Research awards available to junior dental faculty

Princeton, N.J.—The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation has issued a call for applications for the 2013 Harold Amos Medical Faculty Development Program.

RWJF created the program to increase the number of faculty from historically disadvantaged backgrounds who can achieve senior rank in academic dentistry and medicine, and encourage and foster the development of succeeding classes of such dentists and physicians.

Four-year postdoctoral research awards are available to universities, schools of dentistry and medicine, and research institutions to support the research and career development of dentists and physicians from historically disadvantaged backgrounds who are committed to developing careers in academic dentistry and medicine and to serving as role models for students and faculty of similar backgrounds.

March 14 (3 p.m. Eastern Time) is the deadline to apply. More information and the call for applications are available online at pweb1.rwjf.org/applications/solicited/cfp.jsp?ID=21419
