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 PhD within the last several years, and who are looking for a stimulating and supportive interdisciplinary environment to carry out independent and collaborative research in the field of anticancer drug discovery and/or regenerative biology and tissue engineering. IGB Fellows will typically spend two or more years conducting research, with an annual salary is $54,000 in addition to a $7,500 allowance. 

We are seeking individuals with the following: experience in medicinal chemistry, chemical biology, cancer research, comparative genomics, veterinary oncology, or a related discipline to conduct research on the discovery of novel anticancer compounds; or with experience in emerging topics in regenerative medicine and tissue engineering including biomaterials, (stem) cell biology, engineered cancer models, immunomodulation, microfluidics, tissue-on-a-chip, three-dimensional printing, and drug delivery. Fellows will have the opportunity to engage with the Cancer Center at Illinois, an engineering-based cancer research institute, to optimize their independent research as well as that of the Principal Investigator. 

Applicants should submit a CV, a research summary, and the names of three recommenders who can write letters on their behalf. This information should be sent to in advance of the closing date.
