Non-Resident Fellows


Salk non-resident fellows serve as members of the faculty for renewable six-year terms. Nominated by the president and faculty, these individuals come from world-renowned academic organizations where they have achieved high levels of success in the research areas at the Salk Institute. They visit the Salk each year to help benchmark the Institute by advising on the scientific progress of its faculty and on the effectiveness of its existing and proposed scientific programs. The non-resident fellows also play a key decision-making role in the appointment and promotion of the Salk Institute’s professors.
