About the FEBS Short-Term Fellowships
FEBS Short-Term Fellowships are awarded for the purpose of scientific collaboration, advanced training or employing techniques not available at the candidates’ usual place of work. Fellowships are granted for periods of no longer than two or, in exceptional cases, three months.
Applicants must have a PhD or at least one published paper as a main author in an international scientific journal. They should normally be scientists who have obtained their PhD degree within the past six years.
Applications may be made throughout the year, but should be submitted via the online application system at least three months before the proposed starting date.
In order to be eligible to apply for a Short-Term Fellowship, applicants need to be members of a FEBS Constituent Society, to be working in a laboratory in a FEBS country and to be seeking to work in a laboratory in a different FEBS country.
