WRF Innovation Fellows Program

The Institute for Protein Design (IPD) is fortunate to be situated in Seattle with a wealth of expertise in healthcare, medicine, computer science, materials science and engineering both at the UW and at the many Seattle-based independent research institutes. With a very generous $8 M gift from the Washington Research Foundation (WRF), the IPD has launched the WRF Innovation Fellows Program supporting research partnerships between the IPD and other Seattle-area research institutes or UW departments.

We are seeking talented researchers who have just finished their PhD to join the laboratories of mentor principal investigators (PI Mentors) at local institutions where, in partnership with the IPD, they will apply protein design methods to current health, energy, and materials related research problems.

We are no longer accepting applications at this time. 

Please contact the WRF Innovation Fellows program at wrfipd@uw.edu if you have any questions about the fellowship or application process.
