Life Sciences - HFSP postdoctoral fellowships
The Human Frontier Science Program (HFSP) invites applications for its postdoctoral fellowships. Deadline for submission is August 29, 2013. Deadline for password registration and initiation of the online application is 13 August 2013. There are two types of fellowships:
• Long-Term Fellowships: for applicants with a Ph.D. in a biological discipline, who will broaden their expertise by proposing a project in the life sciences which is significantly different from their previous Ph.D. or postdoctoral work;
• Cross-Disciplinary Fellowships: for applicants with a Ph.D. from outside the life sciences (e.g. in physics, chemistry, mathematics, engineering or computer sciences), who have had limited exposure to biology during their previous training.
The HFSP postdoctoral fellowships are for three years and are meant to encourage early career scientists to broaden their research skills by moving into new areas of study while working in a new country.
