Janelia Junior Fellows
Junior fellows at Janelia Farm are postdoctoral fellows who develop their own research programs and work with minimal direct advising. They are appointed for a period of up to three years with a possible two year renewal. Junior fellows are mentored by two or more people. Mentors may be Janelia Farm lab heads, visiting scientists from other institutions and members of project teams. Junior fellows control a budget, which supports their own salary and benefits, lab supplies, and travel expenses. They work in their mentors' lab and office space. Junior fellows do not recruit or supervise staff.
The junior fellow position is intended for individuals at an early career stage and/or people who have specific research plans but value the guidance and collaboration of more experienced mentors. While Junior Fellows may co-author papers with their mentors, this is not assumed and they may publish as sole authors. We intend that co-authorship should only follow from active collaboration.
The next application deadline is December 1, 2011.
