Predoctoral Training Grant in Genetics

Predoctoral Training Grant in Genetics

NIH-funded training grant T32GM008216 has supported predoctoral training in Genetics at UPenn for over 25 years. The grant supports the stipends of 8 dissertation-stage students per year, and also provides these trainees with additional funds for travel to scientific conferences and for purchase of lab supplies. In addition to participating in regular genetics training activities that are available to all students, T32 trainees receive extra mentoring and often serve as pilots for testing out new activities or practices.

Applying for GEN-TG support

New trainees are selected each March by a competitive process. An email announcement soliciting applications will be sent to all BGS students and T32 trainers. Students usually apply in Spring of year 2, prior to taking the Prelim Exam.

Applicants may be members of any BGS graduate group. However, for an applicant to be considered for a position, their academic record should include:
