HFSP announced 63 young researchers who will challenge traditional thinking by investigating, among other topics, social interaction in bats, how cephalopods can bite without a joint, the environmental factors that control reproduction in coral reefs or how pollen immunity is controlled.
The Human Frontier Sciences Program International (HFSPO) today announced the award of 63 fellowships to the world’s most prominent young life scientists, chosen through a rigorous international selection from a total of 665 applications from scholars of 65 different nationalities. HFSP Fellows will begin their research in a new field of biology in a laboratory in a new country, according to HFSPO’s goal to promote international cooperation in life science research.
HFSP long-term fellowships are intended for postdoctoral scientists in biology. A total of 47 long-term fellowships will be awarded to the world’s best young scientists who have proposed original approaches within the boundaries of life science research.
HFSP cross-disciplinary fellowships support 16 young scientists with a PhD in non-life sciences such as chemistry or physics. These Fellows will make a bold change in the direction of research by leaving their field of training to embark on research that is at the forefront of biology and adjacent disciplines.
HFSP fellowships have an excellent reputation and offer a built-in return component. Starting in their second year of service, HFSP Fellows can make plans to set up their own independent laboratory. Fellows can then use the time remaining from their term to move to the new location. Each grant is valued at approximately $ 225,000 USD, spread over three years. HFSP provides these distinguished young talent with an enhanced financial package to support their careers in pioneering research
