The Parker B. Francis Fellowship in Pulmonary Research is limited to two applications per department with a max of three active fellowships at any one time.
This fellowship provides research support to clinical and basic scientists embarking on careers in clinical, laboratory or translational science related to Pulmonary, Critical Care and Sleep Medicine. The ideal candidate is one with evidence of strong aptitude in research and who is in transition from post-doctoral trainee to independent investigator. It is essential that there be evidence of accomplishment and proficiency in research. Few applicants who are just beginning research training and have only one or two research publications are funded.
This will not be run through the University of Iowa's OVPR Limited Submissions since each department may submit two applications. Potential applicants must contact their department head before going forward. The foundation’s deadline is October 11, 2021. Application materials must be routed to arrive in Sponsored Programs by October 4, 2021.
