Graduate Students and Postdoctoral Fellows
We welcome student and postdoc applications at all times. If you're a postdoctoral applicant with a strong interest in technology development and translation and have outstanding research achievements, explore the Wyss Technology Development Fellowship section below.
Wyss Technology Development Fellows
The Institute seeks to discover, recruit, encourage and retain individuals of outstanding talent and technical skills to help advance the Institute's Enabling Technology Platforms as Wyss Technology Development Fellows. The Fellowships are intended for brilliant young women and men of great promise with outstanding technical expertise who have completed their doctoral degree within the last five years.
Wyss Clinical Fellows
The Institute seeks to encourage and support outstanding young clinicians with background and interest in engineering or technology development who can help create new transformational bioinspired technologies, to solve unmet medical needs. The Clinical Fellowship is intended for clinical residents who have completed the third year of their clinical residency at one of our medical collaborating institutions and who seek to spend one or two years conducting research targeted towards medical applications.
The Institute will provide support to a limited number of visiting scientists, engineers, designers or industrial experts from other institutions to carry out research and development at the Institute for limited periods of time. Visiting scholars require Wyss Faculty nomination.
If you are an undergraduate student at Harvard and have interest in doing research at the Wyss Institute during the academic year, please contact an Institute faculty member directly. Wyss-funded summer research positions for undergraduates from any university to work at the Wyss will be advertised through the Harvard School of Engineering and Applied Science's REU program.
