We accept 2–3 residents (or collaborative teams) per academic year. A residency is active for the entire year, however actual periods in residence will vary and should be mutually agreed upon by Coalesce and the artist. Residencies span a minimum of one month and we encourage residents to stay for two or three months as they will likely be learning many new techniques and biological experiments often require long incubation periods. UB is committed to diversity and inclusivity and encourages applicants from traditionally under-represented groups to apply. Each resident (or collaborative team) will receive technical support, access to laboratory equipment, an artist fee of $1500, up to $1000 in laboratory materials and supplies, and up to $1,000/month for up to two months ($2,000 maximum) toward travel and accommodation costs
Applicants should submit this form, and include a single PDF file containing the following:
Review of applications will begin on June 20, 2023. Applying by this date will allow the fullest consideration of your proposal. Applications received after June 20 will be reviewed monthly on a rolling basis.
If you have any questions, please contact Paul Vanouse, Director of Coalesce
In the Coalesce lab you will have access to a sterile hood, multiple fume hoods, an anaerobic glove-box, a gassing station, a large thermocycler, an autoclave, incubators, water baths, electrophoresis equipment, DNA transilluminators, a digital imaging station, a bioinformatics station, centrifuges, dissecting and compound microscopes, and other equipment.
UB is a premiere research institution that contains hundreds of facilities across the arts and sciences for imaging, analysis, processing, visualization, machining and fabrication of all kinds with which researchers are encouraged to engage. Coalesce residents will have access to many of these services, including Sanger and next-generation sequencing, spectroscopy, electron, confocal and fluorescence microscopy, and many others.
Proposals will be evaluated on quality and originality, feasibility, and applicability to our community strengths: genomics, environment and microbiome.
