Howard Hughes Medical Institute: Hanna H. Gray Fellows Program
Deadline: December 1, 2021
Category: Biomedical; life science; biology; biomedical engineering; computational biology,
HHMI seeks to increase diversity in the biomedical research community. The goal of the Hanna H. Gray Fellows Program is to recruit and retain individuals from gender, racial, ethnic, and other groups underrepresented in the life sciences, including those individuals from disadvantaged backgrounds.
Following the “people, not projects” philosophy of HHMI, the competition is open to those dedicated to basic research from both doctoral and/or medical training paths in the biomedical and life science disciplines, including plant biology, evolutionary biology, biophysics, chemical biology, biomedical engineering, and computational biology.Fellows have freedom to change their research focus and follow their own curiosity for the duration of the award.
Fellows will receive funding through their academic institution for postdoctoral training and may continue to receive funding during their early career years as independent faculty. The program provides opportunities for career development, including mentoring and networking with others in the HHMI scientific community.
Please contact Lynn Wong if you are interested in applying to this opportunity.
