Additional Information

The BWF Career Awards at the Scientific Interface are intended to foster the early career development of researchers who have transitioned from graduate work in the physical/mathematical/computational sciences or engineering into postdoctoral work in the biological sciences, and who are dedicated to pursuing a career in academic research. Candidates must have completed at least 12 months but not more than 60 months of postdoctoral research by the date of the full invited application deadline.

Proposals that include deep or machine learning applications of artificial intelligence are particularly encouraged. Special consideration will also be given to proposals that investigate the connection between climate change and human health. In addition to seeking participants from historically underrepresented groups, BWF is interested in increasing geographic diversity among candidates from the Central, Mountain and Southern States.

Pre-proposals are due September 1, 2022. Invited full proposals will be due January 6, 2023.

Please contact Lynn Wong if you are interested in applying to this opportunity.
