Postbaccalaureate Paid Research Opportunity with Stowers Institute for Medical Research

The Stowers Institute for Medical Research is accepting applications for Stowers Research Scholars. 

This program is a paid one-year mentored postbaccalaureate research fellowship. Through guided research experience and academic career mentoring, this program aims to increase the number of NIH-defined underrepresented students in fundamental biological research. This year, up to three applicants will be selected to start the program in June.

This opportunity is open to US citizens or permanent residents from diverse backgrounds with a BA or BS in a STEM field who are interested in pursuing graduate education in basic biological sciences. Selection preference will be given to members of communities traditionally underrepresented in STEM as defined by the NIH. Compensation is highly competitive and prior laboratory experience is not required.
