Wellcome Trust-Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) Postdoctoral Fellowships: Biology, Medicine and Mathematics, Engineering, Computer, Physical or Chemical Sciences

The fellowships provide four years’ support for recently qualified postdoctoral researchers to gain experience of research at the interfaces between biology/medicine and mathematics, engineering, computer, physical or chemical sciences.
These awards are open to individuals with a relevant connection to the European Economic Area. If you are currently training or working in an academic or research institution in the United States, you are not eligible to apply to this scheme. You should be about to submit your doctoral thesis or have up to, but no more than, three years’ postdoctoral experience from date of your PhD viva to the deadline for applications to the scheme.Time spent outside the research environment will be taken into consideration.
You may have a background in any appropriate field of study (e.g. biology or medicine or chemistry or physics) but you must propose to address an important biomedical research question.The proposed research should fall within the Wellcome Trust’s normal funding remit.

Scholarship Application Deadline: 1 July 2011
