Next Generation Fellowships, University of Cambridge
Next Generation Fellowships are aimed at promoting the prospects of high calibre individuals pursuing innovative research falling within the remit of the Centre, with special reference to the trophoblast. Applications addressing the Grand Challenges identified by the Centre will be particularly welcomed. The Fellowships are highly flexible to suit individual needs, and enable the holder to develop as an independent researcher within a supportive and stimulating environment. Holders are expected to apply for a Research Fellowship/Career Development Award from a research council or other funding body, or a faculty position during the course of their tenure.
Candidates should normally be within 5 years of the award of their PhD (due allowance will be made for those whose career has been affected for personal reasons). Applicants must display evidence of academic excellence, a strong research record, and the ability to perform independent research. The Fellowships are open to UK, EU and overseas graduates.
Applicants should first identify a Sponsor from the Membership of the Centre who will act as their mentor if they are awarded a Fellowship. After discussing their proposed project with him/her they should submit an application. Please contact the Centre Administrator for a copy of the CTR's NGF application form.
The application form and references should be sent by post to: The Centre Administrator, Centre for Trophoblast Research, Physiology Building, Downing Street, Cambridge CB2 3EG, UK, to arrive by Wednesday 2nd December, 2015. Please also send a single electronic copy of your application (minus references) to the Centre Administrator.
Interviews will be held late-January, 2016.
