Each department and institute at Mount Sinai is eligible to nominate, through a defined online portal, one basic/translational or clinical/health services Junior Laureate candidate each year. Nominated candidates will have just completed their doctoral degree and their clinical training, or will have <2 years of postdoctoral experience.
Laureates will be selected competitively—using a holistic approach—based on a candidate’s scientific track record and their future promise as leaders in academic medicine as well as on the host department/institute’s case for how the Laureate will be supported and will complement and interaction synergistically with existing strengths at Mount Sinai. The Selection Committee will be composed of senior basic, translational, clinical, and health services researchers from across the institution. Junior Laureates, appointed at the Instructor level, will be placed on an existing Mount Sinai faculty member’s research team with the express purpose of further developing their own independent research program and, upon achievement of stated metrics (i.e., completion of research milestones, publications, and grants), be automatically transitioned into a Mount Sinai Laureates position, with an independent startup package.

Next Deadline: January 1, 2022
Decisions will be made within 6 weeks after each submission date.
