Arnold O. Beckman Postdoctoral Fellows Award


Monday, February 02, 2015

Dear Rutgers Colleagues,

The Arnold and Mabel Beckman Foundation is pleased to announce the Arnold O. Beckman Postdoctoral Fellows Award.  This award program is intended to support postdoctoral scholars with the highest potential for success in an independent academic career in chemistry and the life sciences, and to assist in their transition from “mentored yet independent” postdoctoral to an independent, tenure-track position.  Nearly all successful academic careers in science at present begin with a postdoctoral period of additional training and development prior to the first tenure tract appointment. These individuals are expected to become the next generation of leaders and innovators in science, engineering, and technology.

Fellows will be appointed for two years, and may begin as early as August of their application year, and no later than December 31.  The award amount will range from $57,000 - $67,000 based on research experience with 75% of the award going towards the stipend, which may be supplemented from other sources, and 25% used towards research expenditures. 

This is a Limited Submission Opportunity (LSO) for which Rutgers University may nominate a single candidate.  As such, all interested applicants are asked to submit a project abstract, CV, and letter of recommendation no later than 5:00 pm on November 12, 2014.  Submissions will be accepted through the Corporate and Foundation Relations website at  All submissions will be reviewed by a panel of faculty experts and the chosen applicant notified no later than November 19th, 2014.
