Long-Term and Cross-Disciplinary Fellowships
Award Year 2013
HFSP offers three year fellowships designed to encourage early stage scientists to broaden their research skills by moving into new areas of study while working in a new country. Fellows have the option of using the entire fellowship in the host country or may use the last year back in their home country. The two types of fellowships on offer from HFSP are;
Long-Term Fellowships: These fellowships are designed to support applicants with a PhD in a biological discipline to enter into a different field of life sciences.
Cross-Disciplinary Fellowships: The focus of this fellowship is to support applicants with a PhD from outside the life sciences (e.g. physics, chemistry, mathematics, engineering or computer sciences) who would like to make the transition into the life sciences.
Fellowship initiation deadline: 16 August 2012
Fellowship submission deadline: 30 August 2012
