Keystone Symposia Fellows Program

The Keystone Symposia on Molecular and Cellular Biology announces a new, highly unique, cutting-edge, life science fellowship program for postdoctoral students and new assistant professors engaged in laboratory-based research. As participants in the process by which Keystone Symposia programming is determined, Fellows are actively engaged in intensive discussions with renowned, well-established scientists around the globe. Successful candidates will have the opportunity to engage the “giants in the field” through a variety of formats including online study groups, teleconferences and several one-day, face-to-face meetings.

All candidates must hold a Ph.D. or M.D. in a life science discipline and be actively engaged in laboratory research. Applications from scientists in industry at the postdoctoral or early research scientist level will be considered. Applicants must also be able to document a commitment to inclusiveness within the life sciences field, as well as experience in one-to-one mentoring, teaching or experiential learning with students from one of the traditional U.S. URM groups named above. Fellows are required to complete and submit regular curricular assignments throughout the program period. While these may vary from year to year, candidates should plan on 6-8 written submissions, each ranging in length from 2-4 typed written pages. Travel to two required Scientific Advisory Board meetings in January and June will be funded by Keystone Symposia.

Candidates will be selected by the Keystone Symposia Fellowship Admissions Committee. Applications must be submitted by September 1, 2010 and notification will be made by October, with a start date of November 1, 2010. For additional information, please contact Laina King, Ph.D., Director, Diversity in Life Science Programs, at 970-262-1630 ext. 119 or
