Dear 3DEM & CCPEM, 

I would like to draw your attention to a new post-doctoral fellowship program that has been started at the University of Michigan. The Michigan Life Sciences Fellows Program (http://fellows.lsi.umich.edu/home <http://fellows.lsi.umich.edu/home>) will provide a 3-year salary stipend in addition to research and travel budgets to promising applicants that will become the next generation of scientific leaders. The goal of this program is to help train the next generation of scientists by providing both financial support as well as faculty mentoring. The deadline is October 16, 2017.

While this program is open to all disciplines, we wanted to make sure that the cryo-EM community was aware given that incoming fellows can take advantage of the cryo-EM facility at the Life Sciences Institute at the University of Michigan. Here, we have a Titan Krios + K2 (with Volta Phase Plate, energy filter and K3 being installed in the coming year), Talos-Arctica+K2, Tecnai T12 + US4000 CCD, and Morgagni screening microscope, along with a private cryo-EM cluster and dedicated IT support staff. 

Please forward along to interested applicants. See below for official posting information.

Michigan Life Sciences Fellows Program (Postdoctoral Research Fellow) : Ann Arbor, MI, United States

The University of Michigan invites applications for a new postdoctoral research program, the Michigan Life Sciences Fellows — a unique, multidisciplinary community of scholars that provides mentorship focused on creating the next generation of leaders in the biosciences.

What the fellowship provides
The award fully funds three years of mentored postdoctoral work at our nationally ranked Medical School, College of Pharmacy, College of Literature, Science, and the Arts, or the Life Sciences Institute. The fellowship includes an annual stipend of $60,000 and subsidized benefits, $25,000 toward independent research, and a $2,000 annual travel stipend.

Fellows will conduct their research with a level of independence that prepares them to apply competitively for fully independent faculty positions at the end of fellowship.

Toward this goal, fellows will also be paired with a "mentoring committee” that includes their primary mentor, another leading U-M scientist in their field, and a prominent scientist from outside of U-M.

Beyond their individual laboratory research projects, the program will support fellows with additional training in a broad set of skills necessary for a successful career in research, including scientific writing, oral presentation, grant writing, lab management, and job application.

What we seek
The Michigan Life Sciences Fellows program seeks researchers of exceptional promise in the biological sciences with broad intellectual interests and a keen desire to pursue a career in research.

Applicants must be graduate students in their final year of schooling, or graduates fewer than six months post-degree (Ph.D., M.D., Pharm.D., M.D./Ph.D., or Pharm.D./Ph.D.) at the time of application. Candidates from outside of the U.S. are welcome.

Although this program is open to all, women, underrepresented minorities and first-generation college students are strongly encouraged to apply.
