We invite applications for Junior Fellows from biochemists, biologists, chemists, computer scientists, engineers, geneticists, mathematicians, neurobiologists, physicists, and statisticians who are passionate in their pursuit of important problems in basic scientific and technical research.

JFRC Junior Fellows are post-doctoral fellows who develop their own research program and work with minimal direct advising. They are appointed for a period of up to three years, with a possible two year extension, and are not normally renewable. Junior Fellows are mentored by two or more people, who may be Janelia Farm lab heads, and/or visiting scientists from other institutions. They control a budget, which supports their own salary and benefits, lab supplies and travel expenses. They work in their mentors' lab and office space. Junior Fellows do not recruit or supervise staff.

The Junior Fellow position is intended individuals at an early career stage, and/or people who have specific research plans but value the guidance and collaboration of more experienced mentors. While Junior Fellows may co-author papers with their mentors, this is not assumed and they may publish as sole authors. We intend that co-authorship should only follow from active collaboration.
