  • Have completed one or more of the following degrees: MD, PhD, DPhil
  • Be within 6 years of starting a faculty (professorship) or comparable position on June 1, 2021(Note: an additional year of eligibility was added as a result of the COVID-19 crisis)
  • Have demonstrated ability to independently supervise staff and research
  • Have a publication record containing articles that are innovative and high impact

  • Do they write grants in their own name?
  • Do they report directly to funding agencies rather than a senior colleague?
  • Do they supervise their own graduate students and/or postdocs?
    If the answer to any of these questions is yes, and the candidate has also met the other eligibility criteria, he/she may be eligible to apply. NYSCF Staff is available to provide additional information on eligibility.
