KRESCENT Post-Doctoral Fellowship and New Investigator programs
The Kidney Foundation of Canada
A KRESCENT program Post-Doctoral Fellowship is an “in-training” award intended for applicants with a PhD, MD or equivalent degree. The objective is to attract and foster young investigators to initiate and/or continue training in kidney research.
The KRESCENT program New Investigator Award (NI) is awarded to individuals who have clearly demonstrated excellence during their pre-doctoral and post-doctoral training in kidney disease. The award provides salary support of the faculty appointment at the rank of assistant professor or its equivalent at a Canadian university. The purpose of this award is to assist such an individual to become established as a fully independent investigator in the field of kidney disease.
Post-Doctoral Fellowship: Awards for a Post-Doctoral Fellowship are tenable under the supervision of investigators holding an academic appointment and in areas of investigation where it is clear that the research has direct relevance to kidney disease. The training program must include involvement in actual research, and not only courses in research methods. Candidates with more than four years of post-PhD research training by the competition deadline are not eligible
New Investigator: At the time of commencement of the New Investigator Award no more than three years may have passed since the date of the first faculty appointment. Candidates must hold an appointment at a Canadian university at assistant professor level or equivalent.
Applicants for both Post-Doctoral Fellowship and New Investigator programs must be Canadian citizens or landed immigrants at the time of submission.
