Biomedical fellowships - BIF PhD fellowships last deadline 2013 (€ 2,650 p/m)
The Boehringer Ingelheim Fonds (BIF) invites applications for the PhD Fellowships. The upcoming application deadline is October 1, 2013. The fellowships are awarded to outstanding young scientists (not older than 27) who wish to pursue an ambitious PhD project of approximately 3 years in basic biomedical research in an internationally leading laboratory.
The basic monthly stipend for all fellows amounts to € 1,550. In some countries a country-related premium (max. € 950) is added together with € 150 per month to cover minor project-related costs and premiums for personal insurance and a spouse allowance and/or child care allowance.
The Boehringer Ingelheim Fonds is a public foundation - an independent, not-for-profit institution for the exclusive and direct promotion of basic research in biomedicine. It supports researchers and projects aimed to experimentally elucidate basic phenomena of human life and pays particular attention to the promotion of junior scientists.
