USDA NATIONAL NEEDS DOCTORAL FELLOWSHIPS 
IN PLANT BIOTECHNOLOGY AT IOWA STATE UNIVERSITY

For Work in:
           PLANT BIOCHEMISTRY
           PLANT MOLECULAR BIOLOGY
           PLANT PHYSIOLOGY

Iowa State University is rapidly becoming one of the premier training 
grounds in the country for plant biotechnology.  In recognition of this, 
the Interdepartmental Plant Physiology Major (IPPM) at Iowa State has 
been awarded additional USDA National Needs Graduate Fellowships in Plant 
Biotechnology.  IPPM provides research opportunities stressing the 
development of a strong background in fundamental biology, biochemistry, 
and molecular biology.  The Fellowships provide stipends of $17,000/year 
for three years to highly qualified Ph.D. students.  Additional graduate 
fellowships and assistantships also are available from IPPM.  

Always known for its strong programs in traditional genetics and plant 
breeding, with the advent of a $50,000,000 biotechnology initiative in 
the late 1980’s, Iowa State has become a leader in plant and animal 
biotechnology.  Facilities are excellent.  Numerous outstanding faculty 
who were hired under this initiative have now established themselves as 
dynamic, active, well-funded researchers on the cutting edge of plant 
biotechnology research.  Rather than huge labs in which the ‘big name’ 
leader is rarely seen, here at Iowa State, graduate students enjoy the 
personal attention and personal excitement of small and medium-sized, but 
very active labs.  Upon graduation, successful students have their choice 
of positions in industry or as postdocs in the finest research 
institutions.
