Fellowships and Support
Click here to register your interest in our fellowships and support.
In its first year, New Science has focused on awarding and running fellowships for early-career researchers working in basic life sciences, funding them, placing them in labs, and comprehensively supporting their projects and their personal growth. We are looking forward to running more summer and one-year fellowships, as well as in exploring new fellowship formats and in awarding individual fellowships to scientists at all levels of experience who are passionate about pushing the frontiers of science forward.
For New Science 2022 summer fellowship, we have matched five exceptional early-career scientists who have the potential to inspire radical transformations in their chosen area of research with five top labs at Harvard, Broad Institute, and UC Berkeley. Funded projects investigate the origins of eukaryotic endosymbiosis, map the binding sites on proteins using DNA sequencing, and explore synthetic biology methods to penetrate and destroy bacterial biofilms.
Each fellow receives a stipend of $6,000 per month, as well as $5,000 per month for project costs and $25,000 in computational credits. Fellows work closely with experienced scientists at Harvard, MIT, and the University of California, Berkeley, and with New Science staff to develop and advance their ideas. Each fellowship lasts 12 weeks, from early June to the end of August. See more information about our 2022 summer fellows here.
We are also actively:
- Funding undergraduate, graduate students, postdocs, and those without formal life sciences background.
- Editing scientists' proposals, applications, and general writing.
- Providing ad hoc support in the form of connecting researchers with labs potentially interested in hosting them and their projects, introducing scientists to potential collaborators, and getting scientists statistical, experimental design, and general research help.
- Consulting those interested in the life sciences on the best ways of starting to do science.
Feel free to fill out the expression of interest form if you’re interested in taking part in or being awarded a New Science Fellowship or if it seems there’s something we can be helpful with, either with the things mentioned above or otherwise.
