The Eberly College of Science which includes the Departments of Astronomy & Astrophysics, Biology, Biochemistry & Molecular Biology, Chemistry, Mathematics, Physics, and Statistics, ranks in the top 10 universities in the U.S. and has annual research expenditures exceeding $110M. Each of the seven departments is expecting to appoint one or more Eberly Fellows. Nominations for early career scientists with exceptional promise in basic research in physics, chemistry, biology, molecular biology, astronomy, mathematics, and statistics and/or applied research in health, energy, materials, or the environment are encouraged. Interdisciplinary as well as traditional disciplinary research is encouraged. Fellows who wish to also gain training and experience in teaching may elect to receive mentored teaching experience. Eberly Fellow advisors must hold their primary appointment in one of the seven departments of the Eberly College of Science. Co-advisors and cross-disciplinary research are also supported.

Eligibility and appointment
Applicants must be a current doctoral student or have received a doctoral degree in science, statistics, or mathematics within the past three years. Current doctoral students must have their doctoral degree prior to the start of their fellowship. Current doctoral students and postdoctoral fellows at Penn State are not eligible.
