Postdoctoral Fellowships


The objective of the Postdoctoral Research Fellowship Award is to support the development of promising research trainees and their basic or translational research in the liver field. The Postdoctoral Research Fellowship Award encourages the career development of individuals with research potential who require additional research training and experience. The award provides a supplementary stipend to support trainees with living expenses and allow them to focus on their investigational work on liver biology and disease and their transition to a career in independent research.

Postdoctoral trainees who hold MD, PhD or MD/PhD degrees and are training in liver research are encouraged to apply. The award will supplement National Institutes of Health (NIH) or other federal or non-federal fellowship stipends. Individuals who have no other source of research salary support are not eligible for this award.
