Call For Applications: Otis Williams Postdoctoral Fellowship

The Otis Williams Fund at the Santa Barbara Foundation will provide two years of support for post-doctoral research training at the interface of biology and engineering at the University of California, Santa Barbara. This fellowship is intended to support traditional biomedical fields such as biochemistry, molecular biology, and cell biology coupled with UCSB's unique strengths in materials, computing, and mechanical, chemical, and electrical engineering. The highest priority applications would be interdisciplinary bioengineering projects, potentially in partnership with other members of the medical research, education and delivery fields in Santa Barbara. Application deadline is April 20, 2018.

The Deans will evaluate the fellowship applications with the assistance of a committee comprised of faculty from both Engineering and the Sciences in addition to representatives from organizations in the Santa Barbara community engaged in medical research activity. Applications will be reviewed by the members of the Research Committee, with members excusing themselves from review of any application in which they are involved as investigator or co-investigator, or when their participation in the review would constitute a conflict of interest. In reviewing applications, outside opinions may be solicited if the Committee deems it appropriate. Applications that are incomplete, insufficiently documented or which do not follow the instructions will be returned without review.

Annual support will be a salary of up to $52,000 DOE, plus benefits and a $5,000 supply budget.
