  Searle Scholars Program

The Searle Scholars Program makes grants to selected academic institutions to support the independent research of outstanding individuals who have recently begun their first appointment at the assistant professor level, and whose appointment is a tenure-track position.

The Program was established at The Chicago Community Trust in 1980 and has been administered by Kinship Foundation since 1996. The Program is funded from the estates of Mr. and Mrs. John G. Searle. Mr. Searle was the grandson of the founder of the world-wide pharmaceutical company, G.D. Searle & Company. It was Mr. Searle's wish that certain funds be used to support "...research in medicine, chemistry, and the biological sciences."

Applicants for awards which will be activated on July 1, 2014 will be expected to be pursuing independent research careers in biochemistry, cell biology, genetics, immunology, neuroscience, pharmacology, and related areas in chemistry, medicine, and the biological sciences.

Candidates should have begun their appointment as an independent investigator at the assistant professor level on or after July 1, 2012. The appointment must be their first tenure-track position (or its nearest equivalent) at an invited institution.

USC may only submit one application to this program announcement. Your application submission MUST be coordinated with the Office of the Vice President for Research. If you are interested in applying, please contact Richard White(whitejrw@mailbox.sc.edu)for application instructions for the internal competition, which will close on August 2, 2013. Once the internal selection process has taken place and an applicant has been selected, the complete application package must be turned in by no later than September 27, 2013.
