The Janelia Joint Graduate Program is a fully-funded, collaborative PhD program for independent, committed graduate scholars in partnership with The Johns Hopkins University, the University of Chicago, and the University of Cambridge.

Graduate scholars in the program spend their first year at the partner university and then reside at Janelia for the remaining years of the program to conduct their thesis research. Degrees are granted by the partner university. Scholars have two supervisors, one at Janelia and the other at the partner university.

Graduate scholars conduct research in the following fields:

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

The program is intentionally small, which allows us to meet each scholar's individual needs. Graduate scholars benefit from considerable personal attention in the laboratory to support their training and professional development.
