International students can apply for fully sponsored fellowships through the Human Frontier Science Programme Postdoctoral Fellowships 2023–2024. In addition to a living stipend, HFSP Fellowships will also pay for travel and research expenses. Fellows may also be eligible for a child allowance, a parental leave payment, or a relocation stipend depending on their individual circumstances.
The HFSP fellowship programme encourages ideas for cutting-edge, potentially game-changing life sciences research. Applications for initiatives with a high degree of risk are especially encouraged. The projects should be interdisciplinary in nature and use fresh methods to challenge established paradigms.
Early-career scientists are encouraged by HFSP postdoctoral scholarships to expand their research expertise by delving into new fields of inquiry and researching abroad.
There are two distinct fellowships available:
Applicants with a PhD in biology are eligible for Long-Term Fellowships (LTF) if they plan to expand their knowledge by proposing a research in the life sciences that is vastly different from their prior PhD or postdoctoral work.
Candidates with PhDs in fields other than the biological sciences (such as physics, chemistry, mathematics, engineering, or computer sciences) are eligible for cross-disciplinary fellowships (CDF).
- Level of Study: Postdoctoral
- Institution: Human Frontier Science Program
- Study Locations: Various host countries (see the list below)
