Research and Education in Nanotoxicology @WVU
Renewal applications due March 1, 2017.
New Applicant Award decisions will be made on a rolling basis beginning March 31, 2017
A National Science Foundation grant will support outstanding graduate students to pursue interdisciplinary doctoral-level research in nanotoxicology and related areas. Students will earn degrees in their home departments, but will have extensive opportunities in other WVU labs, as well as industrial and government research opportunities.
Before beginning this online application:
Please access the linked IGERT REN@WVU Application Information Packet to prepare for this online submission.
Please prepare to submit an undergraduate (and graduate-if applicable) during this online submission.
• Strong preference will be given to students early in their academic career.
• You must be pursuing a doctorate-leading research program in math, science or engineering. Students intending to pursue a terminal Master’s degree are not eligible.
• The National Science Foundation requires that trainees be U.S. Citizens or Permanent Residents.
• Although trainees earn their degree in one department, the IGERT program requires each trainee to have formal co-advisors, with one advisor specializing in nanomaterials production/characterization and the other in biological or biomedical research. In general, this means that one advisor will come from HSC and the other from ECAS or CEMR.
• All application materials, including recommendation letters, must be received by the application deadline. No late materials will be accepted.
• If sufficient progress is being made, trainees may renew their traineeship for a second year. There is an additional page of questions for renewal applications. These do not have to be answered by new applicants.
