Profesores pueden nominar a un estudiante graduado para ser considerado a participar del simposio

 We are currently seeking nominations of students to be considered for the 13th Annual St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital National Graduate Student Symposium (NGSS). This exceptional academic and professional development opportunity for PhD-level students will be held March 25-29, 2014, on the St. Jude campus in Memphis, TN.

The NGSS is an all-expenses-paid symposium to which 40 of the top PhD-level graduate students from around the country are invited to participate. To be eligible, students must be U.S. citizens or permanent residents, and their estimated graduation date must be between April 2014 and July 2015.

Preference will be given to students whose work is relevant to the ongoing research at St. Jude. Information about our current research programs is available at, and the St. Jude Scientific Report can be viewed at

Neither the symposium nor the application process is advertised; thus, students can apply only if they are nominated by a faculty advisor. There is no limit to the number of students an individual can nominate; however, nominations must be received by October 31, 2013. Please feel free to forward this information to your Graduate Program Directors or other faculty members who may wish to nominate their best students to attend this event.

Invitations to apply will be sent to nominated students in November, and completed applications must be received by December 5, 2013. A committee of St. Jude faculty members will review all applications and select the students who will be invited to attend the symposium. Those selected will be notified by January 24, 2013.

To nominate one (or more) PhD candidates to be invited to apply for the NGSS, please visit and submit the student’s name, e-mail address, and approximate graduation date using the nomination form. Nomination of exceptional under-represented minority students is encouraged.

For students graduating before April 2014 who are interested in postdoctoral fellowships at St. Jude, please contact

I would be happy to answer any questions you may have regarding the symposium or postdoctoral opportunities at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
