The Human Genome Distinguished Postdoctoral Fellowships were initiated in FY 1991 by the DOE Office of Health and Environmental Resesrch (OHER) to support genome research by recent doctoral degree recipients. Fellowships of up to 2 years are tenable at any DOE, university, or private laboratory if the proposed advisor at that laboratory receives at least $150,000 per year in support from OHER for Human Genome Program research. Fellows earn stipends of $37,500 the first year and $40,500 the second. Eligible applicants must be U.S. citizens or permanent resident aliens and must have received their doctoral degrees within 3 years of the earliest possible starting date, which is May 1 of the appointment year.
The Oak Ridge Institute for Science and Education (ORISE), administrator of the fellowships, prepares and distributes program literature to universities and laboratories across the country, accepts applications and convenes a panel to make award recommendations, and issues stipend checks to fellows. The review panel identifies finalists from which DOE chooses the award winners. Up to six awards will be made each year. Deadline for the FY 1995 fellowship cycle is February 1, 1995.
