GIVE TO THE IGB
In 1977, Carl R. Woese overturned one of the major dogmas of biology with his discovery of the Archaea, the third domain of life. The methods he utilized involving ribosomal RNA have become the standard approach used to identify and classify all organisms today. As a faculty member of the University of Illinois for nearly 50 years and a founding member of the Institute for Genomic Biology, we honor the legacy of Carl R. Woese with the establishment of the Woese Fellowship.
The Woese Fellows will be truly exceptional young scholars who have completed their Ph.D. within the last several years, and are at the forefront of their field in evolution and the emergence of life, or other rapidly developing areas of quantitative biology and genomics. Woese Fellows will combine a quantitative outlook on biology with creative, possibly interdisciplinary, approaches to deep scientific questions, and will be able to take advantage of the stimulating IGB environment to carry out independent and collaborative research in a field of genomic biology. Woese Fellows will typically spend two to three years conducting research in one or more of the several research themes in the Institute. An annual salary of $55,000 will be provided, with a yearly stipend of $10,000 to be used in support of research.
