Fellowships at IPI

At IPI, we aim to equip the next generation of scientist-entrepreneurs with the necessary skills and knowledge to ensure success as academics, industrial scientists and entrepreneurs. We are looking for highly motivated, scientifically curious, and intellectually creative candidates to train as Innovation Postdoctoral Fellows, Discovery Postdoctoral Fellows, and Entrepreneurial Fellows.

Innovation Postdoctoral Fellows. Innovation Fellows will work with Platform leaders and core Affiliated IPI Faculty to develop novel technologies, platforms and approaches to protein science. Examples include improving antibody discovery platforms, engineering novel properties into proteins, developing new methods for identifying pairs of receptors and ligands, and creating novel platforms for protein expression or drug discovery. Research must be fully publishable.

Discovery Postdoctoral Fellows. Discovery Fellows will work with Platform leaders and core Affiliated IPI Faculty to use IPI platforms to discover new biological principles. Examples include identifying antibodies to target proteins for which good reagents are not currently available that enable discovering novel functional properties or partners of target proteins.  Research must be fully publishable.

Entrepreneurial Fellows. Successful Innovation or Discovery Postdoctoral Fellows can transition to Entrepreneurial Fellows. The purpose of these fellowships is to allow technical innovations or discoveries to be developed sufficiently to enable a career in Academia, patents, or company formation.


  • Ph.D. in Biochemistry, Biophysics, Engineering or related field
  • Demonstrated track record of publications and productivity

Applications should include: a cover letter, CV/resume, and list of three reference.
