Endowed Postdoctoral Fellowships
Fox Chase currently maintains several endowed postdoctoral fellowships:
- William J. Avery Endowed Postdoctoral Fellowship; W.J. Avery Endowed Postdoctoral Fellowship
These two fellowships were established as a result of Fox Chase Cancer Center's Prevention Research Campaign. These fellowships were made possible by a generous gift from the Connelly Foundation in the name of its fellow trustee and Fox Chase Prevention Campaign Chairman William J. Avery.
- Fox Chase Cancer Center Board of Directors' Fellowship
This fellowship was established through many generous leadership gifts from members of the Fox Chase Cancer Center Governing Board as the inaugural project of the Cancer Prevention Research Campaign.
- Lawrence Greenwald Postdoctoral Fellowship
This fellowship is endowed through a gift from four foundations headed by members of the Greenwald family. The fellowship supports candidates with a commitment to research on leukemia and lymphomas.
- Elizabeth Knight Patterson Postdoctoral Fellowship
This fellowship, established in honor of longtime Fox Chase scientist Elizabeth Knight Patterson, supports postdoctoral research in structural biology and/or biochemistry.
- Board of Associates Fellowship
This one-year fellowship is awarded through an annual gift from the Fox Chase Cancer Center Board of Associates.
The above fellowships have no citizenship restrictions and cannot be transferred if the postdoctoral fellow leaves Fox Chase.
- Completion of a PhD, MD, DVM or equivalent degree
- Three letters of recommendation
- A brief research proposal written with the advice of a Fox Chase faculty member
A number of medical fellowships are also available to qualified applicants.
