Fellowships

Schmidt Fellows Program
The Schmidt Fellows program, funded by Eric and Wendy Schmidt, empowers brilliant early-career scientists working at the intersection of biomedical and quantitative science to fearlessly take on some of the most critical challenges of quantitative biology's next decade. Fellows establish independent research programs prior to accepting faculty positions, and develop and/or apply systematic, unbiased and comprehensive strategies – computational and/or experimental – to tackle these challenges.

Broad Fellows Program
In 2017, the institute also welcomed two Broad Fellows, funded through other sources. These fellows are similar to the Schmidt Fellows in that they establish independent research programs prior to accepting faculty positions and work at the intersection of biomedical and quantitative science to tackle the challenges of biology’s next decade.

Sperling Family Fellowship in Precision Healthcare
The Sperling Family Fellowship in Precision Healthcare leverages the strengths of two world-renowned institutions – the superb clinical care, expert bioinformatics, and rich data sources of Brigham and Women’s Hospital, and the basic science, computational, and genomics sophistication of the Broad Institute – to advance a translational research project with the potential to transform how we care for patients.

Wallenberg Family Foundation Fellowship
The Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation have established a postdoctoral fellowship program for the purpose of bringing outstanding young Swedish scientists to study and perform research for one to two years at the Broad Institute. After completing their postdoctoral training at the Broad Institute, fellows are given additional research support upon their return to Sweden to continue to benefit from their experiences at the Broad Institute, and to share those benefits with the scientific community of Sweden.
