The Lewis-Sigler Scholars program is aimed at attracting talented early-career scientists (0-2 years from PhD) interested in quantitative approaches to biological systems, supporting their intellectual development, and engaging them in multidisciplinary education. The community of scholars is drawn from the full range of intellectual approaches represented at the Lewis-Sigler Institute for Integrative Genomics. Our Scholars take experimental, theoretical, and/or computational approaches to drive cutting-edge collaborations at the Institute, drawing on their backgrounds in biology, chemistry, computer science, engineering, or physics.There are no open Lewis-Sigler Scholar positions at this time. We will update our Opportunities page when a new search is underway.
