Georgia Tech Research Institute (GTRI) is the nonprofit, applied research organization of the Georgia Institute of Technology (Georgia Tech) and one of this country’s 16 University Affiliated Research Centers (UARC). 

 The mission of GTRI is to:

  • Enhance economic impact for the State of Georgia.
  • Serve national security.
  • Improve the human condition.
  • Educate future technology leaders.

The FOCUS program at Georgia Tech is one of the nation’s premier graduate recruitment programs designed to attract highly skilled students who have been historically underrepresented in higher education. GTRI is partnering with Georgia Tech to attract students graduating in 2024 to share employment opportunities. We also encourage postdocs, and recent, including December 2023 graduates to apply. 

The GTRI Focus Fellow program is open to all graduate students and postdocs. The selected GTRI Focus Fellows will have their costs covered for hotel accommodations, workshop fees, meals, materials, flights, and ground transportation (further accommodation details will be provided to all accepted fellows). The 2024 Focus Program will take place January 11–14, 2024.

The selected GTRI Focus Fellows will:

•    Learn the advantages of pursuing careers as faculty researchers at GTRI.
•    Spend the day at the GTRI Headquarters, tour our local lab facilities, and meet key faculty, staff, and executive leadership.
•    Have the potential to interview for current position vacancies that align with GTRI hiring goals. 
•    Learn more about faculty researcher employment opportunities at GTRI.
