Short-Term Fellowships for International Students in 2022

Short-Term Fellowships for International Students in 2022

The Federation of European Biochemical Societies is delighted to announce the Short-Term Fellowships for the academic year 2022-2023.

FEBS Short-Term Fellowships are awarded for the purpose of scientific collaboration, advanced training, or employing techniques for high-potential candidates.

The Federation of European Biochemical Societies (FEBS), founded on 1 January 1964, has grown to become one of Europe’s largest organizations in the molecular life sciences, with over 35,000 members in over 35 biochemistry and molecular biology societies (referred to as ‘Constituent Societies’) located throughout Europe and neighboring regions.

As a grass-roots organization, FEBS thus gives a voice to a sizable portion of Europe’s academic research and teaching communities.

Why should you apply for the programme?

Through its journals, Congresses, Advanced Courses, Fellowships, and other initiatives, FEBS promotes and supports biochemistry, molecular biology, cell biology, and molecular biophysics, as well as related research areas.

Numerous programmes place a premium on scientific exchange and collaboration between scientists working in different countries, as well as on the development of early-career scientists.

Application Deadline: Applicants can apply anytime.
