The Hilda and Preston Davis Foundation Awards Program for Eating Disorders Research: Senior Postdoctoral Fellows

The COVID-19 pandemic continues to evolve and impact our personal and professional lives. We want to assure our trustees, reviewers, and grantee communities that our TMF staff continues to provide high quality biomedical research grantmaking services. We will do our part to help manage any potential challenges and continue supporting research to the extent that it is possible. Please notify us with any questions or requests.



The primary goal of the new Hilda and Preston Davis Foundation Awards Program for Eating Disorders Research is to support innovative, clinically relevant research that seeks to understand the underlying biology of eating disorders, including anorexia nervosa and bulimia nervosa, leading to improved patient care.  Clinical trials, obesity research, and binge eating research are outside the scope of the program. 

The Davis Foundation Awards Program is a two-stage proposal process.  All applicants will submit an Initial Proposal.  Based upon the review results, invited applicants will receive instruction to submit a Full Proposal.

The Program plans to support up to (2) two-year fellowships based upon experience to Senior Postdoctoral Fellows:

  • Applicants must hold a Ph.D., M.D., or comparable degree and work in non-independent, mentored, training positions, at a non-profit academic, medical or research institutions in the United States;
  • Applicants must have completed at least three (3) years and no more than seven (7) years of full-time postdoctoral research experience.

Applicants must review the Guidelines for additional detail regarding the Program, including Eligibility Requirements, Review Criteria, and Submission Instructions. All relevant materials are accessible via the right panel.  

The Program also supports researchers at the Junior Faculty level. Click Here for more information.
