The Global Genome Initiative Buck Fellowships are two-year fellowships that contribute specifically to the goals of the Global Genome Initiative (GGI) at the National Museum of Natural History and include a 60% time commitment to biodiversity genomic research and 40% commitment to other GGI related activities.  The fellowships are aimed at increasing the capacity for biodiversity genomics at the National Museum of Natural History.

GGI Buck Fellowships are oriented toward contributing research on a topic relating to GGI’s overarching goal, “Preserving and Understanding Earth’s Genomic Biodiversity.” The program aims to leverage question-driven, peer-reviewed research on biodiversity, evolution and ecology in order to accelerate the acquisition, genetic identification, and genomic research on strategically chosen samples of the major lineages of Life.  For more information on GGI activities and goals visit the GGI website at ggi.si.edu.
