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 www.stjude.org/basic-science-faculty, and the St. JudeScientific Report can be viewed at www.stjude.org/sci-rpt.
Students can apply only if they are nominated by a faculty advisor by October 31, 2013. 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.
Faculty advisors can visit the nomination page to nominate a PhD candidate. For students graduating before April 2014 who are interested in postdoctoral fellowships at St. Jude, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
