Through a national competition, the Howard Hughes Medical Institute intends to select up to 30 new biomedical researchers to join its organization. "Those selected in this competition will receive a five-year appointment to HHMI, which is renewable pending favorable scientific review," the organization says of its initiative. HHMI adds that this represents an investment of nearly $200 million in basic biomedical research. Candidates at more than 200 eligible institutions "who study significant biological problems in all of the biomedical disciplines," hold a PhD, MD, or equivalent degree, hold a tenure-track position and more than five, but no more than 15 years' experience as an assistant professor or equivalent, and are the principal investigator on one or more "active, national, peer-reviewed research grants with a duration of at least three years" are eligible to apply directly to HHMI. Applications are due June 12. Additional information — including the list of eligible institutions — is available, here.
