The Molecular Biophysics Training Program (MBTP) at the University of Wisconsin-Madison receives funding through the National Institute of General Medical Sciences Institutional Training Grant mechanism (NIH T32 GM08293) to train outstanding students in molecular biophysics.
The trainees typically earn doctoral degrees in Biochemistry, Biophysics, Chemical and Biological Engineering, Chemistry, Physiology, or a closely related field. Trainees receive a stipend from NIH that replaces the need for a research assistantship funded by a professor’s research grant. These prestigious positions are offered only to students entering graduate school with outstanding credentials and a strong interest in pursuing a career in biophysical science. The traineeships are open to citizens and permanent residents of the United States.
