About the Undergraduate Faculty Research Residency
Faculty from an institution with a diverse undergraduate population are invited to apply to conduct 10 weeks of summer research at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle, Washington under the guidance of an investigator who shares similar research interests. The goals of the faculty research residency program are two-fold. First, this experience should increase the research capabilities of the visiting faculty member, with the goal of leading to external funding at his/her institution. Secondly, this experience will enable visiting science educators to become familiar with the training programs (undergraduate and graduate) available at the FHCRC/University of Washington and thereby broaden the research opportunities available to their undergraduate students.
