Michigan Postdoc Pioneer Program Submissions are Open!

In an effort to support innovative and collaborative work within the University of Michigan Medical School (UMMS), the Michigan Postdoctoral Pioneer Program has been established by the Endowment for Basic Sciences (EBS) to provide financial and mentoring support to highly motivated and promising post-doctoral fellows. 

Pioneer fellows will be actively co-mentored by the participating investigators and will be expected to share their time between the participating laboratory settings. Awardees will be appointed for three consecutive years. The EBS will provide 90% of the financial and logistical support for the first two years. Participating mentors will jointly provide 10% of the financial support for years 1 and 2, and 100% of the support for year 3. The stipend is set at 120% of the NIH scale for postdoctoral fellows.

  • Deadline for submission is May 1, 2021
  • Decision notification is July 15, 2021
  • Appointment start date is Fall 2021
