  • Full Early Career Investigators: Scientists with PhD, MD or equivalent who either          
    (1) have begun independent tracks leading to or with their own groups within the last 6 years (e.g., Assistant Professor; Lecturer; Reader; Docent; Research Scientist), or
    (2) who are not in an independent track but have begun employment in a research program, typically under the direction of a more senior scientist, within the last 6 years (e.g., staff scientist, research associate).

Applicants that do not yet have authored or co-authored publications should provide information about their past and current scientific activities.
