Announcing the Dartmouth SYNERGY/Celdara Medical High-Potential Entrepreneurs’ Fellowships (DS-CHEF)
The Program provides experiential learning opportunities to student and post-doctoral researchers affiliated with Dartmouth SYNERGY through fellowships at Celdara Medical, a local biotechnology company. Following a highly successful first year, this year we are expanding the Program significantly. Entrepreneurial skills are highly valued in most high-impact careers, including academia, biotech, health care, private practice, investing, and consulting. The Program requires a commitment of 1 day/week over a period of 9 months. This is expected to be in addition to the participants’ current responsibilities. The Fellowship is funded ($2,500 plus an hourly stipend) and will expose participants to the gamut of executive skills including critical thinking, persuasion, and judgment by exposure to many of the functions of a small, entrepreneurial organization, including competitive analysis, analytical marketing, regulatory affairs, intellectual property issues, and legal and financial management. Applications will be evaluated by a joint Dartmouth/Celdara Medical committee. The Fellows will begin in the fall of 2017.Eligibility:
Interested applicants should submit a cover letter (2-page maximum) and their CV to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than September 30, 2017.
- Senior graduate students (at least 3 years into terminal degree), including MDs and dual degrees (e.g. MD/PhD, MD/MBA), as well as post-doctoral researchers
- Nomination by PI (if applicable)/Chair (if not)
