an IBP member program

Academic Level:
Graduate Students (PhD)

Applicants for full-time Bioinformatics PhD study who are U.S. citizens or U.S. permanent residents are automatically eligible for a Bioinformatics NIH T32 Fellowship. The NIH Fellowships are awarded on a competitive basis. We anticipate 4 NIH Fellows entering each fall. The Bioinformatics NIH Fellowship provides the following:

A stipend of $33,000 per year plus tuition for study leading to the Bioinformatics PhD degree.

Eligibility for an International Research Fellowship (IIRF) which will pay your travel and living expenses, up to $11,000, for travel to an international partner university for 3 to 4 months to conduct collaborative research in support of your dissertation. We currently have collaborating faculty in Germany, Japan, and Israel. Approval of other partners is encouraged.

Up to $1,500 for travel to a professional meeting to give an invited talk on your research.

Up to $3,000 for publication/page charges for a journal publication on which you are first author.

The travel and publication benefits remain available to you for as long as you remain a full-time student in good academic standing and successfully advance to candidacy. The International Research Fellowships generally become available after the 2nd year of training.

Stipend and tuition support after the first year is independent of the NIH Fellowship and will be provided in the form of a Research Assistantship by your dissertation advisor.
