Fellowships providing a stipend of $25,000 per year to Israel postdoctoral scientists to carry out cancer research at institutions in Israel. This program is intended to assist young investigators during their postdoctoral training period. Awards will be made for specific projects conducted by a particular postdoctoral scientist under the supervision of a designated sponsoring senior investigator.

The ICRF also encourages Fellowship applications from M.D.’s who wish to pursue additional investigative work in a laboratory setting to acquire research experience. Proposals for this type of support will require supporting documents indicating that the applicant has a serious commitment to a career in academic medicine or one supported by institutional resources in basic or applied clinical research.

Funds may be requested for clinical or basic research or training, which must relate to cancer and must be conducted in Israel.

Each application is reviewed by a Scientific Review Panel of the Israel Cancer Research Fund (the Fund) and evaluated for its (1) scientific content and rationale; (2) qualifications, experience and productivity of the candidate; (3) facilities and scientific environment available to the candidate. The relationship of the research to cancer must be defined in the application.

The funds are to be used for actual direct expenses (salary, supplies, etc.) connected with the project.

Estimated Size of Grant:

Postdoctoral Fellowships provide a stipend of $25,000 per year.

Term of Contract:

Proposals will be accepted for a one or two year funding period, and the applicant must devote at least 50% of his or her time to the laboratory work.

Current Postdoctoral Fellowship recipients in the second year of their award who desire an additional one to two years of funding for their project should submit an application for a Project Grant.

Awards will be activated September 1, 2018.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

Funds for cancer research are available to citizens of Israel, both native-born and those who have settled. Funds are not available to visiting scientists. (Proof of Israeli citizenship must be furnished upon request.)

Postdoctoral Fellowship awards are intended to support young investigators during their period of postdoctoral training. The awards are made to each sponsoring institution with the understanding that they will support a specific project that will be conducted by a particular postdoctoral scientist under the supervision of a designated sponsoring senior investigator.

Postdoctoral Fellowship awards are given preferentially to those persons who will have had no more than three years of postdoctoral fellowship or equivalent experience prior to the date on which the ICRF award is to begin.

Preference is given to research or training carried out in Israel. Postdoctoral Fellowship applicants training outside of Israel will only be considered under extraordinary circumstances, and should normally seek funding elsewhere.

The Fund will not approve applications for a candidate's continued work in the same laboratory in which the doctoral degree was completed.

No overhead, clerical or other administrative charges can be made by the institution against the award funds. The ICRF also does not allow its funds to be used for work performed outside of Israel. However, travel expenses of up to a maximum of $1,000 may be budgeted for RCDAs, CRCDAs, and Postdoctoral Fellowships only.
