how the candidate’s proposed research program has the potential for high impact in the chosen field and is distinct from existing work in the advisor’s lab, and why the candidate is ready to start an independent lab. Nominees working in any area of modern biomedical sciences will be considered. Although the UCSF Sandler Fellows Program is eager to consider nominations of all exceptional individuals, we are particularly interested in attracting a broad, diverse spectrum of scientists to our campus.
The deadline for nominations is January 13th, 2023. Nominations should be sent by email to:
