JDRF International: Advanced Postdoctoral Fellowships 2016

The primary purpose of the JDRF Advanced Postdoctoral Fellowships scheme is to attract qualified, promising scientists to receive full time research training and to assist these promising individuals in transitioning from a fellowship to an independent (faculty-level) position.

Funding & Duration

Awards are for three years, assuming satisfactory progress. The fellowship term is 12 months for each fellowship year, and fellows must devote 100% of their effort to the project outlined in the fellowship application. Award amounts are based on years of relevant postdoctoral experience at the time of activation.


This fellowship is intended for applicants who have completed some postdoctoral training, show extraordinary promise and are preparing for a transition to an independent research position. Generally, the most recent doctoral degree (PhD, MD, DMD, DVM, or equivalent) will have been received no more than 6 years before the application is submitted.

There are no citizenship requirements for this program. Research may be conducted at foreign and domestic, for-profit and nonprofit, and public and private organisations – such as universities, colleges, hospitals, laboratories, units of state and local governments, and eligible agencies of the federal government.
