Thermo Fisher Scientific is sponsoring Thermo Fisher Scientific fellowships in relation to the new UConn Thermo Fisher Scientific Center for Advanced Microscopy and Materials Analysis.

Five fellowships in the amount of $10,000 will be given this year. Students are eligible for 1 award during their Ph.D. program at UConn.

The guidelines for Thermo Fisher Scientific fellowships are as follows:

  1. All Thermo Fisher Scientific Fellows must be Ph.D. level candidates in good standing at the University of Connecticut.
  2. All Thermo Fisher Scientific Fellows must show research competence in the area of Electron Microscopy.
  3. All Thermo Fisher Scientific Fellows must use Thermo Fisher Scientific instrumentation and follow rules of the UFCEM.
  4. All Thermo Fisher Scientific Fellows will participate in UConn Thermo Fisher Scientific events such as poster sessions, workshops, and meetings.
  5. All Thermo Fisher Scientific Fellows will acknowledge their Thermo Fisher Scientific fellowships in their research publications, theses, and presentations.

Five page proposals will be due June 30, 2018 for the fourth annual round of proposals. Proposals should contain a resume of the student, endorsement of their major research director, and a research plan including specific usage of Thermo Fisher Scientific instrumentation. If a previous Thermo Fisher Scientific fellowship has been awarded to that research group, then results of that work should be presented including a list of presentations and publications. All content including figures, references, letters and plan should fit in 5 pages of 12 font single spaced writing. Awards will be determined by the Director of the UConn Thermo Fisher Scientific Center for Advanced Microscopy and Materials Analysis, Steven L. Suib, in consultation with Thermo Fisher Scientific. Send all fellowship proposals to steven.suib@uconn.edu.
