The USC Postdoctoral Office is pleased to announce the call for applications for the 2014 Provost’s Postdoctoral Scholar Research Grant program which is one of the Provost’s signature postdoctoral scholar initiatives.  Now in its second year, the Provost’s Postdoctoral Scholar Research Grant program aims to facilitate independence by providing six grants of up to $25,000 to assist postdocs with developing independent research projects that serve as a stepping stone to external funding such as the NIH K99/R00 and F32 grant programs.

The deadline is Monday, April 7th, 2014.

Additionally, the application for the Postdoctoral Scholar Travel and Training Awards is also open.  These awards, of up to $3,000, will enable postdocs to attend workshops, conferences, learn new techniques, or perform research at off-site locations or in other labs. The application can be accessed here: https://uscpostdocs.wufoo.com/forms/2014-application

The deadline is Wednesday, April 30, 2014.
