Early-career academic scientists in U.S.: Apply for HHMI’s Hanna H. Gray Fellows Program
The Howard Hughes Medical Institute is now accepting applications for its Hanna H. Gray Fellows Program. HHMI created the program “to recruit and retain individuals from gender, racial, ethnic, and other groups underrepresented in the life sciences, including those individuals from disadvantaged backgrounds.”
Fellows receive support of $80,000 annually ($60,000 in salary and $20,000 in additional expenses) for up to four years of postdoctoral training and, if eligible, $270,000 annually in their early career years as independent faculty members.
The program includes opportunities for career development, active mentoring, and involvement in the HHMI scientific community.
The program is open to applicants who:
- Are from gender, racial, ethnic and other groups underrepresented in the life sciences, including those from disadvantaged backgrounds.
- Hold a Ph.D. and/or M.D. (or equivalent);
- U.S. citizens must have a degree from a domestic or an international research institution.
- Non-U.S. citizens must have a degree from a U.S. research institution.
- Have been accepted to join a laboratory as a postdoctoral fellow at a research institution in the U.S.
Note U.S. institutions include Puerto Rico. All degrees must be conferred by the start of the award.
