1993 DOE Postdoctoral Fellowships Announced

The DOE Office of Health and Environmental Research has announced that three people have accepted Human Genome Distinguished Postdoctoral Fellowships for 1993. The winners will conduct research for up to 2 years at DOE and university laboratories that have substantial research efforts supported by the DOE Human Genome Program. Fellows have the opportunity to attend contractor-grantee and professional meetings, where they can interact with other investigators.

Names of the 1993 fellows and their majors, graduate institutions, host laboratories, and research plans are given below.

  • JEFFREY ELBERT, chemistry (Northwestern University), will work with Gilbert Brown at Oak Ridge National Laboratory to develop labels for DNA sequencing.
  • JOHN KECECIOGLU, computer science (University of Arizona), will develop algorithms for sequence analysis with Dan Gusfield at the University of California, Davis.
  • MARK NEFF, genetics (University of Virginia), will work with Jasper Rine at Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory to characterize the genetic basis of dog behavioral traits through linkage maps.

These fellowships carry a stipend of $37,500 for the first year and $40,500 the second. The fellowship program is administered by the Science and Engineering Education Division of the Oak Ridge Institute for Science and Education [P.O. Box 117; Oak Ridge, TN 37831-0117 (615/576-9934, Fax: -0202)].

The next application deadline is February 1, 1994.

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.
