The Health Effects Institute is a nonprofit corporation chartered in 1980 as an independent research organization to provide high-quality, impartial, and relevant science on the health effects of air pollution.
As part of its mission, HEI established the Walter A. Rosenblith New Investigator Award to provide funding for outstanding investigators who are beginning their independent research careers. By providing financial support for investigators at an early point in their careers, the institute hopes to encourage highly qualified individuals to undertake research on the health effects of air pollution.
Each award will be up to $150,000 per year, with a maximum of $450,000 over three years. The funds can be used to provide salary support for the investigator and supporting junior personnel as well as operating costs, including supplies and equipment.
Scientists of any nationality holding a PhD, ScD, MD, DVM, or DrPH degree or equivalent are eligible to apply. At the time of application, the candidate should have two to seven years of research experience after obtaining the highest degree and must be in an assistant professor or equivalent position in an academic or research institution.
