The CGSB Artist-in-Residence Program brings artists to work within the NYUAD Center for Genomics & Systems Biology. This initiative will bring scientists and forward-looking artists together to collaborate, communicate, interact, and learn, benefitting both science and art and fostering the creative thinking that drives innovation.
The NYUAD CGSB encourages and promotes scientific and cultural interactions by regularly hosting events such as lectures, workshops, and Science Cafés, thus facilitating the exchange of ideas and knowledge between scholars involved with the program and the community. The CGSB Artist-in-Residence Program is an extension of this effort.
The selected artists will actively engage with scientists working on one of the two CGSB-related programs that explore fascinating topics: Biomedicine & Health and Environmental Adaptation and Sustainability.
The CGSB Interdisciplinary Collaboration will foster collaboration among faculty from various research centers and divisions, which will be open to all NYUAD faculty. The ideal interdisciplinary project should be related to the CGSB's research foci and bring together fields of expertise not represented in the CGSB. The proposal should include at least one NYU(AD) CGSB faculty member.
The selected project will receive an operational fund of $25,000 yearly for a two-year duration, and a post-doctoral position (or research support position). The project duration is September 2023 to August 2025.
The CGSB Post-graduation Research Fellowship program is a full-time, one-year research development fellowship program aimed at NYUAD students graduating with a bachelor's degree in fall 2022, spring, or summer 2023.
Researchers in the Center use global or “systems” level approaches to address the organization and function of biological systems at multiple levels: cells, organisms, populations, and ecosystems. This work is grounded in the ability to generate and analyze large datasets, which is revolutionizing the way biological research is conducted and is leading to new holistic views of how organisms develop, function and evolve.
A unifying theme of the Center’s research programs is to understand how genomic information is transformed into the complex molecular networks that underlie cellular and organismal behaviors, how genomes evolve and adapt to changing environmental conditions, and how knowledge about these processes can be used to benefit society and our stewardship of the planet. To tackle these broad goals, the NYUAD-CGSB has established two major research programs that span key areas of genomics and systems biology: Biomedicine and Health, and Environmental Adaptation and Sustainability.
Students who meet eligibility requirements and are interested in applying for the CGSB’s Post-graduation Research Fellowship Program must submit the application form. Applications are welcomed until Monday, February 20, 2023 at 5:00 pm.
