New Research Opportunities for Grad Students at NIMBioS

grads_webversion (small)NIMBioS is excited to unveil its newest research and educational opportunity: the Visiting Graduate Student Fellowship. The fellowship supports visits for up to several months and is designed to facilitate graduate student training while fostering research at the interface of mathematics and biology.

Graduate students at the beginning stages of linking theory and data are strongly encouraged to apply. Office space and a workstation with access to all NIMBioS computational resources will be provided. Financial support for travel and housing expenses as well as a per diem to cover other incidental expenses (e.g. meals) will also be provided.

“NIMBioS is excited to launch the new fellowship, which allows graduate students to extend their learning and research through short-term residencies of several weeks or months at a national institute. In addition to interacting with NIMBioS senior personnel, postdoctoral fellows and other visiting scientists, participating students will be encouraged to engage in numerous NIMBioS-related activities during their stay. We hope to provide participants with a rich, productive environment from which to learn,” said Alison Buchan, NIMBioS associate director for graduate education and UTK associate professor of microbiology.

Applications are accepted and considered year-round. Notifications will typically be made within two months of application receipt. For more information about how to apply, click here.
