International Human Frontier Science Program 2010, France

The Human Frontier Science Program offers fellowships for basic research training in the life sciences across national and scientific boundaries. Applications are invited for two international programs that support postdoctoral investigators who explore new research areas. Frontiers of science are often found at the interface of biological and physical sciences and participation of scientists from outside the life sciences is welcomed. Fellows are expected to be exposed to new literature and methods during the tenure of their award while their previous expertise should be reflected in the research project.
Applications from female candidates are particularly encouraged.
  1. Long-Term Fellowships are reserved for applicants with a PhD in biology to embark on a new project in a different field of the life sciences. Preference is given to applicants who propose an original study in biology that marks a departure from their previous Ph.D. or postdoctoral work.
  1. Cross-Disciplinary Fellowships are open to applicants with a PhD from outside the life sciences e.g. in physics, chemistry, mathematics, engineering or computer sciences and who have had limited research experience in biology during their previous training.

Fellowships are for three years and offer flexible use of funding in the final year. The start of the third year can be deferred for up to two years while being supported through other funds thus allowing extension of the training in the host laboratory. Third year funding can also be used to return to the home country allowing the fellows to apply for the HFSP Career Development Award which provides a 3-year start-up grant of $100.000/year to help establish their first independent laboratory.

HFSP fellows can apply after completion of at least two full years of postdoctoral training abroad.Nationals from any country can apply for training only in a supporting country, while nationals of the HFSP supporting countries can apply to work in any other country. Current supporting members are: Australia, Canada, the European Union, France, Germany, India, Italy, Japan, the Republic of Korea, New Zealand, Norway, Switzerland, the United Kingdom, and the United States of America.
