The Department of Physics at The University of Chicago invites applications for the 2023-2026 Biological Physics Fellowship.

This three-year award carries an annual stipend of $60,000, and an allocation of $4,000 per year for research expenses. The purpose of this fellowship is to enable an early-career scientist to work either independently or in close association with the members of the Physics Department, often in collaboration with researchers across the physical sciences, biological sciences and molecular engineering at Chicago.
