DOE Awards Human Genome Postdoctoral Fellowships

The DOE Office of Health and Environmental Research has announced the award of six Human Genome Distinguished Postdoctoral Fellowships. The winners, listed below with their graduate departments and host institutions, were selected from 31 applicants.

The fellowship program was created to offer challenging training opportunities for recent doctoral degree recipients to conduct research in support of the DOE Human Genome Program. Up to 2 years are served at university and DOE laboratories having substantial DOE-sponsored genome research. Stipends are $35,000 for the first year and $37,000 for the second.

The fellowship program is administered by the Oak Ridge Institute for Science and Education (ORISE). The next application deadline is February 1, 1993. For more information, contact ORISE at 615/576-9975.

ORISE is managed by Oak Ridge Associated Universities, a nonprofit association of colleges and universities and a management and operating contractor for DOE. ORISE also administers three other DOE fellowship programs: the Alexander Hollaender Distinguished Postdoctoral Fellowship Program for research in the life, biomedical, and environmental sciences; the Global Change Distinguished Postdoctoral Fellowships for research related to global climate change; and the DOE Distinguished Postdoctoral Fellowships for research in the physical sciences, computer sciences, and engineering.

Human Genome Project 1990–2003

The Human Genome Project (HGP) was an international 13-year effort, 1990 to 2003. Primary goals were to discover the complete set of human genes and make them accessible for further biological study, and determine the complete sequence of DNA bases in the human genome. See Timeline for more HGP history.
