GAANN Fellowship Opportunities: College of Sciences Molecular biophysics and biotechnology

Department of Education Graduate Assistance in Areas of National Need (GAANN) awards are available to PHD students enrolled in Georgia Tech with research interests in molecular biophysics and biotechnology.  Recipients must be U.S. citizens or permanent residents and enrolled in the Ph.D. program and plan to embark on careers in teaching and/or research. The fellowship consists of a stipend up to $30,000 (but which may not exceed the student's level of financial need determined according to federal guidelines) and includes a supervised teaching experience. For additional information on the molecular biophysics program at Georgia Tech, see the following website.

Applicants to the Georgia Tech Ph.D. Programs (Biology, Physics, Chemistry, Biochemistry, Applied Physiology, Bioengineering):

Review of fellowship applications will begin on April 3, 2015 and continue until all awards have been made.  To be considered:

1. Complete an Institute application for admission.

2. Complete the 2015-2016 FAFSA. (Note: Acceptance of subsidized loans and other fellowships will reduce the financial need and possible eligibility for GAANN. Teaching or research assistantships may be coupled with a GAANN fellowship.)

3. Email cam.tyson@cos.gatech.edu describing your prior research experience and interest in the Molecular biophysics and biotechnology program at Georgia Tech.  Please put "Molecular Biophysics GAANN" in the subject line of  your email.

 

Currently Enrolled Ph.D. Students:

Review of fellowship applications will begin on April 3, 2015 and continue until all awards have been made.  To be considered:

1. Submit a personal statement and curriculum vitae (max 5 pages as a single pdf document) to Cam Tyson describing: (i) research or teaching experiences, and (ii) your career goals and how these relate to your experiences and participation in selected programs at GT.   Please send as one pdf document with an email subject line of: Molecular Biophysics GAANN

2. Complete the 2015-2016 FAFSA. (Note: Acceptance of subsidized loans and other fellowships will reduce the financial need and possible eligibility for GAANN. Teaching or research assistantships may be coupled with a GAANN fellowship.)

The goal of the Georgia Tech Molecular Biophysics and Biotechnology GAANN fellowship program is to make a significant contribution to satisfying the nation's needs for Ph.D.s who are optimally trained to embark on research and teaching careers and work at the interface of biological and physical sciences at the molecular level. If selected, GAANN fellows are required to: (i) complete (or have completed) a supervised teaching experience; (ii) participate in the molecular biophysics rotation program in the first semester (first year students only); (iii) complete the biophysics seminar program; (iv) successful complete a course in molecular biophysics (CHEM 6582); (v) and conduct research in molecular biophysics and/or biotechnology fields. Graduate applications, transcripts, personal statements, and financial need will be considered by the GAANN Awards committee to determine finalists.
