Return-To-Europe Fellowships are awarded to support outstanding scientists who, having left the European area for post-doctoral training elsewhere, wish to return to Europe for a post-doctoral position with a view to pursuing an independent research career.These Fellowships are granted for two years.
In order to be eligible to apply for a Return-To-Europe Fellowship, applicants need to have obtained their PhD in Europe and held a post-doctoral position overseas for no more than four years. They should normally be scientists with no more than six years of post-doctoral experience overall. Applicants also need to be members of a FEBS Constituent Society. Applicants for a Return-to-Europe Fellowship may not work or live in the host country/institution before the closing date of the call.
Return-To-Europe Fellowships are currently awarded once a year. Applications should be made before October 1st of the corresponding year via the online application system at fellowships.febs.org. For the 1 October 2016 call, the system will open for registrations in July 2016. After the call in 2016, the Return-to-Europe Fellowships programme will be discontinued.
Please note that, due to administrative rearrangements in the Fellowships office, e-mail responses from September 1 to 18, 2016 may be delayed.
