2013 Searle Scholars Program


This contest is closed.

Internal Deadline: 5pm July 15, 2012

The 2013 Searle Scholars Program for new researchers in the biomedical sciences has announced a deadline of September 28, 2012 for submission of proposals. The program makes awards of $100,000 per year for three years to support the independent research of outstanding individuals in the first or second year of their first appointment as a tenure-track assistant professor. See http://www.searlescholars.net for more details.

Note that the CU System is only allowed to submit two nominees, and by prior agreement between CU Boulder and UCDHSC, each campus will forward one nominee. If more than one UCB faculty member wants to apply for this Searle Scholars Program, it will be necessary to hold an internal competition to select our one candidate. Therefore, interested nominees should use the form found at the following link to submit the following to the Vice Chancellor for Research by 5pm on July 15, 2012: Please paste the following link in your browser: https://competitions.colorado.edu/competitions/2013_Searle/application.php

  • 2-page summary of your research plans
  • Copy of your vitae
  • Letter of support from your department chair
  • List of references from whom you can request letters of support should you be chosen as the campus nominee

This internal deadline will leave time for selection of the nominee and for the nominee to complete and submit a full application by the September 28, 2012 deadline.
