Carl R. Woese Institute for Genomic Biology

Where Science Meets Society

Get Involved


The Carl R. Woese Institute for Genomic Biology at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign offers a number of fellowships for truly exceptional young scholars who have completed their Ph.D. within the last several years, and are looking for a stimulating and supportive interdisciplinary environment to carry out independent and collaborative research in the field of genomic biology.  IGB Fellows will typically spend two years conducting research in one of several research themes in the Institute, and ideally this research will also overlap with two or more of these thematic areas.  A personalized mentoring plan will be developed for each Fellow. Annual salary is $50,000.
