Conducting exceptional clinical research requires close collaboration between academic and industry professionals. Our year-long Clinical Research Fellowships in Oncology, Neurology, Immunology, Ophthalmology, Pulmonary Medicine and other specialty areas give fellows the crucial experience they need to transform knowledge into practice, working directly with top institutions and physicians to strengthen our commitment to developing innovative new medicines.
This global program, founded in the mid-1990s, allows young clinical researchers to immerse themselves in key research under the mentorship of leading scientists and medical directors. The results have benefitted both patients and the scientific community, and have jump-started careers in clinical research and drug development.

At the end of the one-year fellowship, participants are asked to present their data to an internal peer review group.
Every year, the Genentech Oncology, Immunology, Pulmonary, Neurology & Psychiatry and Ophthalmology groups each select one to three qualified Clinical Research Fellows. The fellowship is open to third and fourth year fellows in major academic institutions in the United States. Exceptional senior residents may also be considered.
The academic program typically begins in July or August and lasts one year. Applications received after June 30 are held for consideration the following year. If you aren’t selected, you may apply in subsequent years, in accordance with eligibility criteria.
Clinical Research Fellows are paid approximately $81,000 (varies by institution) for the academic year and may be eligible for limited benefits; all within an environment that celebrates our company culture and helps employees learn, grow, and achieve their goals. Genentech also pays fellows' registration fees and related travel expenses to professional meetings.
While we do not subsidize the costs of temporary relocation requirements, such as housing, local transportation or personal airline travel, we will gladly provide information and guidance to assist with relocation arrangements. We will, however, assist with moving costs. (varies by institution and their approval)
