The Janelia Graduate Research Fellowship is a fully-funded, collaborative program for independent, committed PhD graduate students enrolled in accredited doctoral programs in the United States or abroad, and MD and DVM students enrolled at accredited United States medical and veterinary schools.* Required course work at the student’s home institution must be completed before joining Janelia. Degrees are granted by the home institution.

Graduate Research Fellows conduct research in the following fields:

  • Behavioral & Systems Neuroscience
  • Cellular & Molecular Neuroscience
  • Evolution & Genetics
  • Instrumentation & Computational Tool Development
  • Neuronal Cell Biology
  • Optical Physics & Imaging
  • Structural Biology & Biochemistry
  • Theory & Computational Neuroscience

Students will conduct research at Janelia for a minimum of one year and a maximum of three years and will work with one or more research mentors at Janelia who will provide scientific and career guidance.

Janelia’s laboratories are intentionally small, giving graduate students individualized attention from a variety of senior scientists. Each visiting student will be paired with a research mentor.

*MD and DVM students of all nationalities are eligible to apply, if currently enrolled in an MD or DVM program at an accredited U.S. medical or veterinary school.
