    Applications open for the IBRO 2015 Research Fellowships

    IBRO Research Fellowships, which include the John G Nicholls and Rita Levi-Montalcini Fellowships, support post-doctoral training to applicants under the age of 45 for up to one year abroad in good laboratories. The IBRO Research Fellowships were created in honor of John G. Nicholls, the founding director of the IBRO Visiting Lecture Team Programme (VLTP), and Rita Levi-Montalcini, winner of the 1986 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine for her discovery of the nerve growth factor. 

    There is only one application to complete.

    Amount: up to 35,000 euros

    Length of stay: one year, non-renewable

    Application requirements:

    • A letter of acceptance from the proposed supervisor (Host Scientist) indicating that he/she is willing to accept the candidate and agrees on the proposed project.
    • Two letters of reference are required, one of which should be from the present Supervisor.
    • If available, evidence of an offer that the applicant will have a position to return to in his/her home country after the fellowship.
    • Applicants from the US/Canada Region will not be considered.

    Please note: The funds from IBRO Fellowships should not be spent on indirect costs (such as administrative costs of a research institution or university).  Qualified candidates will not yet have begun working at the laboratory where he/she is applying for the research fellowship at the time the application is submitted. Applicants coming from the United States and Canada will not be considered; however, research fellowships at universities and research institutions within the U.S. and Canada do have the possibility of being funded. This program does not allow for follow-on funding after the first year. In addition, as the program generally does not allow duplicate funding, if simultaneous financial support from another source is offered, approval is needed from the IBRO Secretariat.


    Application deadline: June 15, 2014 (11:59 p.m. CET)
