2009-2010 Sarnoff Fellowship Program Application
Application Deadline: January 7, 2009
The following portions of the application should completed and submitted online:
- A one page personal statement describing scholarly interests and career plans. Please discuss your prior research experience, if any, why you would like to spend a year doing research, what you expect from your Sarnoff Fellowship, and how the Sarnoff Fellowship experience might change your career plans.
- A three page essay on a cardiovascular topic of interest to you. The essay should consist of three components: (1) describe in one page a clinical or scientific problem, review the literature, and define the relevance of the problem to cardiovascular medicine; (2) describe in one page various strategies or experiments to examine the problem (but do not include laboratory protocols); (3) explain in one page which approach to this problem you find most interesting and why.
This is not meant to define your future research as a Sarnoff Fellow, nor does it commit you to a specific research project. Fellows will ultimately choose their area of research and their Preceptor after their acceptance into the program and after consultation with the Sponsor and Sarnoff Scientific Committee Advisor.
- A copy of the applicant's curriculum vitae.
The personal statement and essay should be single-spaced and conform to the following type requirements: 1) the font size should be at least 10 point; 2) the type density should be no more than 15 characters per inch; and 3) no more than 54 lines per page.
- Three recommendation letters - one from the Sponsor and two additional references.
Please register your references on the following link as soon as you have identified them:
Your references will receive an e-mail from Sarnoff and asked to submit their recommendations on the online Sarnoff Fellowship Application system.
Recommendations must be submitted by Wednesday, January 7, 2009.
