15 talented researchers awarded with Rubicon grant
NWO has awarded fifteen talented researchers with a Rubicon grant. The aim of the Rubicon programme is to encourage talented researchers at Dutch universities and research institutes run by KNAW and NWO to dedicate themselves to a career in postdoctoral research. Rubicon offers researchers who have completed their doctorates in the past year the chance to gain experience at a top research institution outside the Netherlands (maximum of two years).
Four researchers will leave for the United States, seven for Great Britain, two for Canada, one for Finland and also one for Singapore. NWO received 113 applications altogether for Rubicon.
