Graduate Fellowship available for Biomimicry PhD
We are excited to announce that our Biomimicry Affiliate institutions, the University of Akron and the Cleveland Institute of Art, have teamed up to offer not only a one of a kind graduate degree program in biomimicry (the Integrated Bioscience (IB) PhD), but now there’s also a Biomimicry Research Fellowship available to IB PhD applicants. The program is led by Biomimicry 3.8 Institute Fellows Peter H. Niewiarowski (U of A) and Doug Paige (CIA).
The Biomimicry Research Fellowship provides students with a $20,000 stipend and full tuition and carries a work obligation of 16-20 hours per week. Work placements will be made depending on each student’s background and include the following areas: supporting K-12 teachers in biomimicry curriculum development, working on biomimetic R&D projects, and serving as a teaching assistant for undergraduate courses.
Please encourage you students to apply! This is an expressly interdisciplinary program open to students with diverse backgrounds and there is a strong interest in attracting applicants with skill sets in design and engineering.
