HHMI Creates 16 More Postdoc Positions

Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI) announced earlier this week
that it will collaborate with four other foundations to establish 16
more postdoc positions at its Janelia Farms Research Campus in
Virginia. The four partner foundations are the Jane Coffin Childs
Memorial Fund, the Helen Hay Whitney Foundation, the
Damon Runyon Cancer Research Foundation, and the Life Sciences Research
Foundation.

While the 16 postdocs will conduct their research
at HHMI, the partner organizations will screen the candidates and make
the awards. The postdoctoral associates, as they are called at HHMI,
will have 3-year terms and, according to the HHMI Web site,
work under the supervision of a resident research group leader or HHMI
Fellow. HHMI says it intends to expand the number of postdocs supported
by this program to 48 positions.
