Welcome to the Fellowships Applications Page for the UTMB NIEHS Environmental Toxicology Training Program!
This is the portal through which all prospective applicants must submit their applications for consideration to become fellows in our training program. Please be aware of the following considerations when submitting an application:
- Applicants will typically be UTMB first-year Graduate Students within the UTMB Graduate School of Biological Sciences (GSBS) or UTMB Post-doctoral fellows already within the institution, who have been at UTMB for less than 2 years. At the discretion of the Training Program Director, other non-UTMB Post-doctoral applicants may be invited to apply, but applications from non-invited non-UTMB Post-doctoral applicants will not be considered.
- Because this is a federally-funded training program, prospective applicants should be aware that we can accept only United States citizens or citizens with granted Permanent Resident Status (e.g., "green card"). Applicants not meeting those criteria cannot be considered.
- Before applying, prospective applicants fulfilling the citizenship requirements should contact one or several of our Faculty Trainers listed under "Faculty and Research", work to develop a potential environmental toxicology research project, and then submit a brief description of that project within the application.
- The application process is competitive, committee-reviewed, and typically occurs once per year, although other times may be considered under other circumstances, at the discretion of the Training Program Director, and the needs of the training program.
- Upon acceptance to the program, applicants will be expected to be familiar with, and sign, a letter of training agreement, outlining the expectations associated with being a fellow within our training program.
- Applicants interested in pursuing Pre-Doctoral training in our program, should click on the "Pre-Doctoral Application" Link, while those applicants interested in Post-Doctoral Training should click on the "Post-Doctoral Application" Link, within the box below.
- Post-Doctoral Applicants are required to be aware of the NIH Payback Policy for post-doctoral trainees funded by the T32 mechanism, and are required to account for how they will address fulfillment of this policy (typically with 2 years of contiguous T32 support), within their proposed research project, as described within their application.
