International Postdoctoral Fellowships, Cambridge University
The MRC Laboratory of Molecular Biology is a world famous institution with a strong track record in training postdoctoral fellows who have gone on to become leading scientists.
Talented individuals wishing to work within any group of the LMB are invited to show their interest by approaching a Group Leader in the LMB. This initial part of the application process involves applicants being accepted by one of the LMB Group Leaders.
The LMB International Fellowship has been created for the development of innovative research, therefore the ideal candidate will be proposing to introduce a new project for the LMB, not the continuation of an existing project currently being developed within the LMB or elsewhere.
Successful applicants will be awarded a 3 year training and development fellowship, which is open to postdoctoral scientists who have recently completed their doctoral studies or are wishing to move into a new research area. Scientists of any nationality, who are exceptional, highly-motivated and independent are sought. Competition for these awards is likely to be strong
Work at the LMB covers a wide range of molecular biology, including structural and cell biology, neurobiology and immunology. For information on the current participating Group Leaders and their research interests, please see the application procedure on our website. The LMB provides excellent training in a collaborative multi-disciplinary environment, and proposals that involve collaboration between groups are also welcome.
Application Deadline: 7 October 2009
