Research Professorship

This award will be used to support a full-time, senior faculty member, or person in an equivalent position, who has made outstanding contributions to cancer research and who will continue to provide leadership in his or her research area. The applicant must have at least eight years’ experience beyond the doctoral degree, and be no less than five years from the usual and customary age of retirement at his or her institution. Applicants are expected to provide evidence of past accomplishments and, more importantly, demonstrate potential for continued enriching contributions to the cancer research field. The research experience and interest of the applicant may be in either basic biological science or in clinical research and must relate to cancer. The Research Professorship is awarded for a period of seven (7) years at a maximum stipend of $50,000 per year.

Clinical Research Career Development Awards (CRCDAs)
These awards are intended to enhance the clinical research capabilities of young Israeli scientists in the formative phase of their careers who have demonstrated outstanding potential for contribution to clinical cancer research as independent investigators.  Their main purpose is to provide free time for young medical or pediatric oncologists to devote to clinical research projects and to obtain additional (post-fellowship) training to become a leader in clinical research programs. Candidates must have a medical degree and at least two (2) years of fellowship training in medical or pediatric hematology-oncology or a related specialty, but not more than five (5) years of subsequent relevant professional experience prior to the award commencement date. A CRCDA is limited to a single support period of three (3) years at a maximum stipend of $45,000 per year. (Past recipients are not permitted to reapply for this award.)

Research Career Development Awards (RCDAs)

These awards are intended to enhance the research capabilities of young Israeli scientists in the formative phase of their careers who have demonstrated outstanding potential for contribution to cancer research as independent investigators. Candidates must have a doctoral degree, at least three (3) years of postdoctoral fellowship or equivalent experience, and be within five (5) years of their first appointment to an independent position prior to the award commencement date. Awards are made for three (3) years at a maximum stipend of $35,000 per year. (Recipients are permitted and encouraged to reapply once for an additional three years of support, provided that they are still within five years of their first appointment to an independent position prior to the award commencement date.)  We also have a special program for an RCDA in Pancreatic Cancer.  This grant is made every three (3) years.  Please scroll down for more Information.

The Barbara S. Goodman Endowed RCDA for Pancreatic Cancer

The Israel Cancer Research Fund (ICRF) invites Research Career Development Award (RCDA) applications from interested and eligible investigators studying the biology, diagnosis, treatment, supportive care, and/or prevention of cancer of the pancreas.  The Barbara S. Goodman Endowed RCDA for Pancreatic Cancer has been established as a special grant intended to advance our knowledge of the pathogenesis and treatment of pancreatic cancer.  Candidates must have a doctoral degree, at least three (3) years of postdoctoral fellowship or equivalent experience, and be within five (5) years of their first appointment to an independent position prior to the award commencement date.  Awards are made for three (3) years at a maximum stipend of $35,000 per year. (Recipients are permitted and encouraged to reapply once for an additional three years of support, provided that they are still within five years of their first appointment to an independent position prior to the award commencement date.)  It is anticipated that one (1) new award will be made every three years.

Project Grants
These awards are intended to support the research of established investigators. Awards are granted with the understanding that they will support specific projects under the direction of designated principal investigators. Preference is given to persons with more than three years of postdoctoral fellowship or equivalent experience prior to the award commencement date. Awards are made for from one (1) to two (2) years at a maximum stipend of $30,000 per year. (Current Project Grant recipients are encouraged to reapply for continued funding of the same project. Ideally, this should be done during the second year of the award so that, if selected, the new grant will begin upon completion of the old.)

Postdoctoral Fellowships
These awards are intended to support young investigators during their postdoctoral training period. Awards are granted with the understanding that they will support specific projects conducted by recent postdoctoral scientists under the supervision of designated sponsoring senior investigators. Preference is given to persons with no more than three years of postdoctoral fellowship or equivalent experience prior to the award commencement date. Applications are also encouraged from M.D.'s who wish to pursue additional investigative work in a laboratory setting to acquire research experience. Awards are made for two (2) years at a maximum stipend of $25,000 per year.  Current Fellowship recipients in the second year of their award desiring continued funding must submit a complete new application for a Project Grant.)
