Do not begin the application unless you have already corresponded with a UW faculty member and received a letter of support that you can include with your application. Current UW students and postdocs will not be considered for this program.
The attachment to your application should include the following:
- A 1-page statement of research accomplishments
- A curriculum vitae (CV)
- A 1-2 paragraph letter from the prospective UW mentor, confirming commitment to provide a position in his or her lab and 1/3 of the salary and benefits.
- A 1-page summary of the proposed research project to be prepared by the fellow. Prospective fellows are encouraged to solicit advice from their faculty nominator
If you include the email addresses for your referees in the application form, the system will automatically send them a reminder to submit their reference letters to firstname.lastname@example.org. However, applicants are ultimately responsible for ensuring their reference letters are submitted on time.
Application Deadline & Review
Applications will not be considered complete or reviewed unless all 4 of the items listed above are included within the PDF and all 3 letters of recommendation from your referees are received by email.
The annual application deadline is January 15. Decisions will be made and communicated in February each year.
