The Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI) is announcing a national open competition to appoint approximately 25 new Investigators. This effort will expand HHMI’s community of more than 260 Investigators who perform basic biological research at about 60 research institutions across the nation.
Each HHMI Investigator will receive roughly $8 million over a seven-year term, which is renewable pending favorable scientific review. HHMI encourages Investigators to push their research fields into new areas of inquiry.
The HHMI Investigator Program competition is open to basic researchers and physician scientists from more than 300 eligible institutions who catalyze research in basic and biomedical sciences, plant biology, evolutionary biology, biophysics, chemical biology, biomedical engineering, and computational biology.
Deadline: March 21, 2023
