HHMI Investigator Competition
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
The Investigator Program is open to individuals who:
- Hold a PhD and/or MD (or the equivalent).
- Have a tenured or tenure-track position as an assistant professor or higher academic rank (or the equivalent) at an eligible US institution. Federal government employees are not eligible.
- Have more than five, but no more than 15, years of post-training, professional experience. To meet this requirement, the applicant’s first post-training professional appointment must have begun no earlier than March 1, 2008, and no later than April 1, 2018.
- Are the principal investigator on one or more active, national peer-reviewed research grants with an initial duration of at least three years as of April 1, 2023. Mentored awards and training grants do not qualify. Multi-investigator grants may qualify.
