Arc Science Fellows Program
The Arc Science Fellows program is designed for outstanding early career scientists who are seeking an opportunity to transition to a principal investigator position directly after their doctoral training. To accelerate independent careers, this program provides Arc Fellows with leadership training and full salary and research support for their group.
Arc Science Fellows are appointed for a five-year term at Arc, with a formal check-in after three years, and are employed by the Institute. Science Fellows will be independent group leaders who pursue research agendas with a combination of innovative technologies, originality, and risk that are unlikely to be supported by traditional funding sources.
This program is targeted to individuals who have completed their graduate training (e.g., PhD, MD, MD/PhD) within the last two years. Individuals who are authorized to work in the US as well as those who require visa sponsorship are eligible.
