Postdoctoral Pelotonia Fellowship Program

The Pelotonia Fellowship Program provides two-year research fellowships for up to 12 of the brightest and most promising postdoctoral candidates who want to help cure cancer. Cancer is a complex disease and curing it will take a multidisciplinary effort. So, no matter what the field of study, from the traditional science fields to fields such as history, business and computer science, any postdoctoral candidate may apply.

These fellowships will pay a competitive annual stipend based on NIH guidelines for postdoctoral fellows.

Applications will be due three times per year. The next deadline is January 15, 2015, and will be scored on the following criteria: 

  • Applicant strengths and research potential (Emphasis is given to clinical fellows and applicants who have graduated within the last year, excluding clinical fellows, and who are or will be new to Ohio State - less than one year - and who have the potential to become independent scientists.)
  • Mentor/advisor qualifications and training record
  • Innovativeness and impact of project to cancer research
