UCLA Collaboratory Fellowship Program

UCLA Collaboratory Fellowship Program

The Collaboratory Fellowship program is a prestigious funding mechanism available to postdocs conducting research in computational biology and bioinformatics.

Postdoctoral fellowships are awarded to a select group of young scientists who have expert bioinformatics skills, a track record in collaboration and mentoring, and an aptitude and interest in developing further teaching experience.

The fellowship responsibilities are designed to provide career development opportunities that are complementary to those of their host laboratory, namely in developing a collaborative network and broadening research impact and training; and also in developing a track-record in teaching. Fellowships are typically in the amount of $25k, and made for a renewable one-year period.

The application deadline is May 15, 2017.
