Howard Hughes Medical Institute is pleased to
announce a national competition for the appointment of outstanding scientists
as HHMI investigators. This competition will enable HHMI to strengthen
its community of basic researchers and physician scientists who bring
innovative approaches to the study of biological problems through biomedical
disciplines, including plant biology, as well as adjacent fields of
evolutionary biology, biophysics, chemical biology, biomedical engineering,
and computational biology.
This investigator competition places no restrictions on the number of applications from any eligible institution. Researchers with faculty appointments will apply directly; prior institutional endorsement is not part of the application process. These appointments are highly selective. Those candidates with outstanding records who have shown evidence of significant originality and accomplishments are encouraged to apply. HHMI welcomes applications from women and members of minority groups that are under-represented in biomedical sciences.
For additional information regarding the HHMI Investigator Program and this competition please link to: www.hhmi.org/inv2015.
Establish eligibility and apply here: www.hhmi.org/research/application/comp2015
The deadline for applications is June 3, 2014,
at 3:00 PM (Eastern Daylight Time). All applications must be submitted
electronically following instructions on the competition web site.
The application includes the following documents:
Selection of Investigators:
The HHMI review process will include evaluation
of applications by distinguished scientists, leading to the selection
of semifinalists by early 2015. Further review will include a symposium
attended by HHMI scientific leadership and the final advisory panel,
at which each semifinalist will make a brief research presentation.
Finalists will be announced in the spring of 2015, with appointments
as early as September 1, 2015. All applicants should mark their calendars
for the April 13-14, 2015 symposium at HHMI's Janelia Farm Research
