Please be aware that the British Council Israel has launched the 5th call for proposals under The Blavatnik Postdoctoral Fellowship Programme.
The Blavatnik Postdoctoral Fellowship Programme enables Israeli scientists of outstanding ability to pursue their research at the University of Cambridge, while fostering a scholarly exchange and greater understanding between researchers in Britain and in Israel.
We are inviting applications from Israelis seeking to undertake their first postdoctoral funding in the fields of life sciences, physical sciences and engineering at the University of Cambridge. Fellows will receive an annual stipend of £30,000. Additional funding of up to £6,000, to support direct research costs including bench fees, conference attendance and visa fees, will be available through the respective university departments.
Fellowships will be tenable for up to two years. Funding for the second year is subject to satisfactory undertaking of the Fellowship and subject to approval of the grant committee.
The deadline for applications is 22 October 2017, 10pm. Fellowships are expected to begin in October 2018.
Please see the general guidelines for Call attached. For more information and to apply, please visit the our website.
We have also attached an informative advert which we would appreciate if you could possibly hang on the information boards throughout the campus and relevant departments.
Please forward this information to colleagues and students who may be interested.
