FEBS Long-Term Fellowships are awarded to support long-term visits for the purpose of scientific collaboration or advanced training. These Fellowships are originally granted for one year and may be renewed for a further year up to a maximum of three years.
Applications and eligibility
Candidates should normally be scientists who have obtained their PhD degree within the past three years.
In addition, applicants need to be members of a FEBS Constituent Society, to be working in a laboratory in a FEBS country and to be seeking to work in a laboratory in a different FEBS country.
Long-Term Fellowships are currently awarded once a year. Applications should be made via the online application system at fellowships.febs.org. The 2020 call, for Fellowships to start in 2021, will open on 1 June 2020 and have a deadline of 1 September 2020.

FEBS Fellows Meeting
Following previous Fellows Meetings in Spain in 2012, France in 2014, and Jerusalem in 2017, 17 former or current holders of FEBS Long-Term Fellowships gathered from 3rd to 6th July 2019 in Krakow, Poland, for the 4th FEBS Fellows Meeting. It was held just ahead of the 44th FEBS Congress, and alongside the 19th FEBS Young Scientists' Forum. The Fellows presented their research findings, exchanged ideas informally, were inspired by invited speakers and discussed scientific careers. A report can be found on page 22 of FEBS News November 2019.
FEBS Fellows 'room' on the FEBS Network
A private community space on the new FEBS Network was set up at end of 2017 for current and recent FEBS Long-Term Fellows. For more information, including mentoring possibilities, please contact the room overseer and former FEBS Fellowships Chair, Prof. Andreas Hartig.
