The Genome Science Training Program at the University of Michigan
provides support for pre- and post-doctoral training at the
interface of statistical, computational, and molecular genetics
under support from the National Center for Human Genome Research
of the National Institutes of Health.

We expect to award at least three pre-doctoral fellowships and
one post-doctoral fellowship for Fall 1996, with support
potentially available as early as July 1.  Training support may
be for up to three years and is available to US citizens and
permanent residents.

Pre-doctoral trainees can be new applicants to a relevant
University of Michigan graduate program (Biostatistics, Human
Genetics, Biology, Electrical Engineering and Computer Science,
Epidemiology, or Statistics) or continuing Michigan students at
any stage in their graduate studies, but are expected to
undertake a core curriculum consistent with the interdisciplinary
nature of the training program.  Post-doctoral trainees should
have a doctoral degree and a desire to pursue these areas of
study with a University of Michigan faculty member.

Pre-doctoral trainees are provided with full tuition (two
semesters) and a stipend of $10,008 per year.  Post-doctoral
trainees receive the standard NIH stipend level which depends on
years of post-doctoral experience.  All trainees receive travel
funds towards attendance at a scientific meeting.

Applications and nominations should include:  undergraduate and
graduate transcripts, GRE scores, at least three letters of
recommendation from undergraduate or graduate faculty, and a
statement of research interests and experience and training
goals.  The statement should make clear the interdisciplinary
nature of the applicant's interests.

If have any questions about the training program, please contact
me (boehnke at, 313-936-1001).  More information about the
training program also may be found on be found on our web page at

The Training Program Executive Committee will be meeting in mid
March to evaluate and select trainees for the program.
Nominations and applications that reach us by March 1 will
receive full consideration; later submissions will be considered
if positions remain.
