For 2023-2024, Fred Hutch welcomes applications from potential fellows who aim to work with faculty mentors in the following disciplines and sub-fields:

Seeking Applicants

Fred Hutch seeks applicants whose research and service will contribute to diversity and equal opportunity in higher education. The program is particularly interested in scholars with the potential to bring to their research the critical perspective that comes from their non-traditional educational background or understanding of the experiences of groups historically underrepresented in higher education.

We encourage you to apply even if you aren’t sure where your research best aligns within our institution (please see disciplines and sub disciplines above), or who might be an ideal PI to work with. We may be able to help match you. This is not a guarantee of a position, but we will do our best to work with eligible candidates.
