Postdoctoral Research Fellowship for Academic Diversity at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia

The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) Research Institute has partnered with Penn State University to create the Postdoctoral Research Fellowship for Academic Diversity at CHOP. This partnership allows diversity fellows from CHOP and Penn to form a cohesive cohort that takes advantage of programming and support at both institutions. CHOP diversity fellows are eligible to participate in all programming from Penn’s Biomedical Postdoctoral Programs Office.  

CHOP is seeking late-stage graduate students or early-stage postdoctoral trainees to apply for this fellowship. 

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 $54,000 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 for external candidates (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. External candidates may use the Investigator Directory to search for faculty based on area of study.

Completed applications are due by Sunday, November 15.  

Please email Paulette McRae, PhD with any questions you may have.
