The Genetic Engineering and Society (GES) Center is now recruiting PhD students for our third and final cohort of students for the AgBioFEWS graduate training program at NC State University. This interdisciplinary, NSF-funded program is focused on biological and societal aspects of Agricultural Biotechnology in our evolving Food, Energy, and Water Systems. Applicants from a wide range of disciplines—including the humanities, natural, and social sciences—as well as national and international students, are strongly encouraged to apply

You can get a feel for the program by going to our website,, where you can also check out the profiles of our first and second cohorts (see below). Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are recruiting AgBioFEWS Fellows this fall/winter for two years of AgBioFEWS classroom courses and field activities scheduled to begin August 2022 (application deadline: 2/1/21). Note: Admitted students can begin their PhD work at NC State in August 2021 while engaging in our weekly seminar series until the Fall of 2022.

The best applicants often come from referrals, and we would just ask you to take a moment to think about whether you know someone who might want to apply. If so, please forward the announcement below and put them in touch with the Program Coordinator, Dawn Rodriguez-Ward ([email protected]).
