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

Graduate students conduct research in the following fields:

  • basic neuroscience
  • imaging technology
  • evolutionary biology
  • computational biology
  • physics
  • chemistry
  • related fields of research

Students will conduct research at Janelia for a minimum of one year and a maximum of 3 years and will work with at least one research mentor at Janelia. 

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 who will provide scientific and career guidance.
