Industrial Fellowship Program
In 2008, the Biotechnology Center instituted a fellowship program for Ph.D.-trained scientists interested in transitioning into scientific careers in industry. This program allows fellows to work at NC biotechnology companies for two-year fellowships to gain industry-oriented research experience and thus improve their competitiveness for high-level industry scientific positions. In the past three years since its inception, 13 NC companies have been recipients of the program. A NC Company interested in applying for the IFP is required to have at least 10 full time employees. Typically, five companies are awarded a fellow each year. Read more here.
