National Multiple Sclerosis Society – Biostatistics/Informatics Junior Faculty Award

The National MS Society established a junior faculty award in biostatistics/ informatics/computational biology, with funding from the Marilyn Hilton MS Research Fund. The goal is to create protected time for a junior faculty member to collaborate with an established MS research group to develop expertise in MS clinical trials, real-world evidence, epidemiology, data mining, and/or other related bioinformatics research, and to inspire them to pursue critical questions in MS research throughout their career.
The award provides three years of partial (25-50%) salary support or teaching buy-out funds, as well as up to $20,000 per year for access to datasets.
Eligible candidates hold a doctoral degree (Ph.D. or equivalent) in biostatistics, data science, or informatics, and are within five years of completion of their terminal degree. They must have been offered or hold an academic appointment at the assistant professor (or equivalent) level at the initiation of the award.
The recipient institution may be in any country not subject to official US sanctions and must be a non-profit organization. There is no citizenship requirement.

Deadline: 10th August 2022
