Entrepreneur Postdoctoral Fellowships Open

Mark Marich

Postdoctoral researchers bring new discoveries to the world, and the Kauffman Foundation is opening a door for them to do so through entrepreneurship.

The Kauffman Entrepreneur Postdoctoral Fellows program provides a unique opportunity for postdocs in science and technology fields to launch their innovative research from the lab to the marketplace.

Twelve selected individuals at U.S. institutions will be mentored by leading science entrepreneurs, along with legal, business, and financial experts, with the ultimate goal to develop their own startup companies. The application deadline for the 2009-2010 Fellowship is May 1, 2009. Applicants' Academic Advisor submissions must be received by May 15, 2009. A diverse pool of candidates is welcomed and encouraged. Interested applicants can now apply online.
