Modified: September 21, 2015

The Postdoctoral Research Fellowship for Academic Diversity at the University of Pennsylvania (Penn) and The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) is a joint effort between the two institutions. Though CHOP and Penn are independent entities; together they create a rich intellectual and scientific community, sharing several departments, faculty and resources. CHOP and Penn partner to fund Postdoctoral Research Fellowship for Academic Diversity. CHOP is one of the world’s premier pediatric hospitals and has a long and distinguished tradition of research that has spanned nearly a century http://www.research.chop.edu/. CHOP is seeking late stage graduate students or early stage postdoctoral fellows to apply for this fellowship. Please see the attached program description for eligibility requirements.

Successful applicants will be funded by The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia Research Institute and supported by The CHOP Office of Postdoctoral Affairs. Support will include salary (starting at $45,000 for new postdoctoral fellows with no previous postdoctoral experience, increasing in $2,000 increments annually) and benefits, and provides an annual allowance for travel ($2,000) and supplies ($5,000), and a one-time relocation allowance (up to $5,000). Support will be provided for up to three years and participants will be able to take part in all Penn-sponsored programming as well as CHOP-specific programming organized by the CHOP Office of Postdoctoral Affairs.

To be eligible for the CHOP fellowship a CHOP-based research mentor will need to be selected for the postdoctoral lab. The Investigator Directory can be used to search for faculty based on area of study http://www.research.chop.edu/people/keyword.
