  • Research Resident/Fellow Grant

  • Deadline Date: January 17, 2017
    Note: Applicants may apply 6 months or 18 months before the scheduled start date.

    Purpose: To provide young investigators an opportunity to gain further insight into scientific investigation and to gain competence in research techniques and methods in anticipation of establishing a career in academic radiologic science. Recipients will devote a minimum of 50% of their time in the approved research project under the guidance of a scientific advisor/mentor.

    Nature of Projects:

    • Any area of research related to the radiologic sciences, from hypothesis-driven basic science and clinical investigations to topics such as drug, device, and therapy development; comparative effectiveness, evidence-based radiology, ethics and professionalism, quality improvement, clinical practice efficiency, and imaging informatics.
    • Applications should describe the unique nature of the research effort independent of existing research efforts, and should have well-defined goals for the funding period of the grant. Participation of the recipient in established funded research is encouraged, but the responsibility and project of the recipient should be clearly described in the application.
    • Projects focused on advancing imaging science, developing or evaluating medical imaging technology, or making innovative use of imaging science to answer important biologic or clinical questions are encouraged.
    • This program is not intended to support those whose primary aim is to obtain practical experience in clinical radiology.
    • This program is not intended to fund PhD post-doc projects.

    Amount: $30,000 for a 1-year Research Resident project or $50,000 for a 1-year Research Fellow project. Residents may opt for a 6-month, full-time research project. Funds may be used for salary and/or non-personnel research expenses.

    Eligibility:

    • Applicant must be an RSNA Member (at any level) at the time of application. If the applicant's membership category is Member-in-Training or any other non dues-paying category, the scientific advisor or one of the co-investigators must be a dues-paying member. Check your membership status, or become a member today - visit the RSNA Membership Web site for details.
    • Applicants within North American educational institutions must be residents or fellows in a department of radiology, radiation oncology, nuclear medicine or medical physics at the time of application.
      • Resident Grant: Radiology, radiation oncology and nuclear medicine applicants must have completed the internship year (PGY-1) and at least 6-months of specialty training in the radiologic sciences (PGY-2). Medical physics residents must have completed at least 6-months of medical physics residency training.
      • Fellow Grant: Applicant must be in the last year of, or have completed, the prescribed residency training. If awarded, recipient must be in a fellowship position during the period of grant support.
      • Applicant must be certified by the American Board of Radiology (ABR), or on track for certification. See the American Board of Radiology Website for details, TheABR.org.
      • Funds may be used for salary and/or non-personnel research expenses.
       
    • Applicants from outside North America must already be accepted into a one- or two-year Fellowship position at a North American education institution at the time of the grant application. Candidates may apply for the grant before arriving at the North American institution if documentation of the accepted fellowship is provided.
      • Applicant must be in the last year of, or have completed, the prescribed residency training.
      • Applicant must be certified, or on track for certification, by the radiology board in their home country.
      • The one-year research project must be completed while the recipient is at the North American institution.
      • R&E Foundation funds can only be used for non-stipend expenses associated with the proposed research.
       
    • Applicants must not have ever held a faculty position in the radiologic sciences at or above the level of assistant professor (or equivalent).  
    • Applicant must not have been principal investigator on external/extramural grant/contract amounts totaling more than $60,000 in a single year. The restriction on prior funding includes support from single or combined grants or contracts from any source including government, private or industrial/commercial sources.
    • Applicant/co-principal investigator(s) must not be agents of any for-profit, commercial company in the radiologic sciences.
    • Applicant may not submit more than one research or education grant application to the RSNA R&E Foundation per year.
    • Recipients may not have concurrent RSNA grants.
    • Supplementation of funding from other grant sources must be approved by Foundation staff if not described in the original research plan. Awards from other sources may be approved by Foundation staff if the investigator submits a satisfactory plan to address any budgetary overlap.
