Miller Postdoctoral Research Fellowship in Basic Sciences

The Miller Institute for Basic Research in Science invites faculty advisors, department chairs, professors, and research scientists at institutions around the world to submit online nominations for Miller Research Fellowships in the basic sciences.

Required Qualifications

  1. Miller Research Fellowships are intended for exceptional young scientists of great promise who have recently been awarded, or who are about to be awarded the doctoral degree.
  2. Miller Fellows are expected to begin their Fellowship shortly after being awarded their Ph.D.
  3. A short period as a post-doctoral fellow elsewhere does not exclude eligibility, however, candidates who have already completed substantial postdoctoral training are unlikely to be successful except in unusual circumstances.
  4. Postdocs cannot have had more than two years of postdoctoral experience from other institutions, nor been employed as an assistant professor, associate professor or professor, in order to be eligible.
  5. Nominees who are non-US citizens must show eligibility for obtaining J-1 Scholar visa status for the duration of the Miller Fellowship. Non-US citizens will be required to prove English language proficiency prior to award.
