Fellowships to USA, Canada, and International postdoctoral students and recent graduates to participate in scientific research exchange programs in eligible countries. These fellowships support post-doctoral research visits to laboratories throughout Europe and the world.
Funding is intended for the fellow to pursue postdoctoral life science research in a laboratory located in a different country than where he or she earned their PhD. International exchange is a key feature in the application process.
The fellowship provides the travel costs for the fellow and his/her family. If the applicant is already at the receiving institute, travel is not paid. The stipend paid depends on the country being visited, other sources of income and number of children under 18 years of age.
