Applications now accepted for Wellcome Trust-MIT Postdoctoral Fellowships

The Wellcome Trust, in partnershipwith the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), is offering opportunities for early-career postdoctoral researchers to carry out interdisciplinary research at MIT.

Wellcome Trust-MIT Postdoctoral Fellowships provide four years of support, with the first two to three years at MIT in the USA, followed by the remaining one to two years at a UK institution. Fellows are expected to tackle important biomedical research questions and undertake an interdisciplinary training programme.

Applications are encouraged from biomedical scientists with an interest in training in new approaches/technologies, or from candidates trained in disciplines outside the biomedical sciences who plan to apply their expertise to biomedical problems.

The application deadline is 22 November 2013 (17.00).
