The Cell and Molecular Biology Training Grant (CMB TG) currently has funding for 24 trainee positions. Most students are appointed for 2 years of support, pending continued National Institutes of Health (NIH) funding and satisfactory progress in their graduate studies. The minimum appointment is for 12 months of continuous support. The positions are awarded by a Selection Committee consisting of faculty representatives from participating departments. Each spring, eligible students complete an application, which is reviewed by the Selection Committee, and finalists are invited to give a short presentation of their research. The Selection Committee awards positions based on the student¹s application, faculty evaluations and research presentation.
We welcome applications from under-represented minority students, first generation students, students from a disadvantaged background and students with disabilities.
Students apply to the CMB TG during years 2 and 3 of their graduate careers. The CMB TG cannot support students that are in their 5th year and beyond. MSTP and international students are not eligible to apply.
