Data Scientists: Apply for the NCI R50 Research Specialist Award by October 18
The National Cancer Institute’s (NCI) R50 Research Specialist Award encourages the development of stable research career opportunities for exceptional scientists who want to pursue research within the context of an existing NCI-funded cancer research program, but not serve as independent investigators. These staff scientists working in research laboratories, core facilities, and data science centers, are vital to sustaining the biomedical research enterprise. The R50 Award is intended to provide salary support and sufficient autonomy so that individuals are not solely dependent on NCI grants held by others for career continuity. Submit your application by October 18, 2019.
