This program is designed for early career faculty whose research and expertise align with the IGI’s scientific strategy of advancing biomedical applications with precision genomics. The IGI will select one Shurl & Kay Curci Foundation (SKCF) Faculty Scholar each year for five consecutive years. Roberto Zoncu received the inaugural award 2017 and Dengke Ma received the second award in 2018.
Faculty in the first four years of their career at UC Berkeley, UC San Francisco, UC Davis, UC Santa Cruz, and Stanford are eligible to apply. A $179K award will provide support over two years for postdoc and/or graduate student stipends, supplies, equipment, and other related expenses. Apply by April 30th. More information is available here.
We encourage the development and application of next-generation genome engineering technology and wish to combine resources and expertise whenever possible. To achieve this goal, the IGI is actively seeking new members through partnerships with scientists from both academic institutions and the biotechnology industry to add to our ongoing collaborations with academic and commercial partners. If you have an innovative idea for a collaborative project and that will complement our current portfolio, please email [email protected] or look for an upcoming IGI request for proposals in your area of expertise.
IGI Postdoctoral Fellowships provide financial support for promising postdoctoral researchers to pursue exciting research projects in cutting-edge genomic engineering.
