Application for BTP Student Membership
Students at any point in their Ph.D. program and from any department or any lab may participate in the BTP Program as members. Membership in the BTP entitles you to participation in all BTP events, and makes you eligible for travel fellowships. Becoming a member of the BTP is required to be eligible for a traineeship. The application process for a BTP traineeship is different from the membership process and is detailed here.

Application for BTP Faculty Membership
At this time we do not anticipate adding new BTP faculty as we seek to keep the size of BTP faculty commensurate with the number of NIH and UMASS traineeships we have available. Nevertheless, we occasionally have openings for new BTP faculty. We are always mindful of adding faculty with a strong connection to biotechnology and engaging faculty who are not committed to other NIH and NSF funded graduate training programs.
