Guest scientists of HJF may serve as principal investigators for applications/proposals for extramural funding under the auspices of the Foundation, and have access to its wide array of services. All individuals having faculty appointments at the Uniformed Services University (USU), including investigators at the Armed Forces Radiobiology Research Institute (AFRRI), are guest scientists of the Foundation by virtue of their appointments. Other researchers may apply for guest scientist status.
To be considered for appointment as a guest scientist, all non-USU faculty must submit an application, have the academic background and capabilities necessary to conduct academic and research activities and hold an institutional and/or academic position equivalent to assistant professor. Additionally, all guest scientists who are not affiliated with the Department of Defense must have their proposals reviewed for relevance to and consistency with HJF's mission of advancing medical research and education in the military medical community.
